Bud and Irma Redus' 64 Ford Galaxie 500

The September 2008 Cruiser of the Month is a 1964 Ford Galaxie 500 owned by Bud and Irma Redus of Perkins Oklahoma.

Bud has spent over two and one half years with the restoration of this classic Ford.  Bud and his stepson, Adam Listerman started the restoration with a complete body removal down to the bare frame.  Adam is a paint and body specialist by trade and his professional ability really shows with the work on this Ford Galaxie restoration. Bud and Adam chose the original Ford Turquoise Mist for the body with a white vinyl top. Ford did not deliver this car to the original dealership with a paint job like the one Adam put on it!

Big Ford 390 V8 with 300 Horse Power

The big block Ford 390 V8 was brought back to new condition by Bud’s life long friend,  J W Lafollette who also is a life long Perkins’ resident.  J W has been a Ford guy, all of his life and is truly an expert on rebuilding Ford products.  Along with the 300-horse power V8, Bud and J W installed a new Ford AOD overdrive transmission.  The overdrive tranny really makes the big Ford a real highway cruiser.

The striking black interior is all restored to better than original by Ronnie Drummond of Shawnee. Ronnie has done work for several members of the Cimarron Starlite Cruisers and always does great interior work.

The Galaxie 500 now sits on a set of fifteen inch Craiger Chrome Wheels, which adds to the Ford’s striking appearance.

Not only did Ronnie Drummond Interiors make the inside look good, he also restored the trunk of the Galaxie to better than new condition.

Bud used Greg Donough Chrome to restore all of the stainless, aluminum and chrome work on the big Ford.

Bud and JW also have added power disc brakes, rebuilt the power steering, rebuild the power windows, air conditioning and added electric cruise control.
