1962 Ford Galaxie 2dr.Sedan 67k Original miles A true 'Barn Find', but in a dry building in Moody, AL. brought in from Wyoming (no salt)20-25 years ago. Factory ordered 352/2v-3 speed/ Overdrive (works) and a 356 Rear end! Has/had two 2" rust (through) spots (one fixed and cut-out saved to show) at bottom of front fenders AND THAT IS IT ON THE WHOLE CAR ! Floors, trunk, hood-door bottoms and deck lips (foldovers), are excellent as are wheel wells, body mounts, rockers and inner fenders. All are rust free. The 67,712 miles is REAL. The car was started from time to time, brakes done, dual exhaust and 4 new radials (Zero miles) when someone decided to start stripping the original red paint and got about 1/2 done and stopped? The right passenger door has a 'wow' that a body man could fix in a few hours. I would just leave it. The quarters are perfectly straight and wheel wells never cut for larger tires. All trim is good and bumpers will clean up good. They have some dings but not bad for a 56 year old car. We thought about shooting a primer paint job, but many people think you are trying to hide something that way. I'm 76, had HUNDREDS of cars and I would just 'Clear-coat' it and drive as-is or make a 406 'look alike Sleeper' out of it.
It had all new tune up parts, but had a miss. Upon checking, one cylinder had 'O' compression and all others 150-155 or so. Apparently one valve stuck and bent and they gave up on the 'resto'. Enter the 'Y' Block (and FE) 'Guru', Jerry Ponder to do a valve job (cylinders are excellent) to get it 'purring like a kitten'. Engine has the original air-cleaner, fuel filter, generator end cover and even the original 'FoMoCo' washer bag. Starts right up, runs-shifts and stops GREAT (NO shift linkage play).
