Good Luck,cool rides. Grandpa had an old 69 Galaxie,loved that car. Sold it to my a-hole step dad at the time,and he split form my mom and my grandpa without paying a dime. I remember seeing his name in the obits a few years back and got a lot a satisfacation out of it.Post in the engines forum and you will get the responses you want.

Get rid of weight is the best and cheapest HP you can find..So do a race style interior..ditch the inner fender panels..make a tube radiator support..Small fuel tank..Battery at the right rear..Bumpers can go..make rolled pans..heater A/C goes away..what you are left with is a body shell..

With 9's you will have to have a legal cage..Race buckets are lighter..

It is not all motor to get in the nines with anything..

Relax guys. Just cause he didnt have his facts straight one time doesnt mean he's a troll. Seriously, he explained his situation and that his bud had swapped trannys. We're here for hot rodding not people bashing.
Now to answer your question, getting 9's is VERY tough for a heavy car like yours. Obviously stock engine wont do (without throwing a ton of money at it). Like mentioned earlier, strip EVERYTHING untill you only have a bodyshell left. Then you'll have to tub it, pro street rear end setup (lotta $$$) driveshaft loop is obligatory same with a cage. Basically you'll have to spend a lot of money and time to get into 9's. Probably not worth for a car like a 67 Galaxie, but hey its your car. Have you ever driven 9's or close to it?

the gutting isn't quite necessary, instead of shaving 1000 pounds, I'll just need 100 more horse, so shouldn't I just concentrate on saftey, power, and hook instead of weight?

It's a lot easier to shed weight than to make more horsepower.

Mike,
He claims he is only 12, so I doubt he has even driven at all.

Based on his posts and his attitude, he has zero credibility. Furthermore, it is hard to believe a 12 year old has a 67' Galaxie and "a 7500+ rpm 427 clevor and e4od waiting for it, ... "
If he really had this 67' Galaxie, it would go a long way for him to post a picture of it with a dated sign that says "Hotrodders".

That's JMO. Ed

Nope, this guys a troll. Thirty something posts in one day, and all of it is bs. Look at how many other threads he started today. But be warned, each of his threads is a total waste of time. Some of them have been sent to the dump already. Hopefully the rest aren't too far behind.

right

Ain't no way. I own a 70 Galaxie and let me tell you from first hand experience there is no way a Galaxie with any piece that came from the factory will run close to 10 let alone 9. I'd like to get mine in the 14s. But will prolly scrape it for a lighter car.
