This 1959 Ford Galaxie Retractable features the 332 CI 2 Barrel engine, 3 speed automatic transmission and has been elderly adult owned. It runs well and has been extremely well cared for. This Retractable has been over- maintained and is in outstanding condition. The interior is beautiful, the exterior is rust free, and the wheels are in superb shape.
In addition, the Skyliner had an extensive restoration 40-50 years ago but has been driven. Anything that ever went wrong with this vehicle was fixed right, including regular oil and fluid changes. Everything we tested works including the horn and the clock is intermittent.
Given the ultra low mileage, condition of the interior, engine, transmission and body, it is hard to find anything cleaner than this. We were impressed with how well the engine starts, runs and idles and how well it shifts and drives.

The paint is outstanding and we believe the original color combination. There are very minor marks, chips and touch ups on the body but it is the nicest we have seen over the years. The stain is fuel and will probably buff out easily. We did not see it until we were looking at the photos. The top has two buttons instead of one added years ago. With the two buttons, it goes up and down with ease as shown.

If you are looking for a new car, no squeaks or rattles, or the reliability of a Toyota Camry, this car is not for you. If you like a bit of patina, understand what you are buying and that this is for parades and trails and are a vintage Ford enthusiast like us, this vehicle deserves a closer look. We ask that bidders know what they are buying.
