For Sale: 1959 Ford Galaxie in Ft Worth, Texas


Vehicle Description

This 1959 Ford Galaxie 500 is the Blue Oval answer to the Bel Air, and my question to you is this: when was the last time you saw a beautifully built '59 Ford that was this darn cool? Heck, when was the last time you saw a 2-door '59 Ford of any kind? This is a rare, rather unusual, and super-cool classic that straddles the line between lead-sled and low-rider, featuring a strong 302 V8 under the hood, a custom A/C interior, and loads of unforgettable curb appeal. Wanna be the coolest son-of-a-gun at the car show? Here's your ticket to ride...

Fresh from the warm and dry climate of Texas, this long 2-door hardtop is ready to hit the streets with its Dark Gray over Dark Blue Metallic color combination and wicked low stance. And what could be better than this slammed lead-sled for hauling your crew? The paint job is a few years old but still very dynamic, and it definitely stands out with those modern, dark two-tone colors, giving it an updated look that will remain stylish indefinitely. The top was painted Dark Gray and the insert in the long spear profile trim matches it, contrasting the Dark Blue paint perfectly. The finish has a few years on it, and it's not without a few minor imperfections found here and there, but the killer look is unmatched and the driver-quality finish is perfect for a car you want to take out at a moment's notice. Custom work includes that amazing grille up front, the faux side pipes at the profiles, and the custom continental kit out back that features an apropos memorial for a young lady that the build was dedicated to. The door handles were shaved, and bulging rear fender skirts were added to make the car look even lower and more swooping. The aforementioned trim running along the length of the bodywork emphasizes the big Ford's '50s styling, particularly the sculpted quarter panels and big fins out back. And speaking of the back, check out those incredibly cool rocket-style taillights. The car just looks fantastic and it's obvious that someone made a dedicated plan and stuck to it during the build, so everything works together to create something very unique. Chrome bumpers fore and aft are the perfect bright endcaps, and the dark tinted windows add a little mystery to the car.

The custom interior echoes the theme of the blue bodywork, and features comfortable bench seats upholstered in two-tone, cloth-and-vinyl materials for a trick twist on an old favorite. All the upholstery is newer and a center console was made up around a Lokar floor shifter, giving the cabin a very finished look and feel. That's the original dashboard, but it's been punctuated with high-end woodgrain accents and a full array of white-faced AutoMeter gauges, along with lots of shiny chrome. In that dash you'll also find a cleverly integrated Vintage Air A/C unit, although it needs some service to blow cold air again, and tunes are delivered via a Kenwood AM/FM/CD/AUX head unit installed in the center. A banjo-style steering wheel with a thick wood-rim hangs on a polished tilt column that gives the driver plenty of room, and the front bench has a split-back for easy access to the rear. The door panels match the seats, the white headliner is taut, and the plush carpets below help insulate the cabin from the outside world. Out back, the trunk is absolutely massive, and even with the relocated battery there's enough room back there for everyone's luggage.

The motor is a very stout 302 cubic inch V8, which looks just right in the old Ford's engine bay, punctuated by a set of finned Ford Racing valve covers and a matching air cleaner. Along with the Edelbrock 4-barrel carb and polished aluminum intake, the engine bay looks closer to what you'd find in a Mustang Pony, and it runs just as strong with good power that hammers down the highway effortlessly thanks to a big cushion of torque. A big aluminum radiator with an electric fan ensures that it stays cool, while modern power brakes and power steering ensure a great ride, every time out. The dual exhaust system features reasonably aggressive glasspack-style mufflers, so this Galaxie has a very pleasant growl that attracts attention without being obnoxious. Floors are solid, the C6 3-speed automatic transmission shifts well, and there's a heavy-duty rear end out back hanging on adjustable air shocks, so it can still carry a load when it has to. Painted steelies adorned with bright chrome hubcaps look right and wear thick whitewall radials that finish the bespoke look of this custom Galaxie 500 perfectly.

A very cool lead-sled that can go anywhere and looks awesome doing it, all for a reasonable price. Call today!
