1972 Ford Galaxie Sleeper - 351 Hi Po - Build Sheet Posted. A local
legend ...This car is mean looking, with plenty of potential once
the small amount of body work is completed. Then use your
imagination for the paint job; or, I hate to say this; but, if you
really hate the car take everything out and put into a sexier Ford?
Oh lord forgive me!!! The entire engine swap for the Car was done
at Al's Automotive in Parma, Oh. I just learned today March 23rd
2021 that my car actually shows up as a featured picture on their
website. I'm telling you folks do not sleep on this Sleeper Car.
March 25th I just added a PDF of the build sheet. This should give
you plenty to sink your teeth into. I am telling you right now that
this is a steal.There is so much new on this car it's silly.
Everything was replaced, looked at or upgraded. All items under the
hood is in the 3,000 mile range. Set up like a true Vintage Ford
muscle car. This Gator like Galaxie 500 has a built 351 High
Performance engine. Mostly aluminum racing style. See pics. An
attention getter everywhere I go. I have a PDF that shows the
extensive work done to this car and a stack of receipts. Interior
is darn near flawless. Nice stereo. 300 watt speakers in the rear.
Body work and paint is all that remains on this 72 Muscle Car. I
must say it takes some getting used to looks wise but what is under
the hood makes that all better. It's just 'mean looking!' The
Galaxie has a waterless radiator system. To explain it better is to
say it has chemicals that cost roughly $45 a gallon that will never
need replaced. Do not add water ( ever or again ) nor ever add
radiator fluid again! Headers and dual exhaust. Sounds fantastic!
It has nice rims and tires. Built in kill switch. The vehicle has
roughly only 3,000 miles on the rebuilt engine. Roughly 65,000
miles total. This thing flies.
