In the early 1960s; automotive designers were looking away from the
showy design of the '50s and focusing on designs that were
minimalist in style but still striking in character. Focused on
providing a car with that was both functional and beautiful; the
Ford Galaxie met the challenge. The 1961 Galaxie almost totally
lost the tail fins of its predecessor; maintaining only small
blade-like fins that served as the cap of the significant round
'pie plate' tail lamps. The interior was sleek and offered options
that allowed buyers to step into luxury. Performance was something
Ford began to tout with the '60s Galaxie; offering several engine
options pushing significant horsepower.
This 1961 Galaxie Sunliner is a true work of art and spent much of
its life in an automotive museum. Previously identified as
embodying a 'functional expression of classic beauty'; this car is
the entire package. Having undergone an extensive restoration; the
Monte Carlo Red exterior is paired perfectly with the red leather
interior. Power black convertible top; chrome wire wheels; wide
whitewall tires; stainless fender skirts; dual exhaust and gorgeous
continental kit round out the beauty of the exterior. The 352 cubic
inch V8 is seamlessly paired to a Cruise-O-Matic automatic
transmission; dismissing the size of this vehicle when pushing the
gas. This Sunliner is undoubtedly one of the finest presentations
of a Galaxie available today.
