This 1961 Ford Galaxie Sunliner delivers vintage looks, V8 power,
and plenty of drop-top fun. So it's great to find it all in quite a
sleek and clean overall package.
These Fords had style. You see it up front with the intricate
grille and how echoes of the headlight's curve can be seen in the
front fender. The rear has afterburner-inspired taillights just
like the Thunderbird. And speaking of the T-bird, this Sunliner
also has its door handles incorporated into the trim design. And we
love how that zooms all the way to the back to give this just a
hint of tailfin. Within this classic style is a sporty attitude
that comes from factory pieces, like the full-length trim. And
there are also some well-placed upgrades like torque thrust-style
wheels. The shining red paint seems to bring it all together nicely
by offering a bold look and timeless style. The well-done bright
white convertible top only adds to this charm as it gives the
convertible the all-American appeal of a Coca-Cola bottle.
With the flip of a switch, the roof powers down. The interior still
gives you that same appealing white as the top, and now it's joined
by a tasteful black. As a full-sized Ford, you can share this
classic with plenty of family and friends. And the seats have the
right kind of vintage cushion to remain all-day comfortable. This
has a great vintage feeling everywhere from the artful factory
steering wheel to the AM radio that's still on display. But there
are also the right upgrades. Hidden in the glovebox is an auxiliary
engine temp gauge and modern AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input. They
make it easier to enjoy this classic Ford out on the road while
also never jeopardizing the vintage atmosphere.
The engine bay is so clean and tidy that you know you're going to
love showing this one off wherever you park. It's nicely detailed,
right down to the matching air grabber and valve covers. And while
this looks vintage, you also see the right supporting upgrades to
keep this running strong. It includes a new distributor, wires,
plug, and a large aluminum radiator. This kind of well-kept
tidiness is the secret to such a strong running package. The 352
cubic-inch V8 fires up readily and drives with the kind of
confidence that makes you want to hit the open road. Plus, with
power steering, a three-speed automatic transmission, power brakes,
and wide modern tires, it's truly easy to enjoy this open-top
Sunliner on every sunny day.
Complete with shop manual, this is the classic convertible that has
been given the right investments to make sure it's ready to cruise.
