Look guys if we keep trying RC2 just may respond. This picture was taken in about 1963 or 64 of my 1962 Galaxie 500XL, 406 4 speed car. Now tell me that wouldn't make a sweet JL or 2,3,4,7,8 etc .etc. Variations galore
Along with the 63 1/2 427 the 62 406 are my favorite Galaxies, well maybe the HP Sunliners also. For those of you that don't know how the 406 was first made, it was a bored 390 or a sleeved 427 with a 410 mercury crank. Later they made were made by us hot ordders with 428 blocks and using 391 truck cranks (a cheap lemans steel crank) or cast 390 crank..
The wheels are Mickey Thompsons. They were known as Rader wheels. Cast aluminum center with chromed steel rims. They were a brand new item when I got them for Christmas from my parents in 63. Great folks! The picture was taken by my shutterbug Dad with his 33mm SLR. He had many over the years so I cannot tell you the brand.
The 56 sedan in back belonged to the neighbors.

A JL of that car would be nice. That car in my garage would be nicer
Here's an interesting note....That 62 was sold to a good friend when I bought the 66 I still own and he still owns it. I have first pick if he ever decides to sell it! Here is a shot of both cars, this past summer, pictured together at a show for the first time ever.
