    The cars in the sheds are really filthy. Here is sort of a before and after pic all in one picture of the 1966 7 Litre Galaxie 500:

    Here are a couple more cars that need a bath yet. A Hudson Super jet! I could so see myself cruising around in this. HA!:

    Scattered among the old rusties, there's some valuable iron in that collection. The auction should be interesting. My cousin would be salivating all over the Galaxies...he's got a '66 hardtop, but I'm sure he'd dearly love to get his hands on the convertible. Rick

    Well, everybody is interested, but we can't sell anything outright. All has to be sold at the auction.

    Rumor has it that the convertible is a $65,000 car the way it sits, but you couldn't prove it by me. It's something about it's serial number. Supposedly they only made 450? Anyway, this one is number 0004.

    The really dirty 65 2dr hardtop has a 352. The 66 convertible that is being washed in the pic has a 7 liter, whatever that is in cubic inches.

    Yes, lots of rain, but the biggest factor in making the grass grow so fast is that field was cow pasture for over 100 years, until March 1st.

    I'm looking at the dually truck behind the 500XL. That's my speed.
    Fixed up with a winch on the "A" frame & flat bed with rails, what a wood hauler ;)

    Quads, You may have to widen some of your trails, but all chained up that could replace your ATV... HAHA :)

    Great pics & post; for keeping us posted

    Yes, that's what it is. And it's the 4th one off the assembly line is what we are told. Supposedly a Ford Motor Company representative was out to look at it and offered my cousin any new Ford car for it because they wanted it for their own collection, so the story goes. But my cousin turned them down. Now that he passed away, the probate court told us everything needs to be liquidated and will be sold at auction.

    HA! Besides being full of nails and fence wire, that tree still has a tall live limb on it that leans right over the top of the Quonset hut. I'm not touching that one. HAHA!

    That's a Model B Ford. It's a dump truck. Already has a winch on the a-frame for lifting the box to dump it. It's a hand-crank winch and probably even works!

    Quads - an all original 427 galaxy convertible with that low of a production number will bring in some pretty heavy hitters to the auction (assuming the advertising is up to par). You may be witness to a whole bunch of money being thrown around. That machine really needs to be auctioned at a high vis place like Barret Jackson.

    I'm looking for that era mustang for a project, so I've done some recent reading on Ford engines of that genre. 427 was a pretty rare engine...I think it made 425HP (which is a real accomplishment on pump gas and natural aspiration, especially 50 years ago). There was also a 428 Cobra Jet, although bigger and meaner sounding name, it only made about 350HP +-. You are correct, there was also a 429...i think it was a super cobra jet and made 375HP.

    The 427 is by far the most rare and desirable. It is really is a 427, and I don't have any reason to doubt quads, then it will fetch a 50% premium over the same car with any other engine. That is a real treasure there. I hope you get what you deserve and it goes to a good home where they treat it with the respect it deserves. I would have an expert on Galaxies run the VIN and get a second opinion...and determine a reserve price. Don't let it go for cheap.

    409 and 427 for Ford.

    But in 1968 you could get 427, 428 or a 429.
    Chevy also had a 409 and 427

    But the Mopar 426 hemi would spank them all.::-)

    And AP is right (for once ;)) that the ford 427 was rated at 425 HP as was the Mopar 426 Hemi - this was the ceiling for advancing into a different taxation rate (at the time) so both were advertised at 425HP (the 426 hemi would typically dyno at about 470 hp)
