As the saying goes, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, especially when you have the means to build your own treasure. Enter this 1962 Ford Galaxie 500 Racer, an old barn find that was completely rebuilt according to the 1962 FIA Rule Book by Vin Racer. Yeah, we’re in love as well.

Under the hood is a totally renewed and refreshed Ford 390 engine stroked to 406 cubic inches controlled by a Ford transmission alongside period-correct speed equipment. The Saloon Racer also features brand new all-steel body mods, track suspension, minimalist interior, drive train, and a full 10-point safety cage for good measure. She’s also finished with hand-polished paint, all hand-painted lettering, and designed to deliver viable performance at open track days such as Willow Springs, Buttonwillow and Las Vegas. Vin Racer also worked to keep all the original chrome, and patina wherever possible, but we’re certainly not mad at all the modifications this beauty has to offer either.
