3 ’62 Fords: Galaxie 500, T-Bird, Continental

June 2, 2011 § 1 Comment

Some elegant-looking 1962 Fords. Please click to enlarge.

This is a 1962 ad from a German magazine. Not sure what it says, but they sure look good.

If you’re not a big indie music fan and/or aren’t aware of the seminal late-’80s/early-’90s guitar band Galaxie 500, check them out here. They were great.

§ One Response to 3 ’62 Fords: Galaxie 500, T-Bird, Continental

  • R Kitsune says:

    This ad actually stems from Ford Switzerland – in Germany, these cars were never offered officially (although you sure could order them via the local dealer or Ford Germany).

    Here’s the translation:

    “FORD GALAXIE – An unusual car. A powerful FORD with that fascinating harmony of lines which represent a timeless elegance…with that maximum in comfort and equipment meaning top class.”

    “FORD THUNDERBIRD – Behind the wheel of the Thunderbird you’ll believe breezing over the road. Mountains becoming flat hills, tight corners wide bends. Easily you will master the hot temperament of the powerful machine. Driving the proud Thunderbird will become a unique experience.”

    “LINCOLN CONTINENTAL – a masterpiece inch by inch. Modern, dynamic elegance in classic perfection. Technical brilliance in highest perfection. – The exclusive vehicle for the elites of the grand world”.

    “Ford Galaxie, Ford Thunderbird, Lincoln Continental are now being built for longer inspection intervals: maintenance service only twice a year!”

    Seems like Ford didn’t had it smaller these days…on the other hand, vehicles from the USA were quite popular in Switzerland, and GM even owned a factory (mostly assembling CKD kits of various subsidiaries) in Biel/Bienne until 1968.
