Upgrading the Ford Galaxie With Disc Brake Technology

Posted by toby on Mar 15, 2014 2:28:59 PM

galaxie 500Named to tap into the nation’s fascination with newly created space program, the Ford Galaxie was an instant classic that combined performance and value with distinctive styling.  Manufactured in model years 1959-1974, the Ford Galaxie was a full-sized car designed to compete with the Chevy Impala.  Older Galaxies are in decent supply, so Ford enthusiasts have been able to acquire these classics for reasonable prices in recent years.  We just heard from the owner of a 1963 Galaxie looking to upgrade his drum brakes, and since there are so many of these cars on the road, we figured it made sense to share some advice with our readers.
