About This 1961 Ford Galaxie

Posted: 17 Mar 2010

Aptly described as a Founding Father of the muscle car movement, this Ford Galaxie Starliner is powered by a high-performance 390 tri-carb V8. In bright red with red accented wheels, this car turns heads.

From Seller:

This car received a cost-no-object restoration. It was COMPLETELY disassembled, and EVERY part refurbished to as-new or better standards...or replaced (the last seven images below show some of the critical stages of restoration). The restoration began on a car that had been owned by the same gentleman since 1969. This man 'knew he had something rare' and held on to it. How many 1961 Galaxie Starliners could have been built with the High-Performance Triple-carb 390 but without a radio! This classic is one of the true 'founding fathers' of the muscle-car movement. My client is the very serious collector who undertook the restoration. To tackle this immense job, he hired one of best painter/restorers I have ever had the pleasure to meet (and he is available for questions about ANY aspect of the restoration). The car is believed to have been 100% original when it was obtained from the owner who had it since 1969 and the ONLY modification made during restoration was the movement of the shifter from the column to the floor. This change was considered highly desirable for obvious operational reasons, but it was also deemed appropriate because Ford recognized the need for a floor shifter shortly after the car's introduction and began offering a 4-speed Borg-Warner unit...which is exactly what was added when the restoration was underway. This engine - combined with the handsome wind-cheating Starliner roof-line which was created to enhance racetrack performance - makes this one of the most historically important Ford performance cars ever built. It was for this reason that so much attention to detail was lavished on this car. I have been to Concours d'Elegance events with cars valued at $1 million and more, but none have impressed me more in fit and finish than this extraordinary Starliner. Of course, we have not seen every Starliner in the world, but it would be very hard to imagine a nicer one. The car is equipped with the famed Holman Moody 'competition proven camshaft' too! I could go on and on on the gorgeous car...but pictures really are worth a thousand words so please examine every one as the best testimony to the extreme care that went into bringing this rare beauty back to its original glory. Only a 'handful' of test miles have been put on the car since restoration.
