Yet another $.02 worth from a proud owner of a 1970 Mach 1 351C @ http://community.webshots.com/album/18644819fHAehGJAjt
First it's Galaxie, not Galaxy. Although isn't there an Aussie car called
Galaxy? Do a Yahoo search for "Ford Galaxie", there's a few sites devoted
to them. Most have forums with cars and parts for sale.
May I ask, Why 1962? They surpass the 1960 (Yeech)along with the '61
(much better) in looks but are not really sought after. I owned a 62.5
Galaxie 500 XL for a while many years ago. The body style wasn't really
impressive,IMHO, but the interior was pretty cool with the buckets, floor
shifter and rear mono speaker. I could just never warm up to the body
style. Performance wise, with a 390 4-bbl and 4 spd. it was no slouch.
IIRC the factory wheels, or covers were sharp, although I can't picture
them right now. Maybe these cars are just under appreciated. I know the
selling price jumps up with the 1963 or 1963.5 hardtop fastback. Ford was
in full race form back then. You just mught be looking for an, as yet,
underappreciated jewel. This was in the middle of the horsepower wars so
the 62 could have merits that I'm not aware of. Maybe an early 427 side
Good Luck, Tom

Well, if you're in the Jacksonville, NC area there's an old banana boat
yellow one sitting out in formt of Hartsfield's Pawn shop on Hwy 24 West
between Hubert and Jacksonville. Although it may be a 63 or 64. I
haven't gotten out to look at it.
