Description for Ford Galaxie 1961

This beautiful Galaxie is an unrestored piece of big Ford history. The body and interior are very original on this 23. 54 original mile 2 door Starliner. with a title showing actual miles. The Garden Turquoise paint does have a few imperfections (a blended spot on the hood and trunk). but as you can see from the photos. it shows very well for 54 year old paint. The Turquoise interior is in near new condition. It features a rare 3-speed Borg Warner column shift with overdrive. which works and functions like it did the day it was new. To add some pep to the car. the 352 cubic inch engine was removed and a dynoed 428 was installed (dyno sheets included). It dynoed at 347 horsepower and 430 lbsft of torque. We topped it of with a correct 61 tri-power intake. carbs. air cleaner and fuel lines. And added correct 61 heads and a solid lifter cam. It has correct “shorty” exhaust manifolds. big pulley generator. and new water pump. We’ve decoded the engine and have a complete list of casting numbers and dates. It has been driven to several car shows. plus a 500 mile scenic tour last summer. It runs like new. The car was purchased in California last year. and has that clean dry look that you would expect from a west coast car. No rust. no bondo. no excessive paint or interior fade. Just clean and dry. Everything works on the car: interior lights. all gauges. exterior lights. radio. etc. It has older radial tires with lots of tread. You won’t believe how much fun you will have driving this car…it is a blast!!! Don’t assume anything! If you have questions or need additional information or photos. please contact us at: 402-289-9310. We encourage you or your representative to personally inspect the car before purchase.
