For Sale: 1962 Ford Galaxie in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

This 1962 Ford Galaxie has the look of a big and premium coupe. But what really makes this one desirable is you get to lift the hood and show off the unique 406 big block V8 power with a triple-deuce on top. And to make sure you're going to love driving this fast Ford they gave you everything from air conditioning to four-on-the-floor.


The Galaxie was sporty, formal, and premium all rolled into one. The sweeping side trim and afterburner tail lights were positively jet-inspired. And the factory-correct Rangoon Red was resprayed later in life by an even hand to give this a bright and speedy look. There are also elegant design touches, like how the curve of the outer headlights became part of the fender line and the formal roof has plenty of bright trim. So this one is quite attractive just for its classic style, and then you notice the large dual exhaust tips and Cragar SS wheels with an extra meaty rear set. It lets you know there's much more going on with this Ford.


The interior is a mix of vintage and performance all wrapped in a stylish package. There's a quality appearance in the fundamentals, including the door panels, carpeting, and dash pad that make this inviting. And we especially love the bright white seats with red seatbelts. So a full-size Galaxie has the room to really share this with family and friends, and this one also has the presentation that will impress them. And they'll all love going for a ride in a classic with cold-blowing air conditioning. But even when it's just you, this one is a great place to spend some time. There are vintage details like the steering wheel and readouts in the machine-turned panels. But the auxiliary gauges, large tach, and Hurst Competition Plus floor shifter all signal the upgraded power package under the hood.


Just like the rest of the car, the engine bay impresses with its bright and tidy style. But for those who love blue oval performance, it's what's at the center that impresses the most. The VIN tells us this was born a 406 cubic-inch V8 car. It's a special big block displacement that was developed to help the Galaxie own the streets, and it was only available for two years. So it's great to have a year-correct block under the hood. And while a four-barrel carb is a nice feature, this one was upgraded to the ultra-desirable triple set of Holley dual-barrel carburetors. Factory shorty headers feed into a dual exhaust with Hooker mufflers, and so you know this one knows how to growl. This was promoted when new as a 400+ hp motor in stock spec, and so it's awesome to have the full control afforded by the four-speed. And as you look underneath, you can see how clean the full build is. Plus, you'll spot desirable features like front disc brakes and a limited-slip rear end.


The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and some spare components. This is the shining red Galaxie that contains one of the best performance packages of its era. So at an affordable price like this, you know this sharp and speedy classic won't stay long. Call today!!!
