Jay Leno's 66 Ford Galaxie

Jay Leno and the crew at the Big Dog Garage have been hard at work on this 66 Galaxie 500 for quite a while now and it's finally finished. The car replicates to an extent an identical 66 that his dad ordered new in 66 and Jay later totaled. The car started out as a one year only 7 liter 428 V8, that Jay replaced with a Roush 427 that makes well over 600 horse power with a 6 speed trans and 4:10 gears. The crew also updated the suspension, added Wilwood disk brakes and vintage air conditioning. All of this without changing any of the body panels. Throw on a set of classic torque thrusts and some redlines and to the un-suspecting you have quite the sleeper.
