This extremely beautiful 1962 Ford Galaxie 500XL is for sale in our Louisville KY showroom. In 62 Ford would introduce two new series the Galaxie 500 and 500XL. Available in 11 different interiors and 13 different paint colors the possibilities were virtually endless. Ford had also done some improvements on ride quality and noise control making the 500's a fierce competitor for Chevy's Impala. This 62 appears to be a completely original car with no signs of even a repaint. The body is in excellent condition with no signs of body work ever being performed the sheet metal is as straight as they get. The Corinthian white paint is in good shape but for being almost 60 years old it is unbelievable condition. The Raven Black top gives the car a very sleek look and actually makes the top seem lower than what it is. All of the chrome and bright work is in good condition with some pitting starting but no rust. Open the door and the bucket seats upfront are separated by a console that houses the automatic shifter giving the 62 a much sportier feel. The red interior is in great condition with no rips or stains. The material itself is still in great condition with the red not showing any signs of fading and still feels soft to the touch. Under the hood the original 292 gets this Galaxie down the road nicely with a nice little rumble but only if you get into the throttle. Matched up to the classic cruise o matic transmission, shifts are nice and smooth matching the cars characteristics to a T. Ofcourse the stance with the aftermarket wheels really make this beauty stand out from the crowd. If you have wanted a classic cruiser that is out this world this one might be in your Galaxie.
