1959 Ford Fairlane Galaxie Additional Info:

Judged one of the best in the country. It was honored with the Showcase award by the International Ford Retractable Club. That means it scored at least 900 points. I was told the judges are extremely critical and the car needs to be completely factory correct. Only 200 miles since restored. I bought it from a collector in Nebraska. He restored and owned a 57, 58 and this 59. I tracked down the president of the IFRC Nebraska chapter. He... is very familiar with this car and spoke very highly of it. EXTERIOR: It's truly incredible. The fit and finish of the exterior of this car is outstanding. The body is laser straight, the panel's all fit superbly. The paint is laid out like glass. I've been around the entire car and truly did not see a flaw. Jambs are pristine, weatherstrips, sill plates and window seals were replaced. The chrome and trim is out of this world. All of the chrome is done to a show quality, high standard. The stainless trim is straightened and polished like chrome. Even the often overlooked pieces were redone: window frames, gold emblems etc. It has all new tinted glass. Some of the features include dual mirrors, stainless steel skirts, reverse lights, exhaust deflectors, bumper tips, flying eclipse hood ornament, fender decorations, rocker trim. It has the exact reproduction white wall tires that should be on the car. The pristine hubcaps are have the optional red white and blue centers. The top is functioning like new, it was recently serviced. INTERIOR: I'm having a hard time putting into words just how nice this car is, the interior is no exception. The seats feel brand new, they've been completely rebuilt and cushioned. Has power seat. Has the correct tri color reproduction upholstery with the chrome piping. The door panels are the correct reproduction with the chrome foil trim. The dash area is gorgeous. Has the optional dash pad that fits perfectly. All the metal is painted glass finish. The instruments, knobs, lenses, radio, clock etc look brand new. Has Town and Country radio, clock. Has the factory air conditioning unit down below the dash. Above, the headliner is pristine, visors were replaced. ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Has it's original 332 motor that's been rebuilt. The engine compartment looks like it just rolled off the assembly line. Every component is restored, rebuilt and refinished. It features power steering and brakes. It has factory air conditioning that works! I assumed it did not work. I tried it for kicks and was very pleasantly surprised to hear the compressor kick on and feel cold air. TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Guess what? It is absolutely pristine in here too. All the yellow metal is painted meticulously. Has the complete white and gray plaid liner kit that's still pristine. The storage tub in the middle is painted. Any gaskets, rubber hoses, motors for the retractable top all look brand new. UNDERSIDE: The body was off the frame. The entire chassis was restored. Suspension and steering were rebuilt. Brakes, brake lines were replaced. Exhaust was replaced. Fuel tank, sending unit and lines were replaced. Chassis is semi gloss black. Floors are solid with a thin undercoat. Bottom of the motor and the transmission look spotless. I know I've repeatedly said how nice this car is. I even tell my staff over and over how nice it is. Fit, finish and function is awesome. I was given an application to the IFRC to give to the new owner they welcome you and this car!
