CELEBRATING 60 YEARS OF BERT AND GALPINIZING!
2013 marked two amazing milestones in the legendary history of Galpin Motors…the 60th
anniversary of owner-president Bert Boeckmann at Galpin and the 60th anniversary of the art
of Galpinizing vehicles, which Bert introduced to an eager public six decades ago!
The two occasions are historically parallel, both unequaled in their quick rise to acclaim –
Bert’s career at Galpin, starting as a salesman in 1953, becoming general manager in 1957,
then owner-president by 1964, introducing the concept of Galpinized vehicles in the early 60s!
To commemorate these events, Galpin celebrated with a weekend-long party for a few
thousand loyal customers and friends, hosted by the Boeckmann Family and catered by Chef
Geovanni Euceda and Galpin’s Horseless Carriage Restaurant. The festivities were launched
on Saturday evening, Sept. 21, with an invitation-only VIP reception in The Collection, followed
on Sunday with a full day of food, music and family fun for everyone. On that special Sunday,
Galpin’s private Collection of wonderful classic vehicles was open to all spectators. Many auto
enthusiasts arrived in their own classic cars, which were put on display as well.

“
This is a clean custom which is quite unique. It was designed by
owner Frank Galpin of San Fernando, California, to highlight,
rather than change, the stock Ford contours. It utilizes the basic
design as established by Ford, yet manages to add a touch of
individuality, the distinguished mark of a true custom.
- Motor Trend Custom Cars 1954 Annual
Motor Trend also named GalpinCustom
one of “10 Best” customs of the year.

The art of “Galpinizing” can be traced to this customized 1952 Ford Convertible that Frank Galpin
described as “The Car of the Future” when it was featured on the cover of the June 1953 edition of
Motor Trend! Galpin had utilized in-house custom metalwork, then added Mercury and Lincoln parts to
the convertible. This marked the first time on record that a car dealer created an in-house customization
of an off-the-lot new vehicle. Known as the “GalpinCustom,” it first appeared at the 1952 Los Angeles
Motorama. The GalpinCustom was named one of the 10 Best in Motor Trend’s 1954 “Custom Cars
Annual”! We are unable to locate Frank Galpin’s original GalpinCustom. Can you help us find it?

roudly continuing Galpin’s 60-year legacy of customizing vehicles, the GTR1 is Galpin’s
first coach built supercar! Based on the Ford GT, the GTR1 is an interpretation of how
the GT might have looked and performed like had it continued its evolution. The Galpin
Ford GTR1 boasts a power plant capable of 1024 hp with an estimated 739 ft-lbs of
torque generated from a twin turbocharged 5.4L V8 engine that is mechanically capable of
speeds in excess of 225 mph -- a truly modern and bold American mid-engine supercar!
Designed by Galpin Auto Sports, the GTR1’s handcrafted all aluminum body was widened
5” in the rear, compared to the original GT, and was constructed by renowned concept
car builder Metalcrafters. The Galpin Ford GTR1 was introduced to great acclaim on the
Concept Lawn at the 2013 Concours d’Elegance in Pebble Beach.

FEBRUARY 2014
In the late ‘60s, when the first Galpinized surfer vans became a national craze and Galpin launched the conversion
van industry, along came Madam Frenchy’s! Madam Frenchy’s was one of a handful of extreme conversion vans
that once again revealed the unique creativity of Galpin Motors. These are ideas which, at that time, were a
reflection of the zaniness and creativity that you’d only see in Hollywood! While the exterior doesn’t give away
much, the interior was truly flamboyant: outfitted with fleur de lis wallpaper (in red velvet), posh love seat,
elegant crystal chandelier, and – of course – an original oil painting hanging over the working fireplace!

