Ford Galaxie/Sunliner/Fairlane 500 market review 2020

Australia’s love affair with very big Fords began in 1959 with the ‘tank’ Fairlane and continued until the 1970s. Lots of these sedans plus imported hardtops, Convertibles and wagons populate the local market and rarely cost more than $30,000.

You just need a garage long enough to accommodate one of these giants. Galaxies that were built here from 1965-72 were popular as official transport and one of these during its early life have transported a Prime Minister. Later, local cars cost $25-30,000 with pre-1965s slightly dearer.

Most expensive of the imports are 1962-64 two-doors which, despite their bulk, were successful competition cars and are still campaigned in British Historic events. Convertible Galaxies and the 1950s Sunliner can be found at $30-70,000.
