If you’re looking for space-age styling with plenty of power to boot, look no further than this gorgeous 1962 Ford Galaxie 500 hardtop coupe.
Finished in Raven Black, this car’s finish has a beautiful luster. Its restrained use of chrome and bright work further accentuate its smoothed lines, lending an air of sporty distinction befitting its “500” designation. Chrome Cragar wheels and dual exhaust tips give this Galaxie 500 just the right amount of additional pop.
This interior of this looker is equally impressive, featuring custom two-tone bucket seats from a 1964 Thunderbird in sporty Red and Black vinyl. The seating areas, headliner, carpeting, interior door panels, and dashboard are all in excellent condition. Its tilt steering wheel will have you comfortably in position at the helm. You’ll also appreciate this car’s original AM radio with a working FM converter. In addition, a full array of AutoMeter Sport Comp gauges will keep you informed about what’s going on under the hood.
Powered by a fully rebuilt 428 CID V-8 from a 1966 Mercury Marauder mated to a rebuilt Toploader 4-speed manual transmission, this Galaxie is no slouch on the road! Other performance enhancements include an aluminum radiator, dual exhaust system with Magnaflow mufflers, and a 9” Ford rear-end. Having just 100 miles since being rebuilt, this Galaxie is ready to be driven.
Minor imperfections in the finish and chrome do not detract from the overall appearance of this car. In addition, the clock is not currently functioning.
If a beautifully styled and powerful early 60s car in a stunning color combination is what you desire, you will love stunning 1962 Ford Galaxie 500!
