We are proud to present this 1962 Ford Galaxie 500 XL Convertible for sale in our Louisville KY showroom. The Ford Galaxie was a full size car built by Ford from 1959 to 1974.The name was used from 59 to 61 with 62 being the first year with the "500" and "500/XL" denoting the higher series. This 62 is the latter of the bunch coming from the factory with a lot of high end options for 62. Probably one of the most desirable options for 62 was the center console bucket seat option which this 62 has. It is rare option for 1962, since it was only available as a midyear release to try and compete with GM's SS option on their flagship Impala. The 62's are getting harder to find not to mention this one has only had 3 owners in its lifetime. The body is as straight and the red paint is nice it. The bright work is in good shape with the front and rear bumpers still having plenty of shine. Hit the switch on the fresh black convertible top and let the hydraulics do the rest of the work, the wind will be flowing through your hair before you know it. Of course no one likes the look of the ragtop exposed when itâ??s down so the original black boot cover does a great job and gives the car a more seamless look with the top down. The other advantage of having the top down is you can hear that healthy 390 under the hood, with its 330 ponies, it will get this piece of American steel moving down the road rather nicely. The current owner has gone through the brake system and upgraded with power disc brakes. This big beautiful cruiser will now stop easily with no worries. The 3 speed Cruise-O-Matic transmission is controlled with the console mounted shifter. Take a peek inside and you will see an interior that has been tastefully redone. If you are looking for that week end toy that is a bit different, but still has that classic 60â??s look, then look no further and become the 4th proud owner of this American piece of automotive history. Options on this include; power convertible top, power steering, power brakes, AM/FM radio, seat belts, polished aluminum shod with radial Tires.
