1959 Ford Galaxie 500 Fairlane Skyliner Retractable Red White Runs Great! Act Mi on 2040-cars
Warsaw, Indiana, United States
Very straight 1959 Ford Galaxie 500 Fairlane Skyliner retractable convertible hard-top. Classic red/white and red/white/black interior. Nearly all original, under the hood, inside and outside. Great running, powerful 332 V8 with recent oil change and smooth-shifting automatic transmission. Carb just cleaned.
Solenoids for top work, but the top system does need some tinkering to get it completely smoothed out.
ACTUAL MILEAGE on title- 55,000 miles (as seen in picture). This is a great rare car and a real head-turner.
Grandpa transferred this car to us a year ago, and we have not been able to drive it much. Someone will be able to love and drive it more than us, and we would like to see someone give her a new home that will appreciate her.
All trim pieces seen missing in pictures are in hand and come with the car. Also included is a full size repair manual. In all, nothing is missing for this car- all complete.
Rims and tires are new, original rims with tires are included.
Pick up only in Warsaw Indiana.
Feel free to ask any questions you have before bidding.
Thank you for looking and Happy Bidding!

The 2015 Ford Mustang sounds great so far - at least on paper. Ford has just announced specs for the latest version of the iconic pony car in Dearborn, telling Autoblog that it will pump out as much as 435 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque from its 5.0-liter V8.

Those gaudy figures power the naturally aspirated GT model, and they easily eclipse the "more than" 420 hp and 390 lb-ft that Ford originally estimated.
The 2.3-liter turbocharged EcoBoost four-cylinder makes 310 hp and 320 lb-ft, and it's the first turbo Mustang since the 1986 SVO.
Comedian Jay Leno is changing gears from driving fast cars to checking out some of the police cruisers that regularly chase down and dish out punishment to those fast cars. In this episode of Jay Leno's Garage, we get the lowdown on the modifications made to the Ford Explorer for the Interceptor package (which looks pretty tough in its California Highway Patrol livery).

The new Ford is cool, but cooler still are the pack of classic CHP cars that Jay has along for the episode. A 1982 Mustang, 1966 Dodge Polara, 1970 Mercury Monterey and 2000 Crown Victoria are all in the shop. Better still, Jay lays out an argument for ones of the classic cruisers as the best cop car of all time. Get your guesses in now, and then scroll down to watch and learn.
Ford's Fusion and Fusion Hybrid have both received the highest five-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The rating is a big upgrade for the Fusion, which was completely redesigned for 2013. The previous model fell one star short of the top rating, after scoring only three stars in the frontal crash test and four stars in the side crash test and rollover evaluations. The 2013 Fusion received four stars in side crash and rollover testing and a full five stars in the front crash test.
Test results for the 2013 Fusion and Fusion Hybrid were greatly improved at least in part due to Ford's Personal Safety System. The system utilizes smarter sensors to gather crash data and tailor the car's restraint systems to the occupants. Seatbelt usage and seat position are taken into account to ensure airbags deploy with less pressure for smaller drivers, more for larger drivers.
The 2013 Fusion twins also received the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Top Safety Pick+ designation. Read the official press release below.
