This early-produciton ’59 Ford Galaxie Sunliner Convertible is a nice and enjoyable driver-quality example with a recent repaint that was completed under the late prior owner. According to VIN decoding, this Galaxie is confirmed to have been factory-equipped when new with its powerful 300 hp, “Thunderbird 352 Special" V-8 engine, equipped with a factory-correct Holley four-barrel carburetor. Other desirable original features inclued a Cruise-O-Matic automatic transmission and a highway-friendly 2.69:1 rear-axle ratio.
Other features include power steering, dual spotlights with side-view mirrors, a radio, and a clock. Mechanical upgrades for enhanced reliability while cruising include a re-cored radiator (2010), an auxiliary electric cooling fan, and an electric auxiliary fuel pump.
|The interior features period correct "tri-tone" upholstery that remains tidy and very presentable.|
|The engine bay, while not detailed, is honestly and correctly presented in driver quality, with the correct chrome-plated air cleaner, Ford-scripted valve covers, and bag-type windshield-washer fluid reservoir.|
Currently road-licenced, this nice ’59 Galaxie Sunliner Convertible is well maintained and is reported by the current owner to drive and run very well. It will be offered for sale soon on Saturday October 22, 2011 at the Toronto Fall Classic Car Auction presented by Dan Spendick’s Collector Car Productions.
