800 Derita Road, Ste. A
This 1959 Ford Galaxie 500 Sunliner represents an opportunity to get a big, flashy '50s convertible that you just don't see every day. And when you have such a classically presented drop-top that was also built to be a true boulevard cruiser. So it's time to take a closer look at this V8 Ford.
The factory-correct Colonial White was refinished later in life. That means this sunshine-friendly convertible still knows how to radiate in the sunshine. So this one really knows how to show off its well-respected body panels. It has a sophisticated style that is shown best with the full brightwork package. Up front, you have an artful bumper, upgraded half-mirrored headlights, and the grille is wide and full of stars. The full-length trim does a great job of highlighting the straight body panels, and these '59 cars even have a bright trim insert that includes the rear fender skirts. We love how the rear bumper is notched to accommodate those large afterburner-style taillights.
The white convertible top has a crisp and clean look that goes so well with the creamy white paint. But for true distinction, you'll love to power it down and show off the interior. This triple-tone upholstery is both stylish and well-coordinated. The red goes with the wheels, and the white goes with the full exterior point. Plus, the black inserts are great for high traffic areas as they are in the seat middles, armrests, and carpeting. There's plenty of classic style with the complete gauges and artful steering wheel with Ford family crest. Even the AM radio is still there for display. But your real driving music comes from a cleanly installed AM/FM/CD stereo w/aux input under the dash. It makes for a very vintage atmosphere that also gets to have the best driving music.
Tilt the hood forward, and you'll find a smooth-running 332 cubic inch V8. The setup really looks great with the bold red block, matching big air grabber, and shining Ford valve covers. The V8 fires up eagerly with a subtly sweet V8 tune. This is a true classic, and so it wants you to be in touch with the road. But the three-speed automatic transmission, cushy ride, and modern cruising tires make for a solid driving package.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and period-correct documents. This is the large and stylish drop-top Ford that remains a head-turning cruiser. So don't miss this distinct Sunliner. Call now!
