Car History

The Ford Starliner was a fastback version of in Galaxie line of full-size Fords in 1961. It utilized the high-level Galaxie trim, however the Galaxie name on the trunk lid was replaced by Starliner script.

The 1961 Ford Galaxie Starliner that we have for sale here at Adventure Classics, has the thin roof pillars, fastback styling and slippery aerodynamics that made a suitable platform for NASCAR teams to build their race cars. They were produced in limited numbers and due to their racing applications few survivors like ours exist today.

Our 1961 has had a Full Custom Restoration of the entire car from its exterior and interior and including the underside too.

Engine & Drivetrain

Ford launched its Total Performance program in 1961 with this Galaxie with the Z-Code (our Vin #1N53Z139930, 390 cubic inch V8 engine under the hood. That was a pretty hot setup in 1961, but ours is even hotter with the addition of the Holley Tri-Power carb setup which sits on top of our engine.

It also features an aluminum intake, performance spark plug wires, aluminum finned vale covers and Tri-Power open air cleaner, factory cast iron exhaust and dual exhaust system, air conditioning, automatic transmission, and all sitting in a very nice, clean and detailed engine compartment, with even the red FOMOCO windshield washer fluid bag on the passenger inner fender.

Interior

Our Ford has had a full custom leather interior conversion including leather compartments in the trunk, Custom Suede Headliners, and a Custom Center Console. The new brown/black interior is all custom but trimmed in factory fashion with twin bucket seats, matching rear seat, door panels, factory three-spoke steering wheel, and dash-mounted factory gauges.

The dash is painted in black and has great stainless, column mounted shifter, and a great Kenwood Stereo Radio System that is mounted in the center console too. Even the headliner and the trunk area is super neat and shows well.

It also has power windows that are very unique because they work with the old cranks to keep the appearance factory stock and heritage of the car.

Exterior

The Starliner's unmistakable pillarless fastback silhouette and signature Ford styling remain intact and beautifully finished in black with the correct chrome and bright metal adornments like the 390 engine badges that distinguish our Galaxie as having that engine.

The chrome bumpers with the black and chrome grill make for a great appearance and the car's low stance and BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires on custom 5-spoke mag wheels give it as great stance.

All body panels line up and doors are straight and true and the chassis underneath is completely refinished and has no rust.

Conclusion

This 1961 Ford Galaxie Starliner that we have for sale here at Adventure Classics has a complete complete restoration and has been built right, carries a great Ford muscle car heritage, and is a fantastic driver that won't disappoint you.
