The Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner Retractable Hardtop was the second car in automotive history that was mass produced with the retractable hardtop. In 1959, the name was changed to Ford Fairlane 500 Galaxie Skyliner.  

 

This is a very good-looking Ford with excellent paint, interior, and mechanics.

 

The exterior is red and white, and the paint is very sharp. Body is straight and all trim and chrome present in excellent condition. An added touch of elegance is the Continental Kit. The retractable hardtop is in excellent working condition.

 

Interior is a new red and white interior by ABC.  Dash has been repainted and a new padded dash was added. The carpet is new as well. All interior trim is in great condition. The factory gauges are backed up with Aftermarket gauges (under dash) showing oil pressure, temperature, and voltage.

 

Engine is the H Code 352 CID and is paired with the original 3-speed automatic transmission. Both engine and transmission have been rebuilt. Prior owner added an aluminum radiator and transmission cooler so the car shifts very smoothly.

 

Options include heater, electric wipers and radio. 

 

New:  weather stripping all the way around, new brakes, a top of the line rebuilt front end by Kanter. All front-end components were replaces except for the A arms which are in great shape.

 

This car is tight and solid and drives with excellent performance. Last summer it was driven in 100° heat over mountain passes of 9000 ft elevation with no issues.

 

Prior owner collected retractable hardtop Fords and this car came out of his collection. Car resides in Wyoming and available for viewing by appointment.
