Description of 1962 Ford Galaxie Sunliner

What you're seeing in this 1962 Ford Galaxie 500 XL convertible is a big pile of money that only looks like a vintage ragtop. With an extensive list of upgraded components, his is a turn-key car that's ready to rock with all the hard work already done, nd the lowered stance and big wheels only emphasize one of the best-looking cars of the '60s.I can't explain why the Galaxies don't get the same love as the Impalas, ecause this is one heck of a good-looking car at a bargain price. The paint is a pretty close approximation of the original code V Chestnut, lbeit with a lot more metallic and a fantastic shine, o if you want to stand out in a sea of red, lack, nd white Galaxies, his is an outstanding way to do it. The finish is a few years old, erhaps the oldest part of the restoration, et it looks fresh and shines brilliantly, testament to a job done well. Look how well the doors fit, ow neatly the trim lines up from panel to panel, nd just the ultra-clean look of one of Ford's better ideas. The chrome and stainless trim is excellent, ncluding the ornate grille, he taillight buckets and lenses, he aluminum section between the taillights, nd both of the front fender ornaments, ll of which give the car a detailed look without being over-done. The remaining stuff, ncluding both bumpers, as sent out and restored to better-than-new condition, o the car looks like a million bucks.The beautiful matching tri-tone interior looks simply awesome against the copper paint, nd they did it right by using dark carpets and a color-matched dash to tie everything together. A bench seat and lots of space are par for the course in the luxury-oriented Galaxie, hich was Ford's top-of-the-line in 1962. Obviously there's a lot of new stuff inside, nd the pleated seat covers give it a sporting feel with plenty of room for six adults. The dash looks pretty original, nd there's a period-perfect under-dash A/C unit that should be functional with a recharge. There is no radio, urprisingly enough, ust a block-off plate, ut thanks to a lot of new components like window felt, ice-looking cranks and regulators, nd shiny door handles, t has a very complete, olid feeling. The tan power top stows under a matching copper-colored boot and the trunk is Spartan but shows no big signs of trouble awaiting a new owner.The rebuilt 390 cubic inch V8 has a long list of new components. It's a period-correct block filled with correct Ford parts, lus a rebuilt distributor and a fresh oil pump to keep it alive. The big air cleaner matches the " Ford" valve covers that were a staple of Blue Oval performance in the early '60s. The big A/C compressor dominates the top of the engine bay, ut there's also a correct expansion tank and accessory washer bag to add some contrast. The Ford-O-Matic three-speed automatic shifts well and we believe there are 3.00 gears out back that make it an easy highway cruiser. Obviously the suspension has been lowered, hree or four inches in front and perhaps two or three inches in back, iving it a slammed stance that still rides well. The undercarriage is original and looks quite good, ighlighted by a newer dual exhaust system. 20-inch wheels have a Torque Thrust look for a cool twist on an old favorite and are wrapped in 225/35/20 front and 255/35/20 rear tires.You can't go wrong with one of the best looking cars of the era and the modifications do nothing to change the awesome look. This Galaxie is a sure-fire bet for summertime fun. Call today!
