Totally Bitchin’ Video: The Story of a Dual Quad, Four Speed, 427 Powered 1964 Galaxie 500 XL


Totally Bitchin’ Video: The Story of a Dual Quad, Four Speed, 427 Powered 1964 Galaxie 500 XL

This video has been kicking around for a little while but we were recently reminded that we had never had it up here on the blog and that’s a crying shame. A simple, yet riveting video about a dude and his totally killer Galaxie, it hits all the right gearhead notes and will have you smiling like dummies, just like us the whole time.

It is a story lots of us can appreciate. The car comes, the car sits, the car becomes a storage shelf, and then the car gets a new lease on life. Film maker Ben Pender-Cudlip was there for the tarp being removed, the carb being primed, and the key being hit on a truly bad ass 427. The car has southern moonshine history and all!

If there were ever an example of “less is more” filmmaking Some Old Ford is it!

  1. The ORIGINAL Speedy

    a Thunderbolt hood scoop and some cold air zip tubes.

    And put me in the camp that favors some paint stabilization (at least some quick “Two-Lane” style primer, if not a full respray)

    For some reason the video stopped before he ripped a monster smoker on that side road he pulled of onto. Why?

    The old Galaxies, Fairlanes, and Torinos….love’em. Glad to see it can still be driven…I’d be tempted to do the rust repair/paintjob route, but would still flog the hell out of it. Would be a blast to hear some of the stories that old Ford can tell!

    Back when cars were cars and you drove them and got sideways and using both of your feet and hands to keep it on the road.I know what it’s like to kick a Tri-Power in. I had a ’64 GTO 428 Tri-Power with a Borg Warner 4-speed( that came from behind a 427 Ford).

    Great, great article except for the one comment. No Subaru witha turbo would stand a chance against this car. I have a dual quad 57 Vette and have already been confronted by a WRX turbo subby and blew his doors off in the 1/4 mile…………but again GREAT ARTICLE
