1962 Ford Galaxie 500XL Sunliner

Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this 1962 Ford Galaxie 500XL Sunliner. Finished in correct-to-the-trim-tag raven black with a white convertible top over a red interior, it's a striking combination that never fails to turn heads. This is an unusually well-equipped example, with a 390 cubic inch V8, automatic transmission, power steering, power top, bucket seats and center console with floor shifter. The car presents overall as an original survivor / driver. Body panels are straight with good gaps and the raven black paint has a nice shine; bumpers, trim and chrome show a light, but not objectionable, patina. Grille is excellent.

Interior is believed to be all original; there is some wear showing on the tops of the front bucket seats but otherwise carpets, door panels, dash, gauges, etc. have held up well (see photos for details). It's rare to find a '62 Galaxie with bucket seats and a console / floor shifter, and we love it. All of the gauges and lights (including instrument lights, courtesy lights and exterior lights) are working, the sun visors are intact, dash is nice and the windows roll up and down easily. Original AM radio in the dash works. The power convertible top is in good condition and functions normally. New-in-box seat belts, in red, accompany the car.

Under the hood is Ford's 390 cubic inch "Thunderbird" V8; equipped with a four-barrel carburetor and dual exahust, it was rated by the factory at 300 hp and still feels potent today. It's mated to a three-speed Cruise-O-Matic transmission. This Galaxie starts, runs, shifts and drives well. Completely stock engine compartment and drivetrain aside from an upgraded aluminum radiator and Petronix electronic ignition. Although the manual drum brakes are in good working condition and stop the car just fine, a brand new brake booster and dual-circuit master cylinder are included with the sale should the next owner wish to upgrade to power brakes.

If you're in the market for a classic 1960s American convertible, it's hard to beat the "bang for your buck" this Galaxie Sunliner offers. For more information about this 1962 Ford Galaxie 500 XL Sunliner convertible for sale at Motorcar Studio in Atlanta, please call 404-692-5250.
