Description for Ford Other 1962

Unique, are body style in the most desirable of all - a convertible. 390 with fast fuel injection, link rear suspension, eady for the road and a great summer to come!

For 1962, he Galaxie name was applied to all of Ford's full size models, s the Fairlane name was moved to a new intermediate model and Custom was temporarily retired. New top-line Galaxie 500 (two-door sedan and hardtop, our-door sedan and hardtop, nd "Sunliner" convertible) models offered plusher interiors, ore chrome trim outside, nd a few additional luxury items over and above what was standard on the plainer Galaxie models. Base Galaxie models were available in two- and four-door sedans as well as the plain Ranch Wagon. In an effort to stimulate midseason sales, ord introduced a group of sporty cars along with a "Lively Ones" marketing campaign. These models featured the bucket seats and console that was popularized by the Chevrolet Corvair Monza, nd included a Fairlane 500 Sports Coupe, nd a Falcon Futura. The full-size line was available with new bucket-seats-and-console in "Lively One," the Galaxie 500/XL (two-door hardtop and convertible).

The 223cuin (3.7l) "Mileage Maker" 6-cylinderwas the base engine. The 292cuin (4.8l) V8 was standard on the 500/XL. The XL had sportier trim inside and out. This model was Ford's response to Chevrolet's Super Sport option for the big Impala, hich was introduced the previous year and saw a significant rise in sales for 1962. A 406cuin (7l) engine was available in single four-barrel or triple-carbureted "six-barrel" form. Tailfins were gone, iving the 1962 models a more rounded, ofter rear end look. Taillights were set lower into the rear panel and were partially sunken into the newly sculpted rear bumper.

The 1962 models were overweight by comparison to the Super Duty Pontiacs with their aluminum body panels and larger-displacement engines. Therefore, ate in the production run, ord's Experimental Garage was ordered to reduce the weight of the Galaxie. It produced 11 "lightweight Galaxies", aking use of fiberglass panels, s well as aluminum bumpers, ender aprons, nd brackets; the result was a Galaxie weighing in at under 3,400lb (1,542kg). The base 2-door Club Sedan was 3,499lb (1,587kg). It was an improvement.
