You can always buy a nice Chevy -- Like everyone else... You COULD find a cool old Dodge and raise a few eyebrows... Or, you can call RK Motors Charlotte and snatch up this incredible Ford Galaxie! Featured in the August, 2011 edition of Street Rodder Magazine, this unique national award-winner wraps a brutal ROUSH Performance 427 in a modern, Ridetech-equipped suspension, custom-finished steel and supple leather hides. And if you're looking for a fun classic that mixes one-of-a-kind style with top-of-the-line performance, it's the good time you've been patiently waiting for! BODYWORK/TRIM Officially baptized in to the Kustom world by Hot Rods & Custom Stuff of Escondido, California, this super slick Starliner has been carefully finessed and expertly finished to the absolute highest standards. The smooth surfaces that make up the car's sleek profile are entirely comprised of clean sheetmetal that was fully blasted, fitted with fresh rockers, mated to a new trunk pan and laboriously block-sanded. That solid shell shines in a killer coat of custom Raspberry Pearl 2-stage that's been lovingly buffed to a trophy-winning glare. And today, this Ford rolls as one excellent-looking custom that's completely devoid of filler, questionable seams, strange bulges or anything else that might demerit its otherwise superior construction. Beginning in 1960, the Galaxie traded ostentatious '50s bling for the Space Age traits that would eventually define one of the best decades of automotive design. And this coupe, playing on the decidedly minimalist appeal of the street rodding movement, pushes that aesthetic even further. At the front of the car, a custom, color-keyed grille plants custom-mounted headlights between a nosed hood, stainless-trimmed marker lamps and a narrowed, tucked and smoothed bumper. Behind that hood, like-new glass rides inside a filled cowl, straight stainless and capped windshield wipers. Beneath that glass, a flowing, monochromatic profile centers shaved doors between modified rocker trim, classy gun sight fender toppers and first generation Mustang mirrors. And at the back of those doors, correct pillar stars fall on a shaved trunk that caps factory taillights, a color-keyed valance, and a second narrowed, tucked and smoothed bumper. ENGINE How many times have you spotted a racy Kustom, sauntered over to grab a closer look and discovered some lackadaisical '40s powertrain dozing under its hood? No disrespect to 6-cylinder builds or flatty Ford fans, but some enthusiasts value performance more than authenticity. Dyno-ed at 460 rear-wheel horsepower in January of 2009, this Galaxie's ROUSH Performance 427SR twists big compression into rocket-like torque. At the top of the Dart block, a polished and color-keyed air cleaner mixes fresh oxygen with pure fossils in a 770cfm Holley 4-barrel that's seated between a Lokar throttle cable and braided fuel line. That carburetor funnels food through a polished Edelbrock Performer RPM intake, which seats a billet MSD distributor in front of an MSD Blaster SS coil. That distributor is centered between 9mm ROUSH wires, which snake spark around aluminum heads, Wiseco pistons, H-beam rods, a roller cam and a forged 4340 crank. Th
