1970 Ford Galaxie 500 351 Windsor 2v from North America
I like it
The car was sitting in a field when I found it, so I had some minor work to do.
Replaced floor pans.
New points distributor.
Gas gauge don't work, need a sending unit.
Needs rear shocks ASAP.
I plan to restore it in a couple years.
This is my summer driver, so I have two cars on the road at once.
I've only put 500-600 miles on it so far, and it hasn't given me any problems.
The power is pretty decent for a cruiser, but I wouldn't win many races; the highway gears and 2 barrel carb holds it back I'd say.
It's got 4 wheel drum brakes, which are vacuum assisted, but you do need to stay on your toes and not tailgate anybody, which I don't do, no matter what I'm driving.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
