1961 Ford Galaxie Cutom RestomodVehicle Overview 1961 Ford Galaxie Starliner
Stunningly stoic in its presence, you must admit there is nothing quite like the look of an early 60's Ford Muscle Car with its stuck up stance, snorting at you with a "428 Cubic Inch Cobra Jet Engine". An American rocket glistening in the sun, waxed up, topped off and ready to go...
This FORD STARLINER has been fully restored with a mind-blowing TANGERINE ORANGE exterior color and a contrasting BLACK BUCKET SEAT, CENTER CONSOLE INTERIOR
A car so iconic, so stunning, so outside the box, that the International Fashion Authority, 'Centro per L'Alta Moda Italiana', gave it an award for "Functional Expression of Classic Beauty"!
This absolutely gorgeous 1961 Starliner is equipped with a Big Block 428 cubic inch engine topped off by 3 Demon 2 bbl Carburetors ("Six-Shooter") and a Ford Top Loading 4 speed Transmission. Of course there is the 3:25 Tru Trac Positraction rear end!
A full restoration was completed last year. The expression is way over used, but it truly needs to be "seen in person" to be appreciated. Pictures just don't do the car or finish justice. Simply gorgeous!! No rust bubbles, scratches, dirt, dings, or issues.
The undercarriage is extremely clean, very solid, straight, and rust free. During the restoration, it was cleaned and then painted black. There are no shoddy patch panels, holes, soft spots, or issues. The trunk area is also very solid, carpeted and looks great. The car rides, drives, and handles like a dream: Straight and smooth down the road with no shimmies, shakes, or vibrations. She's extremely tight and surprisingly easy to drive with manual brakes (Front Discs) and Power Steering.
A beautiful new Interior was installed, complete with seat covers, foam, bolsters, headliner, carpet, door panels, weather strips, rubber, etc, and is exceptional.
All of the lights, turn signals, brakes, gauges, windows, etc are functioning properly. Another story for the Factory Radio and Clock--they are present-the clock works when it wants to and the radio lacks an antennae. You will notice the SUN TACH mounted on the steering column.
At time of restoration, every ounce of this car was addressed. All chrome, stainless, and trim was either re-done or replaced. Same for the mechanicals such as brakes, shocks, fuel tank, sending unit, wiring, etc.
Unfortunately, the original wheels are long gone. In their place are 'Billet Specialties' High Polished Aluminum Wheels. The car rides on relatively new 225xZR17's in the Front and 295xZR17's in the Rear.
The 1961 FORD STARLINER has to be one of the FINEST examples in existence. Please contact us with any questions or offers. Thank you!
