1959 Ford Galaxie Skyliner HT - Utah Showroom

Part of the Ford Fairlane 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. The Skyliner top has six electric motors (only five for 1959 models), four lift jacks, a series of relays, ten solenoidsand four locking mechanisms for the roof

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, Galaxies carried both “Fairlane 500” and “Galaxie” badging, on the rear and sides respectively At the time of its introduction, the Skyliner was the only true hardtop convertible in the world. Today, it has become a collectible car.

This fully restored Galaxie Skyliner is a very highly-optioned car. It features the newly introduced "FE" series V-8 with Cruisomatic transmission, factory Select-Aire conditioning, power widows and seats as well as power steering and brakes. Accessoreies include stainless steel fender skirts, bumper guards and rear Continental kit.
