1962 Ford Galaxie 500 Sunliner ConvertibleThis 1962 Ford Galaxie 500 Sunliner is a true classic cruiser. After all, it has terrific colors, plenty of chrome, and a big V8 under the hood. So when you can find an irresistible sense of style, you know it's an irresistible deal.
Ford had fun with the Galaxie's design in '62. There was a jet-age look everywhere from the turbine-style wheel covers to the afterburner taillights. Plus, the full-length trim that seamlessly wrapped around the front end was a standout only offered this year. Overall, the low, wide, and sleek look really captured the era and made it timelessly cool. It's this kind of distinction that has kept this a well-respected classic. In fact, the odometer is believed to reflect the car's full actual mileage (averaging only about 1,500 miles annually.) The sheetmetal looks quite nice, and the factory-correct Ming Green was even given a modern clearcoat respray. It's the kind of complete quality that keeps this sunshine-friendly convertible looking good on every sunny Sunday drive. And even on the days when you don't have the top down, the crisp white convertible roof coordinated with the accenting in the full-length trim for an attractive coordinated appearance.
With the flip of a switch, the white folding roof powers down to reveal a sea of turquoise. In fact, with the convertible boot in place, this is a very harmonized look of blue/green inside and out. So the total package has a terrific 1960s sense of style. This full interior is even believed to be highly original, and so they covered the front split bench in a protective vinyl to help preserve this high traffic area. As a full-sized Ford, you can share this custom classic with plenty of family and friends. They even neatly added an AM/FM digital tuner w/cassette for upgraded driving music to keep everyone happy. Of course, the best seat will always be the driver's one. The artful steering wheel with Ford family crest at the center sits in front of the classic gauges with sporty machine-turned panel. It makes for a true classic car driving experience.
Pop the hood and you'll see Ford's FE big block V8. It has a true honest look everywhere from the FoMoCo washer fluid bag to the big blue air topper. We have a receipt from 2013 showing a professional rebuild on this powerhouse identifying it as the big daddy 390 cubic-inch motor. We even have plenty of receipts showing a history of proper maintenance. That means you've got a strong torque king in the engine bay. It really lets this Galaxie Sunliner run the boulevard effortlessly. Even the dual exhaust makes a powerful sound without losing this car's cruising attitude. Plus, the three-speed automatic transmission, modern touring tires, and power steering make the total package quite comfortable going down the road.
You not only get a long maintenance file on this one, but also the owner's manual and previous registration docs. It all makes for a true classic cruiser that's looking for a proper nostalgia lover. Call today!!!
