1959 Ford Fairlane 500 Galaxie
STK 2485 1959 Ford Fairlane 500 Galaxie
The styling of the 1959 Ford is a perfect example of the 'new' look of American Iron in the late 50's - longer, lower, wider and sporting rear fins. It was then, and still is now, a beautiful car. This Fairlane 500 Galaxie two-door hardtop is top-shelf - good looks and solid performance. It received a partial exterior restoration in 2010 and the mechanicals have been thoroughly vetted. (The previous owner has provided a complete summary of restoration parts/labor - over $30K invested.) The body received a 2-stage re-spray of April Green/Colonial White, and paired with the 'Thunderbird' roofline, is stunning. New steel wheels, full hubcaps, 15" Coker American Classic wide-white radials and chrome fender skirts provide perfect accents. The grill and bumpers are also excellent as is most of the strainless trim. The original interior is in overall very good condition. Seats are upholstered in Radiant Green/White vinyl and look quite nice at age 60. All of the individual components are very sharp, including the dashboard, headliner, carpeting and door panels. The Galaxie is powered by the first generation 'FE' (Ford/Edsel) V8 with a displacement of 332ci. According to the VIN number, this car was delivered with the 2V version of this motor. Carolina Machine Engines of Johnston, SC did a complete rebuild in 2010. Based on the casting number on the block, B9AE015B, we believe that this is still the original engine. This number is unique to the 1959 Ford 332ci motor. During the rebuild process, the intake was converted to a Ford 4V and an Edelbrock 600cfm carburetor was installed. Behind the FE, the three-speed automatic transmission delivers torque to the stock rear differential with 2.91:1 gearing. Power drum brakes are now fitted with a dual master cylinder. This Fairlane 500 Galaxie needs a new Blue Oval fan to pamper it - one who will appreciate the beautiful style of this full-size classic. ALL VEHICLES SOLD "AS IS".
