Help identifying this Galaxie

This is an old family car I am trying to identify. I'm pretty sure it's a 1959 Galaxie:



However, I'd like to know the specific type if anyone can tell me. For instance is it a Galaxie 500?

For reference here's a video on YouTube:

Most pictures of 1959 Galaxies I can find online look like this:
chriswmos's 1959 Ford Galaxie - Carrollton, Texas

Any help appreciated! Thank you!

This is from a 1959 sales brochure.

No, I have them saved in my backup drive. Are you needing the whole brochure? I can upload it if you wish.

You rock! I searched all day online trying to figure out what year and model my dad's car was and you were the first person to have the correct information. I love the Internet, because it leads to great information and great folks, such as you, to provide that information! Thanks again!

Re: Help identifying this Galaxie

The Galaxie for 1959 was the top line model and had a roofline similiar to the 58-60 Thunderbirds. Some had the Galaxie script on the car along with the name Fairlane. The 59 tudor posts and four door sedan Fairlanes were not classified as Galaxies.

Ya they called this the Custom 300 model which was a little different from the Galaxie 500 along the roof trim and the hood and side emblems but it is still a 1959 model.
