What I am missing is the original glove box manual. Submitted by Corey Meyer, 08/23/2010.

Dick Heyler from Performance Associates raced a 2dr post for Ben Alexander Ford out of LA with good success. Good chance car came there. Hopefully some info on this car will surface.

I also have a '62 2dr post G code with an overdrive trans.(2 code). Not a special order car. Submitted by Paul for current owner, 08/29/2010.

Registry Note: Thank you Tim for sharing this rare gem with us. Keep us updated with your restoration progress.

All of the 1962 Galaxie brochures, flyers and folders state that the 4 speed manual transmission is required behind the 406 engine. Here is an exception to that “rule.” This very well could be a one-of-a-kind 1962 Galaxie. A G Code, 406, that came from the assembly plant with an automatic transmission.

The Registry prides itself in the accuracy of the information posted here. So, given this documented rare exception, the Options page Transmission information will be revised to indicate that the 4 speed was not necessarily “always” required behind the 406.

Not only was Ben Alexander a hugely successful Ford Dealer, he was also a well known actor who worked with Jack Webb in the 1950s Dragnet series. Google him.

Good luck Mike, but I’m not sure luck has a lot to do with the restoration of a great old car. Patients and attention to detail will be better than luck I think.

Options: This Galaxie has push-button radio and back-up lights (not sure if these were options, or standard.) Heater, also.
Comments: I believe that I am the third owner. It had been in Nebraska all of its life that I know of. An old gentleman who was a Ford dealer mechanic around Hastings, NE lovingly cared for it and mostly restored it. Either he or someone he trusted worked on this piece of Ford history. The underside is unmolested and rust-free, and the vinyl seats are original and in excellent shape. It has about 68,000 miles on the clock. I bought it from his daughter whom I assured that the Galaxie was going to an excellent home, and that its history of appearing in car shows would continue. I have had it about 2 1/2 months and it is now in storage near La Crosse, WI (I learned to drive in a 1962 Galaxie Fordor that my Dad bought new, which also was built in St Paul.)

Comments: Just bought the car in Dec. 2010. Car is a daily driver now. Needs a little TLC (paint job, bumpers rechromed, etc). Upholstery has been redone to a black and white vinyl. Previous owner was trying to convert it to a "rat rod", but I am trying to restore to a typical classic car that it should be. The car was bought off the show room floor in NC, but now the car is registered in Charleston, SC. Submitted by Burt Lawson, 01/12/2011.

 

No photo available.  459. VIN 2J64X135531, BODY 75A, COLOR A, TRIM 35, DATE 09A, DSO blank, AXLE 1, TRANS 4
Comments: I was not quite 8 years old when I "found" this car on the lot in downtown Los Angeles in 1962 while my parents were car shopping on my Mom's birthday. My folks drove it exclusively until they bought a 1966 Ford LTD in '66. This then became a second car. It eventually came into my possession after my father passed away and my mother's health declined. It is in the process of restoration as of January 2011. The car will be housed in Torrance California. Submitted by Paul Hill, 01/20/2011.

No photo available.  460. VIN 2U67Z142363, BODY 65B, COLOR V, TRIM 89, DATE 06D, DSO 22, AXLE 1, TRANS 4
Options: This car has a 390 4 bbl, Cruise-O-Matic drive, power steering, power brakes, fender skirts, radio, and whitewalls. I am installing factory Selectaire, and may install tinted glass. The original owners had the roof painted Corinthian white at the dealership after the car was delivered. The dealer also install stainless rain guards which run from the "A" pillar back to the "C" pillar.
Comments: This Galaxie has 70,000 original miles, and is in show condition, detailed inside and out, and underneath it is clean and detailed. Strangely this car never had a windshield washer installed, and only has single speed wipers. The original upholstery and door/quarter panels is stunning, with no loose seams or holes or scuff marks or wrinkles. According to the original owners guide, this car was sold by Alexander Motor Co. Inc., to Howard Judd, Route 8, PO Box 302, Sanford, North Carolina, on 10/11/62. The dealers name was Elaine Wilder. If anyone knows anything about this dealership, or these people, please email me. It appears this car never really left North Carolina, except for a few trips to Myrtle Beach and Spartenburg/Greer S.C. Submitted by Mike Stevens, 02/07/2011.
