This 1962 Ford Galaxie 500 XL has the look of a big and premium coupe. But what really makes this one desirable is you get to lift the hood and show off V8 power with a triple-deuce on top.
The Galaxie 500 XL like this was sporty, formal, and premium all rolled into one. The sweeping side trim and afterburner tail lights were positively jet-inspired. And the factory-correct Rangoon Red was resprayed later in life by an even hand to give this a bright and speedy look. There are also elegant design touches, like how the curve of the outer headlights became part of the fender line. The hardtop profile has a formal roofline, complete with insignia trim and a Corinthian White top for a two-tone style. It all comes together to make for an overall sharp-looking coupe with a broad appeal.
A great reason to keep all the windows down on this pillarless hardtop is so that people can get a good view at the well-done interior. And just like the exterior, the inside is a mix of vintage premium and performance. There's a freshness in the fundamentals, including the door panels, carpeting, and dash pad that make this inviting. And we especially love how the seats feel almost like brand new, and they are complete, right down to the trim. So a full-size Galaxie has the room to really share this with family and friends, and this one also has the presentation that will impress them. But even when it's just you, this one is a great place to spend some time. After all, the up-market XL gives you front bucket seats and console in-between. And this has a sporty feeling with everything from the floor shifter to the machine-turned trim on the dash.
Under the hood is a well-done presentation of Ford 330 cubic-inch V8. The engine bay has the look of performance with the polished Edelbrock valve covers, bright Accel plug wires, and the Cobra-style air cleaner. And underneath the long air grabber is a triple set of dual-barrel carburetors. Not only do you have a desirable triple-deuce setup, but also Edelbrock aluminum heads. That's the kind of setup that really gives this Galaxie 500 XL the potential to become a very cool executive express. But more than just a powerhouse, this has the right cruising features. The smooth shifting three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and modern Uniroyal Tiger Paw tires to keep this comfortable going down the road.
This is the cool vintage hardtop that has plenty of premium style, and a V8 with a great muscle car flair. So it makes for a great package that you need to get your hands on right now. Call today!!!
