Texas Classic Cars Of Dallas is happy to showcase this nice and rare 1961 Ford Galaxie Sunliner.Rarely does one see a sleek and stylish 1961 Ford Galaxie Sunliner, his is the kind of ride you wished you had in 1961. Instead of an economical inline six, nder the hood reveals it has a top option 390 4V HI PERFM ENGINE V8. Mated to a ford Cruis-O-Matic transmission that shifts though gears well. The 390 High Performance had 10.6:1 compression ratio and developed 375 horsepower and 427 foot-pounds of torque with a single four-barrel carburetor. The addition of Ford’s 3 x 2 Tri-Power carburetors increased the horsepower rating to 401, n almost unheard-of figure in those days. This ’61 comes with Ford’s factory-developed row of three two-barrel carburetors, luminum intake manifold and the elongated oval air cleaner that became so popular on a variety of Ford engines in the 1960's.
And today, e have one for sale that is ready to hit the road! After years of being virtually overlooked, hese stylish full-size Fords have developed a strong following which is built around a devout appreciation for their performance and a deep respect for their innovation. If you’re a blood red fan who enjoys big time muscle, arefree open air cruising and plenty of room to stretch out, his prized drop top is your kind of car! A sporty version of Ford’s well-known Galaxie, he jet age Sunliner kicked off its long legacy with a prestigious award from the International Fashion Authority that applauded its “functional expression of classic beauty”. And in typical 60s Detroit fashion, ith long panels and creases that stretch from front to back, hese cars are incredibly hard to make straight if they’ve been reworked or damaged. However, n this Sunline, nothing but good care and accident free car keeps these great lines straight as an arrow.
Still the older cosmetic restoration of this car wasn’t a just quickie re-spray, great deal of effortwent into the car to create a true classic which looks good both on the road and the show field. The car’s doors operate with precision, ts hood and trunk are centered in their respective openings, nd naturally, ts weather stripping is fresh and pliable. On top of that straight body, modern two stage coat of Ford Monte Carlo Red paint creates a deep and glossy finish that acrylic lacquer and enamels from 1961 just can’t touch. And thanks to our hard working detail crew, very panel is fresh out of a thorough polish which makes the car look great. It features a rare color combo Monte Carlo Red exterior and factory 2 tone white on red interior, nd new carpet was installed during the restoration. Floors, runk pan and quarters are super solid, o patch panels all original steel in very good conditio, owered convertible top with zip down back window, ully working gauges, riginal AM radio, riginal clock, ights(low and high beam), linkers, ear tail lights, everse lights, ipers, riginal heater. All glass and stainless is in excellent condition. Paint is just as good as show quality with little wear. Comes with jack, pare tire, nd original style trunk liner as you see in the pictures. Car runs and drives very well. Always turns heads and draws crowds wherever it goes.
The scalloped hood was gone for 1961, s the sheet metal was revised for a cleaner look. This time, he tail fins were almost gone; replacing them, wo giant circular taillights at each rear corner, lowing like an afterburner. Ford was definitely going with the space and science-fiction theme, nd with successful results; this style of Galaxie is widely regarded as a classic. A new 390 CID (6.4 L) FE V8 was added with a claimed 401 hp (298 kW) gross output in triple-two-barrel carburetor form. A trunk release button was optional.
The 1961 Galaxie was a beautifully sculptured new design.
