I appreciate the offer, Bill. My wares don't take up too much room, I am taking my conversion van so I can 'camp' with it at the fairgrounds. Perhaps we can meet up an caravan down.

Well how about this for something that fell in my lap. I am not sure if I will buy it, but if I did it would probably be to flip it for some cash.

A friend texted me the other day and said that he knows of a 67 Galaxie for sale.

- 2 door fastback.
- one owner
- 68K miles
- 390 2bbl
- very clean body, only MINOR pimples on the rocker panel and... well... some MINOR ones around the left of the back window. Very minor.
- Running, and driving.
- power windows, power bench seat.

Now I ask a little more and he informs me that it's at his work. Well, he works at a Toyota dealership. Someone traded in this Galaxie for a 2010 Camry. Now the sales managers have this car in on trade that they really have little interest in. So my buddy asked me if I was interested.

So of course I go check it out today. I took pics, if you want, I will post them up or send them to you.

- Floors are incredibly clean.
- frame looks like its never been hit
- All of the exterior trim is present and in great shape.
- Runs and drives (once again)

CONS -
- 2 rear windows don't work.
- Passenger front window needs help when rolling up
- needs new kick panels
- Needs all 4 door panels. Sun damaged bad at the top.
- trunk full of old man supplies. It has a jar of trout bait if you need it.
- Leaks some oil. I don't know how bad, but while it was on the lift It was wet underneath.
- Leaks some PS fluid too.
- 4 wheel drums. Is it a con or just "comes with the territory"?

If you are interested, let me know. Might have to act quickly though as it is at a dealership and I would hate to see this thing to to auction.

I'm curious why you listed the trout bait under the cons. That would be a huge bonus! :buck:

Just spotted a '66 Galaxie 4-door for sale on Rt. 16 on the Mendon side of Uxbridge. My phone battery was dead so I couldn't get a picture and there was a thunderstorm in progress, but it looked decent.
If you can get me some pictures that would be great, and a price even better. :)

Interested in selling my 1967 Mercury Cougar XR7. There is a story behind this car and will spare everyone the details unless someone is interested. I drove it into my garage two years ago from the body shop and it has sat there ever since. It is still covered with dust but I will pull out and wash if someone is interested. Car is located in Phillipsburg NJ.

It is definitely more of a restomod than a correct restoration vehicle. It originally came with a 289 and three speed but now has a modified 351 Cleveland and AOD transmission from mustang gt. Have over $8000 invested and looking to get $5,000. Here are the details.

ENGINE - Rebuilt in the 90's with less than 500 miles since rebuild
Block is a 1971 Cleveland (not sure if two bolt or four bolt mains)
10:1 compression flat top pistons with .030 over bore
Camshaft is Erson grind around 292 duration and .500 lift
Rhoades hydraulic variable duration lifters
Rare 4v heads that were completely rebuilt with intake manifold gasket porting
Edelbrock Performer intake with 750 Holley Carb
Hooker headers with heat wrap
MSD electronic ignition with billet distributor and 6A box

TRANSMISSION - Brand New AOD from 1993 Mustang GT
Trans Go Shift Kit
Brand new 2300-2500 HD Stall converter from Monster Transmissions
B&M Transmission Cooler
B&M Slap Shifter

BRAKES - Four wheel powered disk brakes
Wilwood adjustable distribution block and all new brake lines

REAR - Chevy 12 bolt from truck (used for the disk brake conversion)
Believe it has 3.73 gears

BODY - Body is in good condition
Brand new front and rear valance.
Quarters and trunk are solid
Installed hood scoop
Body was painted in 2009 and has been parked ever since
Needs to be reassembled from paint

INTERIOR - Seat are in great condition (no rips)
New package tray in back
Some new guages on dash
Dash is in good condition
Headliner needs to be replace
Door panels need to be reinstalled

WHEELS - Torque Thrust wheels (need to be polished from sitting)
Four new tires

Floor boards are solid but were crudely repaired with some sort of sheet metal.

Frame is in great shape - has aftermarket frame rail connectors installed

New taillights and electronic signal converter box

I have all trim and peices needed to finish reassembing the car.

Car has very few miles and spent all time in my garage.

I bought it with a Bill of Sale but have 90% completed process for NJ Title back in '09. Lost interest in car and never followed through.

Hi, been a while since I've posted. Didn't get the house, haven't found a car.
So the search for both continues.

Merry Christmas everyone.
