Classic Car Overview
1959 Ford Galaxie $14,900
In 1959, the party was still in full swing in Detroit, with automakers using bigger, wider, flashier designs trying to top one another and their own previous efforts. The 1959 Ford is a notable exception, using a restrained and downright clean shape for the full-sized Galaxie. You can find hints of the Thunderbird in the roofline, and somehow Ford avoided the tailfin craziness that was running rampant over at General Motors.
Finished in Tahitian bronze poly with a colonial white top and accents, there are few more appropriate color combinations on a big 50s cruiser than this. The bodywork is very good, and the way the doors on cars of this era open and close is impressive. There is plenty of chrome, and getting it into the condition it is in today was costly, including the massive front bumper, intricate grille, as well as the wrap-around rear bumper. Brushed aluminum trim behind the rear wheels was a common addition of the period. If you went for a trip back to the 50s, few cars can do it better than this Galaxie. Wearing the original style woven inserts and matching two-tone vinyl, the 50s are alive and well inside this Galaxie. The original gauges remain, along with the factory original AM radio. The door panels appear to be original and in excellent condition, which is a good thing. And if road trips are your fancy, then the massive trunk will carry everything you need for weeks of cruising. Fords 292 cubic inch 200 horsepower V8 supplies full-sized power that is smooth and effortless. The original air cleaner remains in place, and has been painted bright red to match the Ford-logo valve covers. The engine fires up easily and runs with that silky smoothness that only engines from the 50s seem to possess. And yes, that is a rare 2-speed Ford-O-Matic transmission setup. This is a cool old Ford with a few tricks up its sleeve and it has been set up for cruising.

From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.
