Up for sale in our Tampa showroom is this very clean 1962 Ford Galaxie 500XL Convertible. In 1962, Ford introduced two new series: the Galaxie 500 and Galaxie 500XL.

The frame members received a new redesign to isolate the passenger compartment and cut out noise, vibration and ride harshness while the body rocker panels were zinc to armor against rust and corrosion. Along with options such as the Power Tailgate Window and MagicAire Heater, there was the Console Range Radio, Lifeguard Jr. door locks and cargo cover. Inside, 93.5 cu. ft of space provided ample storage over 10 feet long with tailgate open - 8 feet with tailgate closed.
