For Sale: 1959 Ford Galaxie in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

We know why you're checking out this 1959 Ford Galaxie Skyliner. It's not just that this is a chrome-laden American classic in an ideal art deco color combo. It's also that you're transfixed on that ultra-cool electronic stow-away hard top that will make you a hit at plenty of car shows and cruise-ins to come. So it's awesome to find such a well-restored and well-presented example like this.


This classic is presented in its factory-correct two-tone Wedgewood Blue and Colonial White. This is a high-quality modern respray that makes sure this stays as vivid as your nostalgia. So this is the ideal 1950s color combo that makes cruising down any Main Street feel like a drive down memory lane. But more than just the color, this Skyliner would not be half as attractive if all of the brightwork was not this complete. The extra wide front bumper frames the grille that looks like a starry night; the sweeping side trim makes for an ideal two-tone separation and highlights the straightness of the body; the rear fender skirts even join the brightwork; and the rear bumper helps cradle the tail lights that were inspired by the jet age. Oh yes, this is an impressive and award-worthy presentation. Of course, the retractable hardtop roof is the real reason why this is such a valued classic. It was the engineering sensation of its time, as multiple motors make it look like the trunk is swallowing the roof whole. There's nothing cooler at a car show than when one of these is stopped halfway up so we can all be in awe of this American marvel.


With the roof down, everyone can see the blue and white theme continued on the interior. Just like the exterior, there have been solid investments inside to keep this looking quite stock but feeling far fresher. For example, the seats have been reupholstered, but that intricate style with the two-tone and comfy cloth inserts is pure 1950s flair. Everything from the texture of the door panels to the Ford family crest in the center of the steering wheel has that awesome classic feeling. Even the AM radio is still working! Just like today's hardtop convertibles, having the roof down doesn't mean losing your entire trunk. There is still luggage space in the neat little cave that the stowed hardtop creates, and this even still has the correct box to show you where your cargo goes. It's this level of detail that will draw praise from even fickle Ford fans.


Underneath the sporty forward-tilt hood is the correct H-code 352 cubic-inch V8. It has that great period-correct appearance with the big Thunderbird Special air grabber on top, and it matches the FORD logo valve covers. The radiator, wires, master cylinder, and so much more has a clean well-presented look that tells you this one has been under the right maintenance. It translates to smooth performance and plenty of torque to move the big coupe/convertible without working very hard. This one also has some great driving features such as power steering, three-speed automatic transmission, power brakes, and upgraded front discs. There's even a modern tread behind the classic whitewalls. So you know this impressive classic was made for cruising.


Ford only offered this retractable hardtop option from 1957 to 1959, and these final-year cars are the rarest and most refined. Beyond that, you know this one is a cut above with its impressive presentation. This is the complete American classic stunner you've always wanted. Call today!!!
