This 1962 Ford Galaxie 500 Club Victoria is coming from long-term ownership. That kind of care means solid investment everywhere from the shining paint to the rebuilt V8.
This has spent 30+ years under the care of one family, and 15 of which were under the direct ownership of this consignor. He's made some nice investments in this coupe, including upgrading the paint to this metallic light blue a few years ago. The bodywork was done well before the paint was laid down, and so that .....
makes for quite a solid style. We like this level of care on this car because the Victoria was an upper-market trim level, and that means plenty of ornamentation. So this one has its details in place, like the full-length trim, bright chrome bumpers, intricate grille, rocker trim, and badges at the base of the distinct hardtop. So the first impression this one will give off is premium, respected, and absolutely vintage. But those mag-style wheels also give an image of a sporty hardtop.
The sea of blue continues inside. The odometer is believed to reflect the car's full actual mileage, and that means averaging only about 1,600 miles annually in this classic. So there is a well-preserved style. You see it in details like the clean and complete presentation of the stock-style bench seats. They also have extra wide room for everyone to get comfortable in this cruiser. The dash is built around the driver, including the heater controls, and even the AM radio is still there for display. And when you grab the three-spoke steering wheel it has just the right texture to let you feel this one's history.
Under the hood is Ford's 352 cubic-inch V8. The air grabber and valve covers look especially fresh and bold in the Ford blue. And when people tell you that, you can mention to them that this powerhouse was rebuilt only about 6k miles ago and bored .030 over. The three-speed automatic transmission was also rebuilt at the same time as the motor to keep this an easy and confident cruiser. Plus, power steering, power brakes, and wide modern tires make the total package quite comfortable going down the road.
Complete with restoration photos, it's hard not to resist a cool V8 classic cruiser that has been treated with family care for decades. Call today!!!
