Comments:The car has paint code I Castillian Gold but the car is black with no trace of gold anywhere.  If it was a repaint you would think you could find some gold somewhere on the car back around the hinges or somewhere.  Submitted by Bob Harkins on 01/27/05.
Registry note: Unless the car had a stripped down restoration and paint job there should be remnants of the gold up under the dash, under the carpets on the floor, under the back seat or in the trunk.

11/02/05 update: Tom Hopkins has provided an updated photo of the finished wagon.  It looks great in this photo.  Tom also says that the car has been sold and is now in Missouri.
11/16/05 update: The wood grain restoration on this wagon looked so good i had to ask Tom how it was done.  Here is his response.

Paul,

The guy that owned this and did it is named Teddy Z.  Known pretty well in the Hot Rod circles.  Has built quite a few real woodies.  The insert is a vinyl that comes in a roll, hate to say it but similar to contact paper but obviously of a much better quality.  Think it cost about $600.00 for the roll to do this car.  The surround moldings are another real interesting project.  All necessary repairs and mending are done to the fiberglass (that's what they are) then sprayed a tan/beige color, somewhat personal preference, than they are wiped with the darker color.  Somewhat like staining old furniture.  Really interesting to see the detail that Ted goes thru in trying to make things look like real wood.  If you ever see it, you'll be extremely impressed.

01/18/07 update: On Jan. 17, 2007 this Country Squire sold at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Phoenix for $57,500.  It is great to see the 62 Galaxies getting this kind of recognition and being bid up this respectable value.  With a surf board mounted on the top, the car looked great up on the auction stage.
01/16/08 update: Once again, for the second year in a row, this car graced the auction block of the Barrett Jackson auction in Phoenix. If the buyer in 07 was still the owner, and hoped to make a profit on this great Squire, he was surely disappointed. This time, the car sold for $44,000. It still looked fantastic with that surf board mounted on top. The Speed TV announcers only had very positive comments about the car.

Options: Tri-Power 406. No other options, even Radio Delete.

Comments: 1962 Galaxie G Code Club Sedan - Very Rare & Correct Factory Muscle Car.  This Galaxie 2 door Club Sedan is a very rare 406 cid car.  The data tag DSO shows this to be a factory executive 84 (Home Office Reserve) car that was shipped to Atlanta 21.  All factory race vehicles from Ford had the same DSO of 84.  The 406cid engine was rated at 405 horsepower at 5800 rpm and 11.4:1 compression with a massive 448 ft-lb of torque and came only with a manual transmission.  This car has the correct 3/8 fuel line for the 406/427s as the smaller engines had the 5/16 lines - has the correct long air filter - Holley carburetors with progressive linkage, center electric choke - long metal fuel rail to feed the carbs - correct large exhaust factory big block headers.  This car has been completely restored and the engine built.  The engine compartment is fully detailed, stamped hoses, proper clamps, black with white letter heater hoses, correct radiator.  The engine features solid lifters, dual points, correct 406 heads and all correct period factory pieces.  The engine is dated 2F78, the same June(12F) as the car.  The firewall is white with black markings as factory.  By 63, all of the Fords had electric windshield wipers but in 62, only the 406 cars were required to have them because of the vacuum needs.  All FOMOCO stampings on the fenders, core support, and fan shroud, are there and correct.  The data tag that is very clean and has the correct rivets shows the 3-speed overdrive transmission that came with a lower geared rear end that shows E posi.  This car is fully restored on a beautiful 977 original mile car.  The frame-off was done in 96 and fully detailed again June 02 as a show car.  The correct Corinthian White is in gorgeous condition.  The car is completely straight and totally rust free.  The Ford stamping numbers are virtually everywhere.  The beautiful red interior is original with correct bench seat, correct fabric with the chrome flecks with the tri-tone and piping.  The glass is original (new windshield), the wheels are correct steel Kelsey Hayes with open slots fitted with chrome small hub caps and 7.10x15 Firestone black wall Deluxe Champions bias plys.  This is truly an unbelievable car that attracts crowds at car shows (when my wife lets me go!!).

Comments: Yes that is a real G-code car. The owner of the yard has a new, clear SD title.  He has documentation showing that it was originally sold in the Lexington, Kentucky area and from there went to Nebraska before coming to its present resting spot in South Dakota.  The owner said that when SD did the title search, a record of it in the state was not found, indicating it had never been issued a title in SD before.  The molding insert area is white.  The owner even managed to find and preserve a small piece of the build sheet with the G- and 5-codes clearly visible.  This car is for sale at S & S Salvage, 40815 SD Highway 34, Forestburg SD 57314.  Submitted on 10/9/04 by John Rotella.

40.  VIN 2E67B213903, BODY 65B, COLOR X, TRIM 84, DATE 03E, DSO 25, AXLE 5, TRANS 5
Comments: I purchased this 62 XL new in 1962 and sold it in 1966 when I bought a new 66 XL. The 62 was sold to a friend who still owns it with 72,000 miles on the clock and in near perfect shape. I had done some mild customizing but the new owner has returned it to absolute factory specs. I still own the 66 I bought when I sold the 62.
The interior trim color is beige which I do not find in the information in the shop manual or supplement. It is located near Philadelphia.  Submitted by Jim Defries: 10/16/2004
Update 2/23/05  The first photo is the car as it appeared in 1964 when I owned it.  The second two are from about 1996 at a local cruise.  The car is still owned by the friend who bought it from me in 1966.  I had a ride to a cruise in this car just a few months ago. What a blast.
