For Sale: 1962 Ford Galaxie in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

A full-size drop-top like this 1962 Ford Galaxie convertible makes for an excellent classic cruiser. It only improves with investment in upgrading items like the suspension and fuel-injected V8 power. So it'll be hard to resist taking out a convertible that was made to feel more confident out on the road.

We love this full-sized Ford because they took their time with the style lines. Everything seems to flow together, like the headlights that melt into the fender, the tail lights that are cradled by the bumper, and the full-length trim wraps around the front end. It makes for a great-looking vintage car We're told the restoration was done on this in 2017, and you may even find some items that feel a bit older. It's part of a total package that likes to give you a proper old-school look while also upgrading the actual driving experience. For example, metallic red paint is an older application that has a radiant look in the sunshine with the right looks of use. The same goes for the chrome bumpers with a hint of patina. It's the right kind of style on a classic lowrider-style cruiser. That's also why you have the lowered suspension and plenty of sharp-looking golden pinstriping. And as you look closer... the good weather-stripping, newer convertible top, and wide BF Goodrich T/As are more about investing in a comfortable cruiser for today.

The bright red interior looks good against the exterior, and now it's joined by a tasteful black. The carpet, door panels, and dash pad look good. And we especially like the seats with the detailed trim and comfy cloth inserts. It's all part of the right look for a fun car that's also easy to let family and friends pile in and go for a drive. You'll find a nice list of worthwhile details. It includes stock-style items like the power convertible top, convertible boot, and a large center console. This is joined by upgrades like the interior lighting and an AM/FM/CD stereo. Plus, the added sports steering wheel, tilt column, and aux temp gauge are the right feature for a better cruiser.

We continuously have been calling this an excellent cruiser, and when you open the hood, you fully understand why. The mighty Ford FE block has been built for a true driver's setup. The V8 now has a FAST electronic fuel injection system sitting atop an Edelbrock aluminum intake. It makes for a better all-around powerhouse. There are also plenty of nice newer supporting components for added style and durability, like the Cobra finned valve covers, an HEI distributor, upgraded brackets, upgraded pulleys, and a serpentine belt system. Plus, the aluminum radiator with an electric fan helps keep this complete package running cool. It is an excellent cruiser, and the hum from the dual exhaust and Flowmaster mufflers is positively hypnotic. You also have newer bushings, a three-speed automatic transmission, and hydroboost power brakes with discs up front. And have you seen the rear suspension? It's a strong tubular steel four-link upgrade with adjustable coil overs. Oh yes, you'll like driving this Galaxie.

It's time to enjoy driving a distinct classic...it's time for this fuel-injected Galaxie 500 convertible. Call now!
