Well i have always enjoyed cars... mostly only classics and muscle cars. Always told myself when I'm old enough i will get a nice car, well many years later i have done just that. My car is far from a show car but, thats not what i wanted. I want something i can really drive and enjoy. My Galaxie is very rare due to the year model, for some reason car enthusiasts don't give the 62 galaxies the attention it so demands. Every show i go to , big or small it is the only one of it's kind. I ask myself all the time "WHY THE HELL DOESN'T ANYONE COLLECT THIS YEAR MODEL" Everyone seems to be head over hills in love with the 64 model Galaxie. If you ask me, it has to much chrome, and the sides of the car look funny. Check one out and maybe you will agree. Well I guess it's time for me to get off my soapbox on that subject. If you wanna know some history on the 62's let me know. thanks for reading.
p.s. my second passion is 55 chevys... although i don't own one i can still hope.

I'm a BIG fan of the 62s. I had a 405hp 4spd 406 2dr post back in 62. I gave up my 401hp 406 '61 Starliner for it and still to this day wish I hadn't done that! Now I am looking for another Starliner....pretty scarce these days!

Be easy on those long,wide, and chromed out '64s. I bought mine because it was what was available for the budget I had. And if I had known how much trouble it was going to be finding parts, I might have passed on it. As for all that chrome, yes there is alot, especially when you have to polish it. Love your '62. Had an old friend that had a '61 Starline. What a beautiful car.

I agree, you don't see many '62 Galaxies. But I like the '64 Galaxies, too. It's the big, round, "flower pot" taillights that seem to attract me, hence my ownership of a '61 T-Bird. So, I would shun the 1960 Galaxie, but like most of the other Fords from the 1950s & early to mid 1960s.
