The Vintage Spoke 785-263-1948thevintagespoke. comWe accept paypalExperienced Seller1959 Ford Galaxie This 1959 Skyliner has been Ford dealer owned for around 45 years. it is stunning in every fashion. all functions work and runs and drives just as expected. Have all the parts for the factory AC. Paint and chrome are excellent. the interior is stunning. no disappointments with this one.   Original low miles at 79. 74 This car features the 300 HP 352CI V8 Engine 

The Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner (Retractable) is a two-door American full-size car with a retractable hardtop which was produced by Ford in the United States for the model years 1957. 1958 and 1959. In 1959 the model name changed to Ford Galaxie Skyliner very shortly after the production of 1959 models had started. The retractable roof mechanism - also known as "Hide-Away Hardtop"  was unique to Ford branded products. and was not offered on Continental. Lincoln. Mercury. or Edsel branded vehicles during this time period.

The Ford Skyliner Retractable was only the second car in history to be series produced with a retractable hardtop; the first to reach four and five digit production numbers. and the first series produced coupé convertible to feature a roof composed of more than one segment.

Part of the Ford Fairlane 500 range. the Skyliner had a complex mechanism which folded the front of the roof and retracted it under the rear decklid. No hydraulic mechanisms were used as in regular convertibles of the era.  Production totaled 20. 66 units in 1957. declining to 14. 13 in 1958 and to 12. 15 in 1959.  An electric clock was standard.  Fuel consumption was around 14 mpg‑US (17 L/100 km; 17 mpg‑imp) overall.  The fuel tank was placed vertically in back of the rear seat. which inadvertently added safety in rear collisions.

The wheelbase of the Skyliner was 118 in (3. 00 mm) and the overall length was 210. 8 in (5. 50 mm).

During the 1959 model year the Galaxie series was added to Ford's full-size range and the Skyliner model was absorbed into that series. Although the 1959 Galaxie was designated as a separate series. alaxies carried both “Fairlane 500” and “Galaxie” badging. on the rear and sides respectively.  It came with the standard 292CID 2-barrel 200 hp V8.

At the time of its introduction. the Skyliner was the only true hardtop convertible in the world. a rel="rel nofollow" href="https://en. wikipedia. org/wiki/Ford_Fairlane_500_Skyliner#cite_note-12">] Today. it has become a collectible car.

The design attracted more attention than sales; the option was expensive. suspected to be unreliable. and took up almost all the trunk space when retracted. It required the roof to be made shorter than the other Fords. and the trunk to be larger. This was because the design was originally to be a Continental coupe Projected losses of the retractable roof Continental resulted in a decision to restyle the vehicle. from the bottom of the windows down. as a member of the Fairlane 500 family because it could attract more buyers as a Ford with more reasonable retail price compared to adding extra costs to the already expensive retail price of a Lincoln Continental.  The solid roof pillar of the Skyliner is the similar to the appearance of 2nd generation Ford Thunderbirds of 1958-1960.
