1965 Ford Galaxie 427 Cammer SOHC

Original Watkins Glen Raceway X garage prototype test car. The SOHC 427 was outlawed by NASCAR was considered an unfair advantage. This experimental test car was fitted with upgraded Ford parts and components. Some components include, big disc brakes, heavy duty control arms and suspension, huge experimental Ford cast iron exhaust manifolds, extremely rare NOS glass headlight covers and more. Most test cars of this nature were crushed after testing was completed, this Galaxie somehow escaped with a Ford engineer named Bobby Henderson and spent the following years driving local streets in Elmira NY, 24 miles South of Watkins Glen Raceway. In 1989, a few years after Mr. Hendersons death, the family sold off his collection of cars and engines. This Galaxie ended up being sold and transported to Texas and was completely restored. Gathering very few miles since restoration and retaining all of the X garage modifications the Galaxie is truly a one of a kind car.
