Where were you in '62? Summer's coming and there's nothing cooler than crusin' around in a classic convertible, set up to accommodate several friends, or the entire family!
This 1962 Galaxie Sunliner is an excellent example of an offering by Ford that's cooler today than it was in 1962!
This particular Galaxie is finished in it's original color combination of Chestnut over a tri-tone Chestnut interior. All functions and accessories of the Galaxie work properly, and the beauty of this Sunliner is, the way it effortlessly drives down the road with comfort, style, and luxury.
When the mood hits you, lower white power convertible top, and within seconds, you're enjoying an “open-air” experience not unlike your own individual parade!
This Galaxie is equipped with it's original 352 CID engine, 3 speed automatic transmission, and geared for the highway, so crusing at high or low speeds is equally thrilling.
This Galaxie 500 is a very nice example of a completely factory stock collector car, that has somehow stayed out of the hands of “wanna-be” mechanics and customizing youths throughout the decades. And that is no easy task!
The bottom line is, this is a very fine, nicely restored, excellent running and driving classic convertible, poised to provide not only years of enjoyment, but truly and excellent investment as well.
