The term 'Black and White' when used relating to a classic car often refers to a car that was owned by a police or fire department and used by the chief, sheriff or marshal. They were well maintained and lightly used cars that typically did not have the performance or safety equipment that the regular patrol cars did.
While the history of this 1961 Ford Galaxie Sedan is unknown, it presents as an original black and white from the era that is very clean and well cared for. It is equipped with a factory 223 cubic inch inline six-cylinder engine coupled to its original three speed column shifted manual transmission. It came from the factory very spartan with respect to options and accessories. It has a bench seat, AM radio and has no power options. The car is equipped with manual steering and brakes, both of which have been inspected and work very well.
The car has no rust and no rust repair. It has relatively low miles showing under 94,000 from new with nearly 60 years of history and enjoyment. That equates to well under 2000 miles per year. The door and panel fit is excellent, the sheet metal is perfect with no bondo or welds ever. The paint is very shiny but contains lots of imperfections mostly due to prep issues. It is difficult to see in the pictures. The chrome is good original with only minor pitting. The bumpers have some minor scrapes but look good and are straight. The interior was redone to a very nice standard at some point using incorrect vinyl. It looks great and is very comfortable. The undercarriage is clean with no rust of any sort. I have loads of pictures we can send you upon request.
