Ford Galaxie/Sunliner/Fairlane 500 1957-74

An interesting mix here of locally-built and full-import 1950s-70s Fords with fairly consistent pricing across a range of years and shapes.

Four-door Fairlanes will usually be the local ‘Tank’ version built right-hand drive and with 5.8 or 6.3-litre V8 engines.

Later 1965-73 cars in good condition cost around $20,000, with 1962-64 models including massive station wagons up to 50 per cent more.

The 1961-64 two-door Galaxie hardtops found fame in various motor sporting arenas and even without 427 cubic-inch engines they can still bring $50,000+.

The market occasionally unearths late-1960s Galaxie Hardtops at $25-30,000 or ‘big block versions at $40,000+. Sunliner convertibles came in a couple of body-styles and restored pre-1959 cars cost $50-60,000.
