A little over a year ago, a car that many believed to be lost forever resurfaced. The car in question is a 1963 Ford Galaxie lightweight and it is definitely one rare old Ford. To many, it was known as the “Dockery Ford Galaxie” as it was campaigned in the ‘60s by Morristown, New Jersey’s Dockery Ford dealership. The “Albino,” as it was nicknamed, was raced by Bob and Barbara Martin for a couple of years before it went on its way to become a street car before vanishing.
The car sat hidden for decades before my father, Scott Davies, and his best friend, Ed Shanley, got a hot tip that led them to the Galaxie, hidden under piles of boxes in someone’s home garage in New Jersey. I was lucky enough to be along for the ride when they rescued the old girl. You can read more about the car’s history and the rescue here.
