2. VIN 2J69G163665.   To restore or not to restore?......That is the question. Submitted/owned by John in Beaumont Texas. Restoration is a magnum undertaking but a G code convertible just may be worth bringing back from the dead. Good Luck John.

Update 8/15/09: During the last weeks it has got a new paint job according to the old two tone paint and looks very good now, like new! So I send You a picture of my "brand new" car and I would be glad if you would use it on your site instead of the photo which documents the old status of the car.

This Galaxie was built at the Wayne Michigan Plant on August 11, 1961. It is currently the earliest production date and lowest production number (12) car in the Registry.  It is quite possible that this is indeed the first 1962 Galaxie Sunliner built.

Update 8/27/04 - From Kentucky, this Galaxie has found its way back to its birthplace. It was assembled in Wayne, Michigan and is now owned by Tom Hopkins of Dearborn. Tom purchased the car as a body and frame and will be doing a resto-mod to bring it back to life. Good luck Tom and keep updated with photos as you progress. Tom is also the proud owner of a beautiful red '61 Starliner.
Update 4/10/05: Tom is now the proud owner of Entry number 41 also.
