Description

Build your own Goodwood winning car
1963 ½ Ford Galaxie Fastback Project
Original H&M 427 Race Engine

At the beginning of the 1960s Ford of America became heavily involved in NASCAR racing, concentrating their not inconsiderable resources on developing the Galaxie for the purpose.

The Galaxie 500 two-door coupé was introduced in 1963 and was immediately successful in NASCAR racing. Two of these Holman & Moody developed Galaxies were sent over to England in May 1963 for the Willment Ford team, and Jack Sears went on to win the 1963 British Saloon Car Championship in one of them . Today these formidable cars are among the most entertaining sights at historic events such as the Silverstone Festival and Goodwood Revival.

We offer a correct 1963 ½ rust free dry state car with valid Dutch road registration as the ideal starting point for an FIA legal pre 66 Saloon.

Included in the sale or separately is an absolutely correct, race ready and very rare Holman & Moody 427 Ci side oiler engine that was confirmed by Lee Holman as one of their original 1965 engines with H&M serial number 5HM395. A Dyno sheet is available on request.

Also included is the original Ford / H&M Galaxie FIA homologation correspondence and build sheets that we obtained from one of the original engineers at H&M in Charlotte USA.
