1962 Ford Galaxie 500 Sunliner
We love the era when the convertibles were big, fast, and brilliant. This 1962 Ford Galaxie 500 Sunliner is an ideal mixture of luxury and performance with 390 V8 power and a bucket seat interior... all wrapped in a vintage droptop body built for cruising. It's hard not to love the early-60s Galaxies. The people at Ford made sure that their full-sized car was represented well with cool design touches, like the afterburner-style taillights. And we love that they placed the headlights so far out in the wide stance that they became part of the fender line. This gave the impression that everything was stretched to the max on this large Ford. This also allowed for some seriously large bright elements such as the full-length side trim, wide chrome bumpers, and the full-width grille. But take a closer look at all this brightwork. Everything has been maintained so nicely, that this big American can shine its brightest when you take it out for a sunny day cruise Ã¢â‚¬â€œ exactly what you want on a classic droptop. Plus, the factory-correct Rangoon red paint not only gives this a commanding presence on street, but also it emphasizes sporty style convertible. That's probably why they even gave the steel wheels this red color in the special Rally-style package. While the white roof is exactly what you want to brighten up a gray day, with the touch of a button, the power top folds down to reveal a different kind of attitude for the interior. After all, when a vintage car is cherry red on the outside, we all know the best interior color is a deep dark black. But more than attractive for its color, you love this Sunliner for its premium presentation. The seats look great with their intricate patterns and plenty of bright trim. Plus, the door panels, dash, carpeting, and center console all match this fresh and dark presentation. This is a full-sized convertible, so there's plenty of room for family and friends. But even when it's just you, this one is a great place to spend some time. After all, bucket seats and an armrest on the console give you an individual level of comfort on every drive. Plus, you get to experience classic American motoring at its finest with the intricate design of the vintage steering wheel, and beyond that, the original speedometer that's so wide it seems to need its own zip code. In fact, we dare you to find a piece that's not period-correct on this whole dash. Pop the hood and you'll see that callouts on the fenders were not lying. The big 390 cubic-inch V8 fills the engine bay with big blue oval muscle. It looks great with the silve elements drawing attention the correct valve covers as large air topper. A motor this size has no trouble giving this full-size Ford some real get-up-and-go, and the dual exhaust makes a powerful sound without losing this car's cruising attitude. Plus, this Galaxie's three-speed transmission, power steering, and power brakes make the total package quite comfortable going down the road. A cool vintage droptop with a premium interior and plenty of V8 power. It's amazing it's all available now for under $30k. That's why you know you need to hurry for this one. Call today!!!
