While the chassis and drivetrain of 1960 Fords remained largely the same as the year before, the bodies were all new and beautifully modern, with twin headlights riding in a scalloped front clip, unique half-moon–shaped taillights, and smaller curving tailfins. This would be the only year for this styling. A minor “first” was the introduction of a fuel filler door in the center of the rear valance, something that would be subsequently copied by several of Ford’s competitors. A rare surviving example of the 1960 Galaxie Sunliner, The Shrine of the Holy Grille’s example is an older restoration in its original color, Corinthian White, and equipped as when new with the 220-hp Interceptor 352 V-8 and Ford-O-Matic transmission.
