Comments: I found this car at a local salvage yard. With a straight body and all good glass, I wasn't about to let this one go to the crusher. So, I did some trading and brought it home. The tag shows it to have a 2V 352 and 3.00 gears. I found it to have a 4V 390 and 4.11 gears. Presently, I am using this one for parts. Submitted by Brian Spaeth, 01/31/2007.

Comments: A friend of mine brought me a packet of printed pages he had gotten from your web site so I thought I'd give it a visit. I was interested in the story about your first Galaxie. I, too, am the proud owner of Henry's pride and joy for '62. My baby is a Galaxie Sunliner convertible. Dark blue. White top, with blue and white interior and a 352 under the hood.

My car has been in my family since 1965. Dad bought it used from an agent of his who had bought it new in Leominster, Massachusetts. I was just 16 and getting my license. I drove the car all through high school then went away to the" flat lands" of Ohio for college. The car was well taken care of by my mother and sister for two years. Being a pragmatic New Englander my father must have gotten tired of paying for plane fare between Massachusetts and Ohio, so he made me a deal I couldn't refuse. If I would pay to have the brakes fixed and front end "tightened up" he would give me the car. This is in the summer of 1969, so Id be able to drive the "Bearmobile", as it came to be known, back to college in the fall. I drove it the for the remaining two years of school, got married in it, went on my honeymoon in it, drove my wife to the hospital for our first child in it...wow, the things I've done in that car!!

After moving to Northeast Ohio and using the old girl sparingly, I put her in a garage waiting for the day I could fix her up. That day has finally come. A year ago I began dismantling that same '62 Sunliner. The frame is now out from under the body and almost ready to be sandblasted. People tell me I'm crazy, that I could buy one "just like it" for a lot less than I'll have in finishing this one. Guess they don't understand the sentimental value in restoring THE car I used to drive in high school. It must take a true car nut to understand that feeling.

Sorry for rambling. I just really wanted to tell you I'm glad I found your registry, and I'll probably be using some of the valuable information I've found.

Thanks for your interest in old cars and '62 Galaxies in particular.

236. VIN 2G65X133646, BODY 76A, COLOR J, TRIM 35, DATE 11M, DSO blank, AXLE 1, TRANS 4
Options: Power Steering
Comments: This car has been in the family since the late 60s. First my brother owned it. When he decided to sell it, dad bought it and started fixing it up. Then it set in a barn for 14 years. When he decided to sell, we bought it. We painted the body, put on a new top, rebuilt the engine and had the trans rebuilt and seats recovered. We enjoyed it for several years. Then it was put in the barn for 11 years. Don't ever try to protect a stored vehicle by covering it with a plastic tarp, it holds in moisture bad. As of April 2007 it is back in my shop for another resurection. Submitted by Don & Pam Phillippe, Cosby, Missouri on 04/06/2007.

Comments: Original toploader 4 speed has been replaced by a race-prepped C6. Original 406 tri-power supposedly now contains many power updates including a roller cam. Very, very healthy sounding. Purchased the car several years ago at GoodGuys in Indianapolis. Previous owner had planned to campaign the car in Nostalgia SS class. Car is currently wearing black paint, and original front seat has been replaced with a drag bucket. Car is very straight and solid with the exception of some rust in the bottom of the doors and rear quarters. A real survivor. Pictures will be submitted at a later date.
