1961 Ford Galaxie

1961 Ford Galaxie For those of you who used their formative years to educate and mostly entertain themselves with the boob tube, you were probably catching an episode or two of Andy of Mayberry. A number of awesome cars were featured in the Andy Griffith Show over its nine year run, but Griffith's squad cars were always Ford Galaxie 500 sedans. Fords were increasingly featured as the show reached its later years, undoubtedly because of a sponsorship from the Ford Motor Company. For consignment, a 1961 Galaxie that has some extra power with now a 390ci V8, Holley carb and a fiberglass teardrop hood. Sporting a very nice clean interior and engine bay, we can now usher in the jet age design era, and usher out the fin era, although it still has small fins. Exterior White covers straight steel panels, the fiberglass teardrop hood and good gaps. Dual front headlights reside within a well-preserved egg crate grille that is classy and Caddy-esque with round discs at each intersection of the vertical and horizontal ribs. The front bumper is very nice. Paint is shiny and deep and is highlighted by an upper trim spear that works its way from the front quarter just aft of the wheel well ending on the rear quarter rear where it meets up with a stainless steel shiny horizontal ribbed panel covering the entire lower part of the rear quarter. As we move to the rear, round jet engine style taillights have beautiful bezels and the center and form a circle around a backup light. More polished stainless steel on the rear below the trunk, using the disc motif, and just below is a nicely preserved rear bumper. Not to be forgotten is a metal hardtop in white and with windows in the down position, it appears that the roofline goes on forever! 15-inch chrome Cragar SS wheels are on all 4 corners. Interior A swing of the doors reveals several black vinyl covered surfaces, all original and all in very good condition. Door panels use tuck and roll vertical panels surrounded by smooth black, where shiny cranks and the door actuator along with an armrest reside. Low back curved bomber styled buckets are up front and use tuck and roll for the inserts and smooth bolsters, all in black vinyl. These buckets sit within chromed tubs which are well preserved. The rear bench copies this style. The original dash is noted and utilizes a dual spear design for the instruments and clock. This instrument cluster has a spaceship styling to it, and we see an original radio in the center. Below is a band of wood applique to add some highlight to the black metal dash front, and just below is a trio of aftermarket gauges hanging and showing vitals. Black carpet floods the floors and sitting proudly on the hump within reach of the driver is a B&M floor shifter which was totally unexpected. A nice tight headliner, looking mostly original, is above all the passenger compartment. Bringing out attention briefly to the trunk it has a checked vinyl liner and a spare and jack neatly tucked away in the front of the trunk. Drivetrain All aboard for the under the hood presentation which now features a 390ci V8 topped by a Holley 4-barrel carburetor and going through an aluminum intake. Our consignor states that this engine has a sporty cam installed. On back is a newer C6 3-speed automatic transmission with a Ford 9-inch posi rear. A nicer presentation with its blue block and ribbed Cobra valve coverings along with the pristine headers. Undercarriage Not even a spot of surface rust for the usual suspects or for that matter anything else. The car maintains structural integrity with rust free frame, rockers and floor pans. Independent coil springs for the front, and leaf springs and traction bars for the rear suspension, as well as drum brakes are all around. The headers come downward from the engine and turn into a Flowmaster dual 3-inch exhaust which works its way to exit just behind the rear wheels. Drive-Ability As expected from a car in this condition, she fired right up, and with a lifting of my foot off the brake and the shifter to D it took off smoothly. This car is a great large cruiser, smooth ride, and no creaking or squeaking when turning the corners. Plenty of power and also interior room abounds under that long luxurious roof. All buttoned up and ready to turn the key and have some excitement come your way and down the highway. A fully restored nice example the was obtained in a trade for this consignor, and who has not driven it too much, but each ride was very enjoyable as was my test ride.
