For the vast majority of its life, this Ford Skyliner has languished in this barn. It has been in the seller’s family since it was new. His mother parked it decades ago and never touched it again. His father started to do some work to it, including having the bumpers restored and even found some spare parts for it, but that was as far as he got. It’s still sitting in the barn but needs to go before it deteriorates any further. You can find this dust covered Galaxie here on craigslist in Berry, Kentucky with an asking price of $5k.
Clearly, its time in this Kentucky barn hasn’t been easy on it. There is some serious rust in the rockers and on the front fender. On the upside, it comes with the front fenders from another car, which should help with restoring it. Hopefully, the underside is solid but you won’t know for sure until you can get it out of the barn.
The seller put together a nice video of the car with more of the story. It’s definitely worth watching.
There’s no word on the condition of the mechanicals. It still has the 332 V8 under the hood, but they don’t say whether it turns over or not. I would assume the worst, but hope for the best. I’m also a bit curious about the condition of the hardtop mechanism and interior.
To really judge the condition, you will have to pull this Ford out of the barn and give it a proper cleaning. With any luck, the rust is contained to just the areas we see in the video. That’s a big if, but you won’t know until you look it over in person. All I know for sure is that these Fords are awesome and this one looks like an interesting find. Being a legitimate one owner barn find is definitely amazing, so hopefully, someone saves it and preserves its story.
