1963 Ford Galaxie 500 352 from North America
Awesome, can't wait to get it running better
Leaky transmission. Not sure where it is leaking from, but it leaks a lot.
The generator won't keep a charge. Thinking of switching it out for an alternator.
Seats and headliner are in bad shape, but the interior door panels and dash are in good shape.
Wheel bearings need tightening or replacing.
There is a lot of play in the steering. I assume the gear box needs adjusting or replacing.
The brake booster is bad. When I hook it up, it kills the idle, probably due to a vacuum leak.
It backfires out of the carburetor once in a while. Again, I assume due to some timing or vacuum issues.
This car has no factory seat belts. Planning on putting some lap belts in. Can these just be bolted to the floor boards?
The body on this car is in great shape; it was garaged for most of its life.
The suspension seems tight, but seems to be a bit low in the back.
The 352 runs strong, but I would like to increase the horsepower.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
