    Greetings,

    Thanks for documenting your build and posting it.

    Your site has been good to reference for pictures and part considerations.
    Are you happy with the Hotchkis suspension?

    I am working on a 66…just in time for huge slow downs with parts. The plan is to add the hotchkis suspension TVS even though it has gone up in price, front disc brakes and air conditioning. We live in Florida.

    Our is a good 20’r. I take the kids to school in it and run it around on my days off. Just added tires, rims, new weather stripping and had a shop fix some small rust area’s. The car is garaged and has been pampered all its life by the look of it.

      Hey Brian, I am glad you find my site useful. I haven’t been able to drive my car yet but the Hotchkis parts did install nicely and look like good quality

    Nice project! Do you have pictures how the car looks like now? I’ve got a ’67 Galaxie, bought some Spohn parts also, but the car has to wait until I have finished the transmission swap on my Mustang. The Galaxie will also get a rebuilt 390 and front disc brakes.

      Thanks Christian! What area are you from? The spohn stuff it pretty nice huh

      I haven’t set the body on yet. But the newest chassis pictures are under the “engine” page & newest body pictures are under the “body” page. Once I get my engine completed I’ll test fit the body. After that I’ll pull the body back off to paint it .

  4. Hi.
    Really like your way of putting this togeather, I bought a -66 7l. more or less by misstake.
    Was bidding on a Buick Roadmaster but missed it.
    Scrolled down and looked on a yellow Galaxi -66 and bought it.
    Went by plane to pick it up and from time to time regret it on the way home but now its getting
    better and better to the mind.
    Will do some simular when I got the time and agan your´s look just great.

    (I´m useng a chevy 2.500 Hd 8.2 litr. 4×4 and cut this and putting a -46 chevy pick cabin up that is withned 1 foot over it, lower it with air in the back and 22″ wheels and 35″ tires start to look quite nice).

    have a nice weekend.
