This is the Engine availability in the true 1961 Fords. While the 332 was available in the Australian 1961 Fords, it was not even listed in the Sales Brochure of the true 1961 Fords.

They didn't mention the tri power 401 HP 390. That may have been a dealer installed and over the counter thing though. Sal

The 1961 TRI-POWER set and W/4/S were thrown in the trunk (375 HP car) and dealer installed.


FORD USA 332 FE last year usage was the 1959 model run.

Neat recent Import 1961 Ford Two-Door Ranch Wagon in Australia. Nice.
This was the final year for the full size Ford two door station wagons.
If you wanted a Ford two door station wagon in 1962, you could get one in the Compact Ford Falcon range.

I bought one just like that back in the 70's, from a co-worker. Small engine, automatic. I didn't keep it, resold it after a while.

1961 Ford Galaxie Sunliner Convertible. These are great looking old Fords. Why have they been forgotten by the majority of collectors?

Rochesters were the best choice because the manifold is probably an Offenhauser and they had the small carb bolt pattern
