Description for Ford Galaxie 1961

When you arrive anywhere in this car you will be the center of attention. This black beauty has had over 135K spent to bring it to this level of looks and performance. Only the best of everything was used for this build. You will never see another one like it! From the mile deep black paint to the bright red leather, this car draws admirers like flies to honey.

You can see by the photos how beautful the black paint is. The chrome, glass, and stainless are all good. The door handle buttons are slightly pitted and I can't find the buttons, but I'll include a new set of chrome handles. This car has never had any rust anywhere. When the car was prepped for paint there was no repair work necessary on any of the body panels.
I'm sure you've heard the expression "Not for the Faint of Heart". Well, this car is just that. I've never had the car on a track but I assure you it is FAST and QUICK. The six speed transmission allows you to cruise at any highway speed comfortably. I'm selling the car only because of a bum left knee that makes shifting through the gears very painful for me. I'm finishing another Pro-Touring car with an automatic transmission to take the Starliner's place. I will miss this one very much, but I've only got so much room for my cars.
I will look at purchase offers for the car, but I'm not desperate to sell, so your offer should be serious and realistic.
Georgia does not issue titles for vehicles this old, so the car will be sold with a current state registration and bill of sale. Payment will be by a wire transfer to my account, cashiers check that has cleared my bank, or cash in person. If you decide to ship the car I will work with your shipper and you'll incur the shipping charges.
