We now attend car shows and events in the Colorado River area. I have had the car for 10 years. I found it online for sale and went to look at it, the car had been sitting in the back yard of the owner for 6 years and was not driven so I had to do a lot of work upgrading and replacing hoses and all other issues I found that needed attention or replaced. It was originally Ford single stage candy apple red but from sitting outside for so long on a piece of carpet the sun had really done the paint in so I had it repainted Ford factory color RED FIRE METALLIC CLEARCOAT witch came on the 2011 Ford Shelbys. The car is completely stock with the original 351 Windsor and had 64,000 original miles on it.

Justin Karcha 1965 Ford Galaxie 500

Representing Start Your Engines!® Fuel System Revitalizer

303 - Justin Karcha - 1965FordGalaxie500Well first off my first muscle car was when I purchased a 1988 5.0 Mustang. I later sold the car and years later wanted something else but more unique. My dad had owned two 65 galaxies in the past that I never got to have a ride in so I was inspired to have my own to experience it for myself. I bought the car in spring of 2013. The previous owner had bought the car partially restored. He had put in some 69 Galaxie buckets and a 65/66 xl console with custom gauges. Then he decided to put a 390 in place of the 352. Then a 406 then a 410 and then found a 68 or 69 Lincoln mark 3 where my current 460 came from. I have another 460 to build for it by spring that I got on trade for some parts. It will be getting a mild cam and a couple bolt-ons. I recovered the dash in the car by myself which for a welder was pretty good. I like the car because I can learn how to work on it on my own because they are a fairly simple machine. I enjoy taking it to the weekly cruise nights in Red Deer Alberta where I can share it with other enthusiasts. But mostly I like the feel of the gas pedal and the sound of the big blocks torque being transferred to the pavement. It’s well worth the price of fuel. It’s more the smiles per gallon that I get. Well that’s about it, the project will never end and neither will my dream and vision of making it into MY car.
