Ford Galaxie convertibles were made from 1959 to 1972. The Galaxie convertible is now considered a "collector car." Galaxie convertibles in restorable condition are still affordable, parts specialists can supply replacement parts and the fully restored Ford Galaxie convertible is an elegant classic.
Full Convertible Top Packages
Convertible top restoration generally requires the two part top (the main convertible top and the rear window), top hold down cables, convertible top pads and possibly new tacking strips (which take the staples or tacks that fix the new convertible top to the frame.)

Two Part Tops: Can I Install Ford Galaxie Top Myself?
We offer a profusely illustrated convertible top manual, now in its fourth edition. This covers, in detail, all the steps for do-it-yourself convertible top installation. In particular, the manual applies to these cars which all have a two part convertible top. Owners may purchase the manual to review it before purchasing a convertible top package. We would then pro-rate future purchase of the convertible top when it is ordered.
If you can use an air compressor driven staple gun, and are patient and methodical, you are very likely to be able to install any of these convertible tops. The convertible top packages include everything needed in most cases. (Convertible top frame seals must be ordered separately if required.)
Note that there is no sewing involved in installing a two part convertible top. There is stapling and there is manipulation of the top fabric which in places is applied with contact cement. Our convertible top packages include stainless steel staples and the very best grade of contact cement with brush. Please click the link to your convertible top page for more information.
Secure Online Ordering:
We have been servicing convertible top restorers since 1975. Quality and service are a custom here and this applies to our convertible top web site. You will find a wealth of information on tops, your own Galaxie convertible top and advice. We suggest you read our information to help you make an intelligent selection.
We now stock hydraulic cylinders, motor-pumps, and hoses for your convertible tops. All are made to OEM specifications. Each can be ordered separately; however, when ordering hydraulic cylinders we recommend replacing both. The chances are that both hydraulic cylinders were manufactured at the same time: if one is on its way out the other may follow. If the top is raised and one hydraulic cylinder is working harder than the other the result over time can lead to a slightly bent convertible top frame. The replacement of both hydraulic cylinders will ensure that the top raises and lowers symmetrically.
Systems for this car take Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) and have a 5 year warranty when used with this fluid. Brake fluid should not be used as it voids the warranty. We also offer an installation manual when ordered.
The 12 volt motor-pumps include a mounting bracket with rubber grommets to reduce vibration.
