62 Fairlane Sports Coupe?

Hi Guys,

Jim from Virginia here. New to this forum. I guess I can start out by asking a few questions. I have a 1962 Fairlane 500, but it is not original. I was hoping to find out a few things so here it goes:

1) It has the 3 chrome bullets on the side, does that make it a sport coupe?
2) Instead of the original bucket seats, it now has 1963 Thunderbird bucket seats---I think mine originally may have had bench but I can't confirm.
3) The engine is a 260, but now has a cam, edelbrock carb and holley intake, glass pak exhaust---that engine has been in the car for about 9 years--runs/sounds great. The original engine was also a 260.
4) I've researched the VIN number and keep coming up with it being coded as a convertible....is this a common mistake? It's a 2dr hardtop.

Finally, I'm thinking of selling it. It has rusty quarter panels--about the bottom 2-3 inches are rusted pretty bad and it has a 12 inch dent across the top where a tree came to rest on it--not too hard to fix. New carpet, original back seats, trunk and floor panels no rust, a very straight good looking car with no grill or chrome issues. Curious as to what this might bring if I sell it. Any help would be appreciated- jimatbeach@gmail.com Thanks!
