1959 Ford Galaxie Skyliner Retractable Hardtop

352 cid overhead valve V8 rated at 300 horsepower, Cruise-O-Matic three-speed automatic transmission, power-assisted four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes; wheelbase: 119.0"

It was one of the most talked about cars of the 1950s, a mechanical marvel, the idea of taking a full size hardtop and converting it to an open car in just seconds and with the flick of a switch was simply amazing. Produced for just three model years, the engineering and design was near perfection. 1959 would be the last year for this remarkable model and just 12,915 copies were produced. This example is a west-coast car, having been assembled at the San Jose, California, assembly plant. Finished in Ford's famous Style-tone paint scheme of red and white, it features a red vinyl and matching cloth interior. It also has radio, heater-defroster, clock and that big-block Interceptor V8 engine. Other appointments include rear-deck spare tire carrier, Sunburst full wheel covers, and much more. Given a frame-on restoration a few years back.
