Damn Travis, it looks like you've been doing some serious hole saw work. The cage looks nice , I can't wait to see the car done.

You have to admit, the guy that invented them amazing squeeze clamps deserves a medal. Fitting tubing (or anything) is 100 times easier with them vs doing it with conventional C clamps. Cool

Yes sir the engine is done............... just need to put new valve springs on it, and have the valve job looked over. Motor only has 75 passes on it tops since I built it in 2002. C-head 557, cylinder heads just cleaned up and short turn layed back, with the single carb (1250) and the C-4 with a 4200 10" converter, whenever the car would halfway hook @ 3906lbs with driver it ran 9.60 flat @ 144 with a 1.40-1.45 60 foot. This car should be a good 600-700 lighter. Should be interesting.......

Galaxie Build - Page 2 Empty Bad 62

Post  hirock on April 8th 2010, 11:43 am

Travis look great Ive got a 62 just like it just wondering did you narrow the rear or did you get those tires on there with the stock rear end length and frame man I wish mine looked that good. I just finished a 472 to put in mine and just trying to get ideals looks like you got your stuff together.

Been working on the car after making it back from the bash. Decided to do the swing out bars for the first year or 2 then upgrade once I get this clutch deal sorted out. Welded the swing out in both sides , also over the last few weeks got the anti-roll installed.

Looks great Travis. Can't wait to see that one at the Bash next year. I like the anti-roll bar. Was that a kit or did you make that one from scratch. I'd love to have those 5 levers sticking out of my trans tunnel. Looks like a lot of fun.
