1961 Ford Galaxie Sunliner Convertible showing 42,158 miles offered by Gas Monkey Garage with a Buy It Now or Best Offer price! This means you can hit the Buy It Now button and own this sweet piece or take your chances and submit you best offer!
The Ford Galaxie name was used for the top models in Ford's full-size range from 1958 until 1961, in a marketing attempt to appeal to the excitement surrounding the Space Race.

This is a nice “driver” quality example of the second generation Galaxie. You've seen me build these into a kick ass 6 figure Street Rod on the show, and while there are plenty of really nice $30,000-$40,000 examples out there, there aren't enough nice “drivers” out there to be had, so I'm offering this to you like I found it, running & driving and waiting for your touch.

The exterior shows well enough with an older respray that is showing it's age now. The trim and chrome are complete and in good condition showing well too.

The interior is good condition with what looks like some newer interior components mixed in with some original items as well. All of the glass is in good condition and all 4 windows operate smoothly along with the dash mounted power top controls.

Under hood photos reveal the 352 CID V8 and 2 speed Ford-O-Matic transmission that have been maintained throughout the years

Underside pics reveal the fairly solid chassis with minimal superficial rust present on most components (see all pics please).

While this is a nice example of the 1961 Ford Galaxie Sunliner Convertible, it's not perfect. There are a few nicks and chips in the paint along with a few whiskey dents and the older respray has some issues with “crazing” & “pitting”. The convertible top is worn & torn , but usable as shown (see all100+ pics).These would be easy repairs if you want to address these items once you get it. The Genuine Sears Dynaglass tires should be replaced, as they are surely out of date now!

While this rare Galaxie Sunliner does run and drive, it should be completely inspected and service before any extended driving to ensure safety and reliability (due to our filming schedule we cannot perform any additional work on this car or build it for you).SOLD AS IS/WHERE IS. The winning bidder may come to the shop to pick it up, or have it shipped.

If you're looking for the iconic convertible from the 60's, you won't find a better example that's priced to sell! This would be perfect for Cruise Night, Advertising and Promotional use or as a kick ass addition to your collection, you decide!
