Mexico City 1959 Ford Galaxie Needs TLC

This is Down On The Street Bonus Edition, where we check out interesting street-parked cars located in places other than the Island That Rust Forgot. The streets of Mexico City are tough on cars…

That means that an old Detroit battleship - or maybe an air-cooled Beetle - tends to be a wise choice for drivers in Mexico's ancient capitol city. The-Simpsons-Rule spotted this extremely rough first-year Galaxie parked on the street last summer, and we can't be sure whether or not it runs. The glass, lights, and trim are mostly gone, but the tarp over the dash suggests that the owner plans to fix it up. We certainly hope that's the case!

Hi guys The-Simpsons-Rule here,
in a recent trip to Mexico city I was strolling around the neighborhood when I came across this very old Ford Galaxie and immediately thought of you guys. All i know(or can remember for that matter) is that it's an automatic and.... well it's very old. Well i've included some pics so you can see for yourself how this car has seen better days.
