Car Puzzle: These 1962 Cars Share Something. What Is It?

Think you know your cars? Prove it!


Nineteen sixty-two was a fine year for General Motors and Ford. And Chrysler? Not so good, but we love ’em anyway. Below we have four cars that are for sale on AutoHunter or that have something in common, and my hint is that it’s not the bucket seats. Think more in terms with marketing.

Post your answer in the comments section below. If you’re able to identify the makes and models, all the better!

Diego Rosenberg
Lead Writer Diego Rosenberg is a native of Wilmington, Delaware and Princeton, New Jersey, giving him plenty of exposure to the charms of Carlisle and Englishtown. Though his first love is Citroen, he fell for muscle cars after being seduced by 1950s finned flyers—in fact, he’s written two books on American muscle. But please don’t think there is a strong American bias because foreign weirdness is never far from his heart. With a penchant for underground music from the 1960-70s, Diego and his family reside in the Southwest.


  1. I think Denny has it right. They all were sporty(ish) small bodies with engines more powerful than those bodies would dictate. And, as Denny states, newly named.

  2. Alright, here’s the answer:

    They’re all early adopters to the buckets-and-console premium models that were starting to pop up. Some of them leaned towards the personal-luxury side as influenced by the Thunderbird, while the Polara 500 was merely hopping on the trend.

    I’m happy to entertain counterpoint if this was not the most logical of puzzles. 🙂

  3. Dale, it’s more about personal-luxury than just the buckets and console. Perhaps the Polara 500 is the odd man out, but I sought to show early personal-luxury vehicles.
