Spot on Heo, I do believe it was a '67, had a 390 in it too as I recall-  Better safe than sorry though Marc, I'd check the back for a banjo or any of Ned Beatty's personal effects ;D

Got my clock rebuilt with a quartz movement and re installed. Did a little engine room cleanup and starting to figure out what engine is in this deal.
There is no Cxxx that I can see yet.
There is a 2 with a couple dots where there code should be.
The date code is tough to read. I took a wire brush to it but still tough.
I read the date code as 6M15. That would be odd though as it's a 66. IF it's the original block. Doughtful. What do you guys think about the date code?
There is a 24 DIF code also which I think means mold#24 Dearborn.
Heads are C1AE-As so not original.
Tomorrow I'll check the stroke.
And yes someone needs some gasket goop help.

Marc it appears it has been changed out at some point as that is a 9M15 date code which also explains the no engineering number on it.

Ok we've got a 390 here.
It runs great. It was running 8* initial when I got it. Popped it up to 12 just for an initial tune and tweaked on the carb. Plug looked ok for now, you can see that it cleaned up over how it was before. The po ran Autolite 45s which is what I would run in this. A little hotter plug for idling around LA.
It's got an Ed on it now which is not my favorite. Think I'll switch it out to a 600 Holley with kick down and electric choke. Gotta find a good deal somewhere, hmm, lemme see, who do I know.......... ;) (hi Drew)

A bit late to the conversation but I am pretty sure these guys make the interiors that Dearborn sells:

http://www.distinctiveindustries.com/

They are nearby too.

And a tip- That under dash convenience panel is kinda rare and brittle.

Thanks 177. ;D
I've already ordered the seat material.
But I'm curious about the under dash panel. Planned to figure it out but haven't gotten there yet. :D

Was waiting to see if CDXXII would comment again but I guess he doesn't frequent the site. Can any of you Galaxie guys tell me about this pod o' buttons?
I'm trying to figure out if its going to stay or not. Or at least be incorporated into a console I want to install.

Marc, I remember my Dad had that accessory on one of his FoMoCo company cars.  It's a series of warning lights; lo fuel, seat belt, door ajar, etc.  Modern cars have those in spades, but in those days it was a luxury option.  Why not keep them?  I love those kinds of things on our old Fords and try to keep them working.  My '66 Fairlane has a seat belt warning light on a timer under the dash that still works after 42 years!

I want to keep them but I have to get them to work with everything else.
Notice the added AC that they're mounted to. Also have to add a stereo system which is important to me and a set of gauges. Just thinking out loud trying to get it all straight in my tiny little head. You guys give me lots of good info to bounce around and hopefully come up with the right way to do it.

The same box was used 65-66 Galaxie with few changes. Mustang might have offered it too. The plastic is very brittle just like the speedo surround. If you over tighten the mounting screws you will break the tabs.
The 67 Galaxie box was different.
Trouble shooting shouldn't be that hard. Finding parts might be. Maybe nothing is wrong?
There is vacuum tubing running to the doors for the locks.
The fuel tank sending unit is specific to this option. It has a 3rd prong on the electrical connector for the sensor.

Great stuff thank you.
Yeah the vacuum system in this car needs to be rebuilt.
I'll trouble shoot it and see if I can save it. May as well as long as the dash is apart.
Thanks again for the info.

Ok I think I may have an answer to the cluttered dash area.
I'm not going to use the am radio. Tunes are pretty important to me here in LALA and it's freeways. Keeps me sane. I'll keep it all just in case. Not using the radio leaves a huge hole. Why not fill it with another radio? Nobody makes a nice system that will fit the holes in the plastic. Everything these days is way different so I'll just hide it.
I don't know about you guys but I have to have gauges. I think I'll move the gauges into the radio area. If I use short sweep gauges like are there already I can use the stock bezel with just a minor fix or two to the bezel/cover plate. I think it will camouflage in there pretty well with some black paint. I'll cut a whole new piece of plastic to cover it all.
