What young man wouldn’t have fantasies about this car and the color of lipstick it is wearing? As soon as I saw it there were…uh…let’s just say “stirrings”.
There is something about the over/under headlight configuration of the 1966/1967 coupes that just makes me say “wowza!”. Perhaps it was my father’s 1966 Ford Galaxie that set me on the righteous path. Well, whatever it was, I’m finding myself slightly panting and just a little bit sweaty as I’m looking at the photos of this car.
Originally fitted with a 390 cubic inch powerplant, the owner states it was replaced by a 1969 Ford 428 with an Edelbrock manifold and a 750 cfm carb. Custom headers and Dynamax exhaust, Aluminum 4 row radiator with electric fans, a 9” 3:25 rear end, and a Ford C6 transmission are included on this gem.
Further, a CalTrac system with gas shocks, power front disc brakes and redline radials fitted to period correct American Racing aluminum wheels along with suspension revisions serve to make this sexy beast a handler.
The original interior only has had the carpet replaced, and judging by the photos is in absolutely fantastic shape. It is said to run, drive, stop, and turn beautifully. I believe it. The car has documentation which lists the dealer as Alvin C Ruxer, Inc from Jasper, IN and that it was actually manufactured on October 8, 1966. So very cool to have that info.
