    63.5 Galaxie - "BlAcK StEeL iN ThE HoUr Of cHaOs"

    I figured i have got enough done on this ride to start a build thread.

    Quick flash back, picked up a 63 frame with power steering :





    Picked up some $100 Cragars:



    And some 175 Hankooks:



    Checking out clearances, i want this car to sit on the ground :







    Took a break and made a small welding table out of some scrap :





    Got my pinion angle right :



    Added this crossmember for my upper mounts :





    Gussets :





    Thinking about some sort of wishbone, that crossmember sits about 14"-15" ahead of the rear, close to an impala, so im looking at adding a Ybone in there :



    Then i made this lower front mount crossmember :



    Gussets for the crossmember :







    Gonna cut that crossmember and add a loop to clear the driveshaft.

    Running some Fenner Stone Pumps, Delta dumps and some no name slow downs. Coil under set up, gonna make the upper spring pocket the right size so i have the option of moving over to powerballs and a coil over set up if i want



    8" cylinders up front and probably 12's out the back.



    Also picked up some accumlators:



    I feel a little redundant posting a thread this early with the name of the car with it, but i feel that it is to good of a name to not put it up hahah

    "Cause the steel was black, the attitude exact...." Best car name I have heard. The song drops hard and the car does too! Love it.

    ^ it will interfere with the floor right behind the seat. I will have to open that up and fab some new panels. I will also need to open the driveshaft tunnel ( like my 64 was ) .

    It used to be a old auto workers union hall. My buddy blew a wall out and put in a roll up door, . . .

    This is literally a ground up build.
