The beneficiary of a documented, $120K restoration that wrapped in late 2014, this sublime sedan is an intentionally low-key take on the fundamentals of every hard-edged muscle car: tough looks, sturdy components, reduced weight and tons of power! The car’s ground-up rebuild began with complete disassembly and a full media blast. Once that profile was clean and ready to work, a patched trunk floor complemented a repaired left fender, a repaired right rocker and an NOS left rocker. With that mostly-original metal solid and smooth, quality etching primer was layered under tough epoxy and thoroughly block-sanded. Eventually, that massaged surfacing was wrapped in traditional Wimbledon White 2-stage that literally defined the car’s ‘body-in-white’ intent. And today, this Ford rolls as one top-notch tribute that’s clean, reliable and extremely focused. Built to replicate an authentic R-code full-size down to the letter, this Ford draws motivation from a 427 cubic inch top-oiler V8 that was professionally massaged by Costa Mesa R&D Automotive Machine of Costa Mesa, California. That mill sends torque to a Galaxie “HEH” Toploader, which mixes an SMI flywheel and 11-inch Centerforce clutch with a new yoke and old school Lakewood scattershield. Behind that gearbox, a correctly marked driveshaft spins a powder-coated third member, which wraps a nodular center-section around a Traction-Lok differential, Dutchman 31-spline axles and NHRA-legal lug bolts. That industrial strength driveline rolls on a fully rebuilt suspension that, after being media-blasted, powder-coated and correctly marked, was upgraded with sturdy CalTracs traction bars. At the corners of the car, Super Stock drums bring everything to a hurried halt. And all that hardware rolls on two Torq Thrust Ds and two glossy steelies, which spin 6.70-15 Goodyear Custom Super Cushions in front of 275/60D15 Hoosier cheater slicks.