ert Boeckmann was Frank Galpin’s assistant manager at Galpin Ford when the Edsel was launched in late 1957. Frank felt that Bert would make the
ideal manager for Galpin’s second dealership, Modern Edsel! The excitement around Ford Motor Company’s new Edsel line was huge, although the
vehicle itself was shrouded in secrecy. When Bert finally got a look at the new car, he was disappointed; public reaction was similar. Its design may
have been ahead of its time because today they are a sought after classic. This beautiful 1959 Edsel Corsair was sold new at Modern Edsel in 1959 and
still maintains its original warranty card sign by Frank Galpin. It has been beautifully restored to its original showroom debut glory by Galpin’s restoration
department, Galpin Classic Auto Service. The “E-400” 361 cubic inch high performance optioned V-8 engine was completely rebuilt, as well as the “DualPower” automatic transmission. All steering, brake and suspension parts were serviced or completely rebuilt. The entire body was disassembled and
prepared for “Jet Black” exterior paint, which was applied to the body, doors, hood and trunk. As originally done, specific engine bay parts were painted in
gloss or semi-gloss black colors. Ironically, the most difficult task in the restoration was finding the vehicle’s original “Modern Edsel” license plate frame!

Memorial Day
ith his visionary and often revolutionary approach to projects, Bert Boeckmann listened to engineer/inventor Henry Smolinsky’s
goal to develop a car-plane and didn’t think the dream was impossible at all. Bert provided Smolinsky with a 1972 Ford Pinto
to use as the “flying car” prototype. The Pinto was ideal because of its light weight of 2,100 pounds. With a Cessna Skymaster
providing the aerodynamic “heart” of the car-plane, as well as over 40 intricate modifications, it could be flown to any airport, where the wings could
be quickly detached, and then the car could be easily driven away. Smolinkski’s chief engineer was A. M. Kaplan, a Lockheed and North American
Rockwell veteran. The Mizar (named after twin stars in the Big Dipper constellation) soared with an intended range of 750 miles and an air speed of
130 mph. The Pinto’s 1.6 liter engine propelled the Mizar down the runway at 65 mph; once airborne, the car engine was shut off, and the Cessna’s
210 hp propeller engine was throttled up for liftoff, flying and landing!
Fun Fact: Inspiration for the “Flying AMC,” in the James
Bond film “The Man with the Golden Gun,” came from the
Mizar “Flying Pinto.”
George Tuers at the
wheel.
Created by Dick Harding and driven by George Tuers, this ’65 pickup was sponsored
by Galpin Ford in 1969-71. One of the most unusual vehicles ever seen, fans
cheered when George drove it, going backwards at 120 mph, with steering and
speed controlled by shifters and Lockheed T-33 brakes helping keep things under
control. Tuers had to stick his head outside the cab to be able to see down the track,
since the raised bed blocked his view in the rearview mirror! The Backup Pickup
rear axle (actually front) is from a 3/4-ton Ford truck. This exact replica was built
by Galpin’s Dave Shuten in just 12 weeks! It is powered by a stack-injected 427
Ford, and has an incredible 950 hp!

Built by Gary Weckesser in just eight months, the MACH IV was a popular attraction on the show circuit from 1969-75. The vehicle was sponsored by Galpin
Ford and worked on by Galpin’s Service Department, and featured a chassis made from 4130 chrome moly tubing and a modified fiberglass 1969 Mustang
“Sports Roof” funny car shell. Although the MACH IV was a show car, it definitely had the stuff to back it up, hitting 180 mph and posting a 7-second quarter
mile time. Powered by four Ford 351 Windsor V8 engines with a total displacement of 1,404 cubic inches; the 351s were built with 10.5:1 compression and
faced back-to-back, requiring reverse-grind cams for the engines up front. The most interesting aspect about the Mach IV: all its mechanical presence
powering all four wheels was achieved with a single clutch!

