Vehicle Story

This 1962 Ford Galaxie Sunliner convertible is finished in white over a red vinyl interior with a black cloth top and is powered by a 390ci V8 paired with an automatic transmission.  The car was sold new and spent most of its life in North Carolina before undergoing a comprehensive restoration in 2016. Equipment includes power steering, American Racing wheels, a modern audio system, dual exhaust, and a new power-operated top.  Located in Marblehead, Ohio, this Galaxie is now offered on a clean Ohio title in the seller’s name.

Finished originally in Corinthian White, the car was refinished in its original color during the 2016 restoration. The chrome trim and other trim is in good condition, free of corrosion and pitting.  The car has signature quad Galaxie headlamps in the grille, dual side view chrome mirrors, and a full-width ribbed taillight panel with large, round taillights.  The powered black convertible top and plastic rear window were replaced recently operates with no issue; a new boot cover is included in the sale as well.  390 badges have been added to the fenders while side spears with red accents run the length of the car.

American Racing 15” Torq Thrust wheels are finished with matte gray spokes and a polished lip. Redline radial tires are mounted on all four corners.  The car is equipped with power steering and manual brakes, while the suspension features new leaf springs and new shocks all around.

The interior is fitted bench seats upholstered in red vinyl with white stripes, with matching red door panels, carpet, and dash.  Red lap belts have been added for safety, and an aftermarket single-disc AM/FM/CD head unit was mounted underneath the dash.  Polished trim strips run the length of the dash while a "Galaxie" script is mounted on the glove box door. The trunk has a gray factory-style mat and contains a spare tire and bumper jack.

Instrumentation includes a 120-mph speedometer along with accompanying gauges for coolant temperature and fuel level, along with an analog clock.  There were additional under-dash gauges added within the past year which contain readouts for oil pressure, coolant temperature, and voltage.  The five-digit odometer reads 8k miles, which are the miles since restoration.  True miles are unknown.

The original 252ci V8 has been upgraded with a 390ci V8, which was an available option when new, and features a four-barrel carburetor, chrome air cleaner, and chrome valve covers. During the restoration, the engine bay was cleaned and refinished in satin black, as was the engine block and heads. Recent maintenance includes an oil change within the past year. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a Cruise-O-Matic automatic transmission.
