In the early 1960s; automotive designers were looking away from the showy design of the ’50s and focusing on designs that were minimalist in style but still striking in character. Focused on providing a car with that was both functional and beautiful; the Ford Galaxie met the challenge. The 1961 Galaxie almost totally lost the tail fins of its predecessor; maintaining only small blade-like fins that served as the cap of the significant round ‘pie plate’ tail lamps. The interior was sleek and offered options that allowed buyers to step into luxury. Performance was something Ford began to tout with the ’60s Galaxie; offering several engine options pushing significant horsepower.
This 1961 Galaxie Sunliner is a true work of art and spent much of its life in an automotive museum. Previously identified as embodying a ‘functional expression of classic beauty’; this car is the entire package. Having undergone an extensive restoration; the Monte Carlo Red exterior is paired perfectly with the red leather interior. Power black convertible top; chrome wire wheels; wide whitewall tires; stainless fender skirts; dual exhaust and gorgeous continental kit round out the beauty of the exterior. The 352 cubic inch V8 is seamlessly paired to a Cruise-O-Matic automatic transmission; dismissing the size of this vehicle when pushing the gas. This Sunliner is undoubtedly one of the finest presentations of a Galaxie available today.
