Galaxie Fairlane 500 Sunliner Convertible
Older restoration that shows well! Equipped with 352 cubic inch Thunderbird Special V8 * automatic transmission * Factory power steering ---------- In an age where brand aesthetics can easily hang around for a decade, it's hard to imagine any automaker turning out jaw-dropping but completely different designs for five years in a row. But, between 1955 and 1960, Ford did just that and, over time, each model has become an exalted classic. The 1959 Galaxie is one of the most sought after cars of its era, with examples like this professionally restored sunliner serving as great reminders why. There's simply NOTHING like it on today's roads, and that's without factoring the car's 352 cubic inch Thunderbird Special V8, 2-speed automatic transmission or striking white-on-blue color combination that's guaranteed to turn heads. So, if you're the kind of enthusiast who enjoys being the center of attention, take a minute to get to know this incredible Ford convertible! BODYWORK/TRIM Driven mere shakedown miles since completion and presenting much better than when it originally rolled down San Jose's storied assembly lines, this impressive drop-top has been transformed into a take-no-prisoners weekender that consistently headlines cruise nights. You won't be staying under the radar with its professionally finished Colonial White paintwork, which has been carefully applied over a very clean body. There are no obvious signs of wholesale panel replacement, suggesting the car has been a straight, rust-free shell its entire life. That shell's fit and finish is almost good enough to turn reflections into reality. And ultimately, everything adds up to one super cool cruiser that, thanks to its spectacular combination of color and trim, has an absolutely magnetic presence! ENGINE Tilt this Ford's sculpted hood and you'll find an era-correct, 352 cubic inch Thunderbird Special V8 that's fully rebuiltat time of restoration and dressed to impress. Introduced in 1958 as a high-end Ford and Mercury staple, this stout big block remained one of Dearborn's hottest factory options for many years. At the top of the Jet Black mill, a bright blue air cleaner draws wind in to a big 4-barrel carburetor that's juiced by a series of stainless fuel lines. Atomized octane passes through a cast iron intake manifold to correct, cast iron heads that are topped by painted and Ford-branded valve covers. At the front of those valve covers, a correct fan. Spark comes courtesy of a traditional points distributor, which sequences fire between a Ford coil and fresh plug wires. Aesthetically, this convertible's bay presents a clean, mostly authentic appearance. And best of all, the 300 horsepower engine fires instantly. Ready to enjoy!
