  This page is 1962 History stats:. Have a look at what was happening back in 1962 when this car was being built. The first three pictures is the original 1962 PA title, front and back page. The names have be removed, for obvious reasons. The original dealer bill of sale is also included. The first owners was so nice to make me a color copy of the original bill of sale. I thank them for it.

  Back in 1962 history of national news, movies, and such. They are listed here for you to see what was happening as this car was being built. You can click the picture to see the bigger picture.

  The original Bill Of Sale to this car. I am the second owner. The names and address are removed for obvious reasons. Check out the total price and the options that were ordered... Funny, these options are standard in cars now.

  This was a year where seat belts were an option, and this customer diden't order them. Good thing because back then there were no sholder belts. Lap belts along can break your back. You have a better chance of surviving a crash without seat belts in this car.

The "Code" number is. "62" the year built, "227" is the 227th off the line. Yes, it's a low serial number.

  The dealer is out of business, as far as I can check. There is nothing on them when doing a Google search. I contacted Ford to see if I can get a duplicate window price sticker. They referred me to a web site that sells them, however, only from the years 2000... I am looking.

  The original Penna. front side of the Title from 1962 to this car. I am the second owner. The names and address are removed for obvious reasons.

  When I changed the car over to my name in the DMV, the people at the DMV were amazed, and they said the notary isen't necessary anymore here. There were a few workers there whom took a look at the title. I asked for a copy of the title, and she made me this copy.

  What is with "The Department of Revenue"? Emcumbrances?. What?. I actually had to read this several times to understand where we should sign, and if anything else is needed. The DMV here was amazed also. it's not everyday you have a look at a vehicle title from 1962...

  The original 1962 back side of the Title. Look at all the places a notary would put the stamp(s). Amazing... Now a days, notaries are only used for other purposes then, and I quote: "Just a title". Basicly, all I needed from the first owner was their signature. I did look the title over several times before desiding where they should sign. The 1962 Title is drawn up like a lawyers papers..

Some of the main headlines in the news in 1962. It amazing to discover all that was going on in 62. It was a "happening" year... LOL... Racial, Politics, the war, unrest. Do a Google search and you'll see what was happening back then.

I am from Philly, and a fan of the old WIBG radio 99.

  This is quite a treasure. This sheet was released on May 7th 1962. The car was sold from the lot on July 7, 1962. I was 7 years old at that time.

  When the car goes to shows. I am planning on a hidden CD player in the car, playing these old songs with WIBG's jingles in between while people are browsing the cars. I plan to wear 1962 atire. leasure?. Probally Hippy..... Yup, beads and all...

  It's a bit funny, that all those songs and many more from 1962 I played on my record player and the radio station(s) I was involved with in the 70's. if you do a search for the year and see what hits there were week after week.. We all know them, even the teens of today, most of them anyway.
