Audio & Electronics
My first car was a 72 Galixie and of course I loved it. I remember sitting on a picnic table with my girlfriend at the time and all I did was stare at my car as I sat next to her, she’s not my girlfriend anymore and I sold that car years ago but I always had a special place for that car for some reason. I’ve owned 2 more 72’s since then, one I put a 289 into (too small) and the other had a 429 from a 69 Thunderbird, now that was a good combination.
History of this Vehicle
I actually traded my 67 Catalina for the car. I started with the engine swap, it originally had a blown 400 in it, I ended up putting in a 429 with an Eldelbrock performer package. I had to get some engine mounts from a 69 Lincolin and ended up welding them to the crossmember to get it to work. I also made a custom heater core and mount so all you had to do was unbolt the assembly from the firewall to service the engine or trans. I removed the carpet and headliner, replace both the front and rear brakes with all new parts. The suspension was shot and I had plans for that next as well as a set of gears for the rear, I also thought about overdrive but life happened and I ended up selling the car almost 2 years ago. I also put a tach where the clock used to be and a set of gauges where the radio use to be in classic sleeper style. I still miss her but she lives on in my videos.