SHELBY
Lee Iacocca introduced Carroll Shelby to Bert Boeckmann in the early 1960s. Carroll was quoted in an interview at SEMA 2008: “Lee said ‘Make sure you do business with this man
because he’s great!’” He went on to say, “We started building a few of the (Cobras) in England and Bert and Bob Tasca on the East Coast were the two people who got behind it.
If they hadn’t gotten behind it, probably nobody would have heard of the Cobra.”
Galpin’s relationship with friend and business partner Carroll Shelby includes an awesome series of FIRSTS: the auto icon himself selected Galpin Ford as the first dealership in California
and exclusive Valley dealer to merchandise his fabled Shelby Cobra, and Galpin sponsored the first Shelby Cobra Club as well as the first Mustang Owners Club! Galpin Motors proudly
continues our tradition of building, modifying and tuning the legendary Shelby vehicles. Our GAS Shelby Mod Shop (one of only two official Shelby Mod Shops in America) is staffed with
trained Shelby technicians using specially engineered and Shelby approved parts. GAS builds, to customer specs, high-powered Shelbys and Mustangs in-house, and these vehicles are
eligible for inclusion in the exclusive Shelby Registry! Pictured here is the 1965 Shelby GT350 “Barn Find” originally sold to Galpin Ford in San Fernando. Having been stored and forgotten
about for 40 years, Galpin Classic Auto service got it running to perfection while preserving all of the amazing patina!

“UNCLE”
BOB’ S
BOUNCING
BRONCO
In the late 60’s, Galpin Get Ready Manager Bob Ferris was so
frustrated with obstacles that confronted him when he was
trucking off-road that he approached Bert Boeckmann with the
idea of creating a custom 4x4 pickup for customers, ready to drive
off the Galpin lot! At that time, truck sales were down nationally, so Galpin got
creative, building a prototype Galpinized 4x4 that featured larger bumpers, chrome-plated winches,
larger wheels and tires, a rifle rack, special paint and spotlights! The Galpinized truck was an instant
hit! Sales of 4x4s at Galpin soared from 2 a year to over 25 a month, an increase of 1500% in sales. Adding
to the excitement, Galpinized 4x4s quickly set off the 4x4 craze in Southern California and beyond. Ford
Motor Company even asked Galpin to create a few prototype vehicles for a national advertising program!
The Bronco pictured here was sponsored by Galpin Ford and championed by driver/owner Bob Lewis.
It traversed the rough desert terrain in Baja California, Mexico and was the first vehicle to ever
feature KC Headlights!

Galpin Motors has a long and proud tradition of supporting National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) events, race cars and drivers. The NHRA
officially began in 1951, after post-war hot-rodders were racing their hopped-up cars at Bonneville, known as the “Southern California Timing
Association.” Hot Rod Magazine editor Wally Parks formed the NHRA to establish safety and performance standards for hot-rodders, with
the first official NHRA race held in April 1953 at the L.A. County Fairgrounds. Interest in drag racing quickly grew in Los Angeles, and by
1955, Lion’s Drag Strip in Wilmington and the San Fernando (“the Pond”) Raceway were built. Galpin Ford didn’t miss a beat, and – starting
in the ‘60s -- sponsored several drag racing drivers and teams. Galpin’s own 1964 Thunderbolt was raced regularly at “the Pond.” Galpin
also sponsored Larry Fullerton’s Original Maverick and Trojan Horse. Larry and his Trojan Horse went on to win Ford Motor Company its first
NHRA Funny Car World Championship in October 1972! These are drag strip legends that will live forever, the roar of their engines matched
only by the roar of their enthusiastic fans in the bleachers of these NHRA drag strips!

A
1930
MODEL
ROADSTER
When he was a boy, Bert Boeckmann loved playing around (and on) his Uncle Albert’s 1930 Ford Model A Roadster (the
same model as in this photo). After Bert’s 16th birthday, his uncle gifted him with the vehicle, Bert’s first car! After driving
it a short time, Bert sold it to an acquaintance who claimed he desperately needed the vehicle but didn’t have much money.
Bert discovered later that the man had re-sold the Model A later that same day…for a huge profit. Bert feels this was the
first time he ran into a “car salesman”…and learned quickly that not all people are as honest as he is! FUN FACT: Most
likely, Bert’s 1930 Model A was built at Ford’s downtown Los Angeles plant. There’s a good chance that Frank Galpin,
hired by Ford as a body-checker at that time, worked on what would eventually become Bert’s first car!
