Joe Conlon brought the former Dawson & Brady ’631/2 Galaxie lightweight to the 2011 show. Not some wannabe tribute, this is a true 427 Galaxie built with the AS-225-39D Special Lightweight Performance Vehicle package. Features include aluminum bumpers, brackets, transmission, and bellhousing, with the hood, fenders, doors, inner fenders and decklid made of fiberglass. The car was delivered new to Front Royal Motors in Virginia to be raced by Dawson & Brady, and Conlon displayed vintage issues of Mid Eastern Drag News showing the Galaxie in match-race action at legendary venues like Aquasco Speedway, Mason-Dixon Drag-O-Way, and York US30. The lightweight package added $1,400.15 to the window sticker. A little more than 200 packages were sold.
