Classic Car Overview
1962 Ford Galaxie 500 Sunliner Reading the 1962 Ford sales brochure it states that The first time you slip into the cockpit of the Galaxie 500/Sunliner, brace yourself, youre about to soar away from the world of the ordinary car! The Galaxie was a sleeper because it needed a big engine to move the car due to its size and weight. But the engine was large enough not only to move the car smoothly, but also it was really fast. Looks like a family car, performs like a muscle car, although the term had not been invented in 1966...but they were working on it. This 2-owner 1962 Ford Galaxie 500 Convertible has been in very good hands through its years. An older respray changing the color to a little lighter blue, original engine, and interior are just a few of the features that came with the original car and are still there and working and showing proudly. A few dents and dings as well as some paint chipping off that comes with use, a few trim pieces not perfect, but mostly original and well played with. Exterior Resprayed with a Light Blue we note some areas of chipping and dulling. Chrome bumpers, trim and badging show slight pitting, but are mainly shiny and attractive. A wider spear runs the belt line of this car and shows some uneven alignment with the doors. An easy action top clamping system is released, and the durable 5 ply white vinyl top is electrically hidden in mere seconds, without getting out of the drivers seat. The top is in good condition, and it is not known if it is a replacement, or original to the vehicle. It sports a tinted rear plastic window. Stock Ford steel hubcaps with their stylized lion center hub, play front man for 225/75 R15 tires with a thin whitewall highlight. Interior Two tone blue with thin white vertical stripe bolstered vinyl, and a center dark blue vinyl accent trim, cover the front split bench, and rear bench seats. The same material can be seen on the door panels, and the iconic Chevy chrome door actuator on the top end of the door panel is present. Instrumentation covered with decent glass shows all gauges in working and clear condition. They reside within a slightly chipped and worn, metal dash painted in the original Viking Blue. An AM radio with push button actuation for the favorites is in the center of the metal dash. Blue cut pile carpeting covers the floors, as well as Ford full on rubber mats. A courtesy lighting group are present, as well as the automatic convertible top knob. Drivetrain A 292ci V8 topped by a 2-barrel carburetor, and stock exhaust is connected to a 3-speed automatic transmission. Note the engine is unrestored and original, and shows some paint peeling, and dust and dirt as well as grease. Undercarriage Drum brakes are seen on all 4 wheels and are power assisted is the steering mechanism. A arm Independent Front Suspension, and Coil spring rear suspension, provide that Ford ride that can only be described as easy to live with. Plenty of surface rust is noted. Original interior, original engine and convertible top for this 62 example. SO, hop in and buckle up, you are about to soar away from the world of the ordinary car. Gosh people were gullible back in those days!
