This 1959 Fairlane 500 Galaxie was partially restored in 2013 and
is a beautiful example of the glory years of the American
convertible. The current owner has treasured this Galaxie for the
last 38 years. One element that makes this convertible special is
the fact that it is 'complete'. Finding replacement body/interior
parts for late '50's Ford is difficult, but this Fairlane 500 has
no such needs. The Galaxie's exterior was carefully re-sprayed in
Torch Red/White, the convertible top is power operated and glass is
tinted. Accents include nice brightwork, a set of chromed rear
fender skirts and Hankook whitewall radials mounted on steel wheels
with factory correct hubcaps. The interior has been restored in
red/black vinyl and is in very good condition. An AM/FM/8-track in
the dash is working perfectly. Our Galaxie is powered by a 332ci FE
V8 (B-code) rated at 225hp with 8.9:1 compression and Holley
2-barrel carburetor. To the best of the owner's knowledge, the
motor has never been rebuilt. A 3-speed automatic gearbox supplies
torque to a stock Ford differential with factory gearing and
braking is managed by 11" x 2.5" drums. Any model of the 1959 Ford
lineup, let alone a convertible, is quite rare. This Galaxie
convertible will not be here long - come take a close look. ALL
VEHICLES SOLD "AS IS".
