This 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
Pop the hood and you'll see Ford's 352 V8. It has a true honest
look everywhere from the FoMoCo washer fluid bag to the big blue
air topper. We have plenty of receipts showing a history of proper
maintenance. 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.
