1972 FORD Galaxie 500 Original P CODE 429 PI Police Interceptor COP Patrol CAR
1972 FORD GALAXIE 500 P Code 429 Police Interceptor. A TRUE 429 PI car. I have owned this car since the mid 1980’s. >>> I believe the car was used by the Nebraska State Patrol. Before I had the car repainted, the shadow of the Nebraska State Capital was located in the center of a ring on both front doors. I do not see any evidence of an outside spot light or light bar placement. It has a rubber plug on the left rear area where the old radio antenna whip was once located. I do not see any evidence of a shotgun mount. >>> I have the ORIGINAL 429 PI engine that the car came with stored, and it IS included in this auction. This engine was running when it was removed it to put in the current engine, The original 4300D Autolite carburetor (D2AF-LA) is included – see photo of trunk, it’s disassembled in a box, and I have included a new rebuilt kit for the carb,.The original block has a 2C13 date, the original single point distributor is D2AF-12127-MB dated 2B24. The 3.00 Traction-Lok differential (pumpkin) is included. >>> The car currently has a working 1972 429 PI engine that I added a 460 crank to when it was rebuilt about 3000 milesago. This engine has TRW forged .060 pistons (472 cubes), Crower level 2 cam, adjustable Crane roller rockers, Edelbrock Performer intake and Edelbrock 600 cfm carb. It has ported 429 PI D2OE-AB heads and port matched 429 PI cast iron exhausts. It retains the factory finned aluminum valve covers. It has an MSD distributor, MSD coil, and adjustable rev limiter. This motor runs well. >>> The transmission is the original C-6 Special automatic. It has a shift kit so the tranny will essentially shift immediately if you are shifting it. The rev limiter was added to reduce the chance of blowing the engine if it was accidently downshifted – the gear selected is the gear the tranny will go into regardless of RPM. The torque convertor is not stock. The tailshaft is cast iron, I believe the 17-1/2 inch one. I believe it has the H servo. The rear gear is currently a 3.70 Traction-Lok. I see evidence of a small leak under the 9 inch housing. >>> Years ago the car/wheels received a new coat of brown paint, new original cloth seat covers and padding (the person who did the upholstery found the original material – paisley is what I call it, the Marti report says it is “Ginger Cloth/Vinyl Bench Seat.” The carpet was replaced with original style material as well. The interior looks good. The head liner has a couple of small holes. The bumpers were rechromed when the car was being refurbished. >>> The car has a new gas tank from Tasman, when I drained the fuel it has a dark brown color – so I replaced the tank this month. The fuel lines have been replaced. It has a new mechanical fuel pump and filter this month. The gas sending unit works. The car came with an electric fuel pump, it is in the tank but it is not working. >>> The floor pans and trunk floors look solid, but if they were blasted I’m sure some issue might be found (it is 48 years old). The car has the original jack, lug wrench and hold down in the trunk. The frame has evidence of mild rust but is solid. The exhausts sound free of leaks, the cam produces a lope. The power steering works well. The brakes feel solid, I inspected the power front disc pads, they look good. >>> The doors align well and shut solidly. The rocker trim is original and looks OK at 20 feet, but could use restoration. The wheel well trim is not complete – I have the right side pair and an NOS right rear – I do now the left side pair. I added an NOS Galaxie and 500 trunk emblems after the photos were taken. >>> The Certified Calibration Speedometer (140 MPH) works but is not geared for the 3.70 gear (it is geared for the 3.00). The plastic cover over the speedometer need to be taken off, the inside looks to have a slightly cloud likely form dust,
