1962 Ford Galaxy
1962 Ford Galaxie 500 2 dr hardtop. Factory 406 G Code Tri Power 406hp. Factory 4 speed. Factory 4.11 rear. Complete matching #s drivetrain. This car was built on February 28th 1962 making it one of the first ever produced 406 cars. Production of these cars did not begin until February or March of 1962. Because this car is so early it still has the column shift nub on the column because they did not have a new one designed yet. (and yes it is the original column) My May built 406 car has the same column but the shifter nub was non existant by then. This was Fords first 4 speed car. This car still retains its original Black paint and is totally rust free with the exception of one small hole on the passengers floor cfaused by water sitting in it. (pictures below show the spot) Otherwise super solid and straight car. No Body or paint work ever performed on this car since new so you wont find any hidden extras. Block and Heads are original, but the block has had some welding on the passenger side probably from throwing a rod at some point. Block casting is a C1AE. Heads are C2SE 6090B and are matching. Very rare 406 only exhaust manifolds still on the engine. Wrong intake and carb, but I have a correct Date coded tri power intake, carbs, and air cleaner available for sale also. Dealer installed AC was added to this car. Very complete minus the glass because it was all broken out a few years ago. All of the side window frames are still intact and in great shape. I have an extra back glass for the car. Upon removal of the door panel I found the Build sheet, or I should say most of it. It corresponds with the car exactly. This car was special ordered and has a unique DSO that we havnt decoded as of yet. Perfect very rare car for restoration. This may be the first 406 made as there are none earlier on the registery. Obviously needs a full restoration, and is a perfect candidate because of its outstanding condition and its rarity.
