Car description

What you're seeing in this 1962 Ford Galaxie 500 XL. With an extensive list of upgraded components, his is a turn-key car that's ready to rock with all the hard work already done, nd the lowered stance and big wheels only emphasize one of the best-looking cars of the '60s.The paint is a pretty Silver, lbeit with a lot more metallic and a fantastic shine, o if you want to stand out in a sea of red, lack, nd white Galaxies, his is an outstanding way to do it. The finish is a few years old, erhaps the oldest part of the restoration, et it looks fresh and shines brilliantly, testament to a job done well. The chrome and stainless trim is excellent, ncluding the ornate grille, he taillight buckets and lenses, he aluminum section between the taillights, nd both of the front fender ornaments, ll of which give the car a detailed look without being over-done. The body is super straight and clean w/ no rust what so ever. The paint looks amazing but has just a couple of imperfections in please see pic's (around the antenna, nd trunk lid side edge. Better than driver quality paint. It is not cracking and has no scratches or swirl marks. The beautiful matching tri-tone interior looks simply awesome against the silver paint, nd they did it right by using dark carpets and a color-matched dash to tie everything together. Bucket seats and lots of space are par for the course in the luxury-oriented Galaxie, hich was Ford's top-of-the-line in 1962. Obviously there's a lot of new stuff inside. The dash looks pretty original, nd there's a period-perfect under-dash A/C unit that should be functional with a recharge. There is an AM radio, ut it hasn't worked in some time! I am 6'5" and I have to move the seat forward to reach the pedals. The interior isabsolutelygorgeous. It stands out without going gaudy. It gets tons of attention and will having people asking if itsthat'soriginalor not. The rebuilt 390 cubic inch V8 has a long list of new components. The big air cleaner matches the "after-market" valve covers. This Galaxie has power steering, ower brakes, ith front disc brakes, nd AC. The Ford-O-Matic three-speed automatic shifts well. Obviously the suspension has been lowered, hree or four inches in front and perhaps two or three inches in back, iving it a lowered stance that still rides well. The undercarriage is original and looks quite good, ighlighted by a newer dual exhaust system.Why invest in a Classic automobile?
