“Red Rocket”
Restored in 1997 by previous owner. Head shaved for higher compression with aluminum retainers. Unknown street cam and custom 6-2-1 header. I considered it an unfinished restoration due to the car not being sorted out or refined.

Upgrades since ownership. GAZ adjustable front/rear struts and 330lb springs. Upgraded 7/8" sway bar. Solid steering rack mounts. Poly Bushings throughout. New Rotoflex rubber. Magnecor Spark Plug Wires. 70 Amp alternator. Overhead Valve Oiler. Clark & Clark Gas Struts for bonnet. Minator wheels wrapped in Vredestein 175/70/13 tires.Wizard Cooling Aluminum Radiator with custom low profile pusher fan on thermostat. Roose Motor Sport Silicone Hoses. GT6 MK3 intake manifold and custom headers ceramic coated. J Type Overdrive added. Gear reduction starter. Recent head work with new valve guides and hardened valve seats. All new interior carpet. Ford Galaxie 500 shift knob...

To be done: Spin on oil filter conversion w/ ports for oil cooler. Re tucked performance exhaust to for more clearance under car.
