Vehicle Description

1961 FORD GALAXIE STARLINER PRO STREET $54,900 We have up for sale a rare body style Galaxie Starliner. Ford only made the distinctive body style in 1960 & 1961. The car has been transformed into a pro street. Professionally built and done with attention to detail. Maintaining its original long sleek bodylines painted in a mirror smooth black that is miles deep. All the original brightwork is in perfect condition. Original badging/ornaments are in place how it came from the factory. Interior retains its original look without any roll cage. The front and rear bench seats reupholstered in black vinyl, with correct stitching & narrow pleats. New black carpet, headliner, door panels and all factory hardware installed. Dash retains its original look with the upgraded Auto-meter gauges and aftermarket stereo built in. The trunk was not forgotten, professionally modified with the added wheel tubs and fuel cell. Black carpet was custom installed to give a tailored look. When you lift the hood the 514 cubic inch Ford big block fits neatly in the Galaxies massive beautifully black painted engine bay. A 460 block thats been bored and stroked to 514 inches and puts out an estimated 600 horsepower on pump gas. Theres a lumpy cam in there, so its got that race car idle, but it smooths right out at speed and theres thrust available at any engine speed. Theres a massive Holley 4-barrel carburetor up on top of a Weiand high-rise aluminum intake and an MSD ignition system. Its nicely dressed in Ford Blue on the block, a set of polished Ford Motorsports valve covers, and braided stainless to continue the detail. A beefy Griffin aluminum radiator with two electric fans helps keep it cool and a serpentine belt drive for the accessories is a nice upgrade. The custom exhaust system includes long-tube headers and a custom stainless steel exhaust system ending in Supertrapp mufflers (which can be tuned for sound level). No worries its very streetable for such a beast and runs on high-octane pump gas, so no worries about special fuel requirements. The Toploader 4-speed manual shifts crisply with light clutch action, and theres a custom-made driveshaft that goes back to a custom-built 9-inch rear end. 4.11 gears on a Track-Lok limited slip and 31-spline axles ensure that all the power reaches the giant tires. The underside has spotless floors and the beautiful back-half job that neatly bisects the original frame to make room for the oversized tires. Adjustable coil-over shocks and a robust 4-link keep it all under control. Youll be surprised how streetable and comfortable it is on the streetnot a race car. The front suspension is stock, although its been augmented with a set of big disc brakes, lowering springs, and a fat sway bar. A giant 20-gallon fuel cell gives it acceptable cruising range, even with that big block engine, and the plumbing for the fuel system is race-spec throughout. Polished aluminum Centerline wheels with Ford hubs look great and carry 195/65/15 radials up front and those monstrous 15-inch-wide Mickey Thompson Sportsman meats out back. This is a flat-out gorgeous car. When you show up with this Starliner all heads will turn. This is car will consistently put a smile on your face, whether its on the road, on the track, or at a show. Its the kind of car that everyone loves and is welcome wherever it goes. Thats a pretty rare combination. Call today or stop to see the vehicle!
