Description
We are super-thrilled offer for sale this eye-catching 1962 Ford Galaxie 500 Sunliner (convertible) in our Saint Louis Showroom of Gateway Classic Cars. The next owner of this beauty will be fortunate enough to inherit the REO Speedwagon 8-Track cassette tape that you can see sticking out of the player. BACKGROUND: The Ford Galaxie is a full-sized car that was built in the United States of America by Ford for model years 1959 through to 1974. The name was used for the top models in Ford's .....
full-size range from 1958 until 1961, in a marketing attempt to appeal to the excitement surrounding the Space Race. For 1962, all full-size Fords wore the Galaxie badge, with "500" and "500/XL" denoting the higher series. Ford stated in its sales literature that XL stood for "Xtra Lively." In 1962 the new top-line Galaxie 500 (two-door sedan and hardtop, four-door sedan and hardtop, and "Sunliner" convertible) models offered plusher interiors, more chrome trim outside, and a few additional luxury items over and above what was standard on the plainer Galaxie models. (source: Wikipedia) This particular 1962 Ford Galaxie 500 Sunliner is now on its third owner and has been in the same family for a significant amount of time. By appearances and testimony, this Galaxie looks to be an original survivor with a number-matching engine and transmission that has never been rebuilt. So, you are looking at something unique and valuable here. One of the things to get very excited about with this 1962 Ford Galaxie 500 Sunliner is how well maintained the interior condition is. The seats and inside door panels have all been tightly fitted with plastic to protect them from wear and damage. The dash is in great shape and does not show any fading or wear. With exception to the temp gauge, all the other gauges show well and function appropriately. As you can witness in the video, the convertible top opens and closes smooth and tight. The exterior body is in good condition. Upon our inspection we didn't notice any disqualifying damage or corrosive rust. The chrome trim is still in good condition, as well as the red body paint; albeit, showing swirls from years of buffing. In short, you have every reason to inquire further about this 1962 Ford Galaxie 500 Sunliner by viewing it in greater detail, including HD pictures and an HD video of the car running and driving at our website - http://www.gatewayclassiccars.com.
