X-CODE 352 V8, FACTORY CORRECT COLORS, AWESOME INTERIOR, PWR STEER, NICE SOLID!
Rarity, exclusivity, and the instant appeal of a ragtop – this 1962 Ford Galaxie 500 XL Sunliner will feel like a V8 treat every time you get behind the wheel. So to have such a correct car turn-key offered for an obtainable price is an irresistible deal.
Long and sleek, this is the classic American droptop that instantly conveys speed and elegance. The factory-correct Corinthian White paintjob is bright and sophisticated at the same time. And that's especially true thanks to at least one professional respray during this car's lifetime to keep it looking its brightest. All the brightwork is quite good – the bumpers have a mirror shine, the intricate grille is complete, and the rear panel fills the space in-between the jet-inspired taillights. We especially love the full-length side trim. It not only emphasizes the straightness of the sheetmetal, but also the black element in it does a great job of coordinating with the power folding roof to make this Ford look fantastic with the top up. Even the details are still in place, like the correct badging, rear fender skirts, and factory wheel covers. It's all this care over the last 55 years that make this an impressive total package.
The factory-correct gold interior received just as much attention as the exterior in keeping it looking great. This level of care is fantastic to see in the top-of-the-line, full-sized Ford because there's plenty of great bright trim incorporated into the weave of the door panels and seats to makes this a very cool place to spend some time. Bucket seats are a rarity in these family-style vehicles. But the premium Galaxie XL wanted to offer Thunderbird-like style, and so you'll really enjoy the individual comfort that even comes with a stylized center console. The three-spoke steering wheel with bright inner trim is a vintage Ford favorite, and it's set in a machine-turned panel that's another XL exclusive. As you gaze across the dash, you truly realize the level of care in this car with everything from the AM radio to the heat/defrost controls in remarkably well preserved condition. It's true vintage cruising at its finest, and there's even a huge trunk if you want to take this to car shows a few states away.
Open the hood for a true treat. The 352 cubic-inch V8 is authentic right down to the bold blue block, matching air topper, and bright valve covers. You even get factory stickers and the FoMoCo coolant bag. The fresh appearance of the correct components is the kind of overall execution that impresses car show crowds and the judges, too! But the convertible is more than just for showing off. This V8 is the ideal early '60s powerplant. It's refined to make the performance seem almost effortless, and the dual exhaust now has glasspacks on it for a bit of a brawny note. Plus, with power steering and a three-speed automatic transmission, this is a powerful and comfortable classic convertible.
The Sunliner was the most expensive of the Galaxie line, and thus, fewer people got to experience it in 1962 than any other version in the lineup. But today, even though it's now more exclusive as a classic, the price is quite obtainable. Don't let this one slip away, call today!
