Description
 
So youre wanting a classic, but you want it with just a few custom touches? Stock trim, clean paint and a nice restoration are a must. An upgraded cabin, some timeless wheels, and a custom top are game changers, and when you factor in big block power its an irresistible package! Rarely do you find a car that looks equally good as both a hardtop and a convertible, but you get that with the 61 Fords. This Sunliner is a great car with the top down, long and low enough to seemingly stretch for miles. The wide, wide grille is in great shape and is very striking with its floating headlamps. Chrome bumpers are industrial strength, compliment the sheetmetal and have a great shine. Cool emblems are on nearly every panel and look great; from the fender peak trim to the turbine shaped taillights, youre going to love this car. Inside, theres a great mix of new and old. The seats are original, but theyre covered in custom two-tone beige upholstery. The primary material is a classic light tan while the inserts are darker perforated leather. The door panels are awesome: the upper halves match the seats vertical pleating, but theyre all modern from the center down. The armrests are one-off pieces, and the street rod influence is obvious in the contoured leather and map pockets at the bottom. The detail follows around to the rear side panels, and the rear bench ties the pattern together. Far more obvious is the hand-built center console with a trick arch armrest. Theres now a place for a modern stereo, floor ducts for the climate control and bright floodlights for the foot wells. The rest of the dash is original, but thats no bad thing thanks to Fords stock aesthetics. The convertible top is a year old, and works as a great contrast to the black body. Under the hood is the correct Z-code 390 cubic inch Thunderbird V8. Its a smooth and powerful mill, and the second in the line of great FE engines. The valve covers and air cleaner look great in silver against the black compartment. A Classic Power Products master cylinder and brake booster are a TON safer than the original pieces, and theyre about the only change from stock in here. New hoses, belts, and tune up parts mean youre road trip ready. This cars a runner, and the frame is clean, with new steering and suspension pieces. The sheetmetal is clean and ready to go, with no issues to report. A newer dual exhaust system has the right amount of rumble for a convertible...you cant be too loud when youre cruising! A 3-speed Cruise-O-Matic transmission sends power back to the original 9-inch rear with highway-friendly gears inside. The final custom touch is the chrome wheel set with moon style hubcaps and 215/70R15 whitewalls. Theyre a great addition to any Galaxie of this vintage. Clean and sharp, this big Galaixe deftly straddles the line between custom and stock. Great looking and better driving this car wont last. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Charlotte showroom. For more information, please call (704) 598-2130 or toll free (866) 542-8392.
