Vehicle Description

1962 Ford Galaxie 500 Convertible

Car History

The Ford Galaxie was a full-sized car that was built in the United States of America by Ford for model years 1959 through to 1974.

We have a beautiful red on red 1962 Ford Galaxie 500 Convertible with low miles, 292 V8 engine and automatic transmission and a like new black convertible top here at Adventure Classics.

The Ford full-size line like the 500XL got a new bucket-seats-and-console. The 292 cubic inch V8 was standard on the 500/XL. It had a sportier trim inside and out as part of the package in response to Chevrolet's Super Sport option for the big Impala, which was introduced the previous year.

Engine & Drivetrain

Our Galaxie looks like day one off the showroom floor with its rebuilt and restored 292 cubic inch Ford V8 engine and transmission sitting in the very clean and detailed engine compartment.

It has red paint on the engine block and intake, chrome valve covers with "Thunderbird Special" decals on them, black air cleaner assembly, Power Steering, Power Brakes, Dual Exhaust with hi-ram factory exhaust manifolds, and all other hoses, clamps, and wiring looks great.


The pictures do not do the awesome red front and rear bench seating interior with the seats having white cording. The door panels match and the dash is in great shape with all the gauges show well and function appropriately.

It also has a Factory Clock, red carpet, black leather wrapped steering wheel, radio, and nice black convertible top with a red body color matching boot to cover it while it is down.

The adjustable Mylar-trimmed bucket seats flanking the center console could be adjusted manually and electronically on a plush interior with padded dashboard and optional front seat belts.


The exterior body is in great condition with its bright red paint, chrome side trim, dual mirrors, chrome front and rear bumpers, and emblems and grille.

The 1962 models sported a more rounded, softer rear end look without the tailfins. Taillights were set lower into the rear panel and were partially sunken into the newly sculpted rear bumper.

Large, round, taillight cluster is similar to the ones on the Thunderbird and appeared in 1962 on the Ford Falcon and Ford Fairlane.

It rides great on the wide white walls on factory steel wheels and chrome hubcaps.


The gorgeous red on red 1962 Ford Galaxie 500 Convertible we have here at Adventure Classics is drop dead stunning, It gets looks just sitting or driving down the road.
