nr: 13 /  1962 Galaxie 500 Sunliner AUT. AUT. Oldtimer


For 1962, the Galaxie name was applied to all full-size Ford models, as the Fairlane name was moved to a new intermediate model and Custom was temporarily discontinued. New top-line Galaxie 500 (two-door sedan and hardtop, four-door sedan and hardtop, and "Sunliner" convertible) models offered more interiors, more chrome trim on the outside, and a few extra luxury items on top of what was standard on the simpler Galaxie models. Base Galaxie models were available in two- and four-door sedans, as well as the regular Ranch Wagon. In an effort to boost mid-season sales, Ford introduced a group of sports cars along with a "Lively Ones" marketing campaign. These models featured the bucket seats and console popularized by the Chevrolet Corvair Monza, and included a Fairlane 500 Sports Coupe and a Falcon Futura. The full-size line was available with new bucket seats and console "Lively One", the Galaxie 500/XL (two-door hardtop and convertible). Ford stated in its sales literature that XL stood for "Xtra Lively".

The 223 cu in (3.7 L) "Mileage Maker" 6-cylinder was the base engine. The 292 cu in (4.8 L) V8 was standard on the 500/XL. The XL had sportier upholstery inside and out. This model was Ford's answer to Chevrolet's Super Sport option for the large Impala, introduced last year and saw a significant increase in sales in 1962. carbureted "six-barrel" shape. The tail fins were gone, giving the 1962 models a more rounded, softer tail. The taillights were positioned lower in the rear panel and partially recessed into the newly shaped rear bumper. Outside, XL models received a thicker chrome spear on the body side, along with a new "Galaxie 500XL" decal on each rear fender (including the convertible, where this badge replaced the "Sunliner" script). An oval version of the Galaxie "star" decal replaced Ford decals on the roof canvas panels on hardtops. The shapes of the front fenders were the same as in 1961; a slightly modified flat-face grille featured a large "star" decal in the center for all 500 and higher-end Galaxie models.

The 1962 models were overweight compared to the Super Duty Pontiacs with their aluminum body panels and larger displacement engines. That's why Ford's Experimental Garage was ordered late in the production run to reduce the weight of the Galaxie.[14] It produced 11 "lightweight galaxies," using fiberglass panels, as well as aluminum bumpers, fender skirts, and brackets; [14] The result was a Galaxie weighing less than 3,400 pounds (1,542 kg). The base 2-door Club Sedan was 3,499 lb (1,587 kg). It was an improvement.
