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. So don't miss an awesome full-size Ford drop-top. Call today!!!
