What you see here is a show stopping 1962 Galaxie 500 G-Code. If you are in the market for a rare piece of factory prepped race history, then look no further. This Galaxie rolled off the line in Los Angeles with the G-Code Thunderbird 406 CID Super High-Performance V8 under the hood. This engine was offered strictly as a homologation special for NHRA Super Stock drag racing. Offered in two versions, this top spec Super High-Performance boasted 11.41 compression, triple Holley 2-barrel carburetors, and factory headers leading to dual exhaust. Ford rated the Super High-Performance 406 at 405hp and 448lb-ft of torque.
As expected, the Tri-Power 406 was aimed at squarely at serious drivers. Heavy Duty suspension, brakes, and 15-inch wheels were all included with the package, and the Borg-Warner toploader 4-speed manual was a mandatory option, because even the Cruise-O-Matic couldn’t handle the torque. As is typical with these racing homologation specials, there were many things that could not be ordered on the car such as air conditioning, deluxe wheel covers, power steering, power brakes, chrome engine bay dress up, or automatic transmission.
The example you see here is presented in the correct Oxford Blue over blue interior with optional all vinyl trim, and was equipped with the mandatory 4.11 rear end. It is one of 9 Tudor Club Victoria’s hardtop coupes with the Tri-Power 406 known to the ’62 Galaxie Registry. This two-owner California car underwent a full concours-level restoration less than 300 miles ago and it looks better than the day it was new. This is a rare chance to own a piece of history.
