1961 Ford Galaxie
The car is in excellent condition and very rare, at least in the UK. The exterior is black and chrome. The interior is part leather, red and white tuck and roll upholstery. The dealer supplied seat protectors are still on the car 48 years later!
It recently took home the award for Best in Show at the Rhythm Riot Car Cruise. Nov 2011.
Seats up to 5 passengers, 3 in the back, 2 in the front on the original bench seats. There are no seat belts in this car.
It has a Ford big block 352 cubic inch engine (approx 5.8 Litres) fitted with a Holley 600 cfm 4 barrel carburettor. It produces approx 300 bhp and sounds fantastic!
Imported into the UK 3 years ago it spent its early years in the dry state of Arizona and was in storage for nearly 20 years hence its fantastic condition today.
It is very reliable and maintained regardless of expense.
If you want to make an entrance than what better way than with the rumble of a big block V8 engine preceding you?
