We know why you're eying at this 1959 Ford Galaxie Skyliner. You'll overlook that this is a chrome-laden American classic in the perfect art deco color. No, ou're transfixed on that ultra cool electronic stow-away hard top that will make you a hit at plenty of car shows and cruise-ins to come. But there's a lot more to this one, o read on...This classic has had a respray of the factory color Indian Turquoise. It's the perfect '50s color that makes cruising down any Main Street feel like a drive down memory lane. But more than just the color, his Skyliner would not be half as attractive if all of the brightwork was not complete. This is truly amazing because this chrome can be described in acreage, nd its all there. It covers everything from the wide front bumpers and cool custom chrome headlights, o the taillights that were obviously inspired by the jet age. Of course the retractable hard top roof is the real reason why this is such a valued classic. It was the engineering sensation of its time, s multiple motors make it look like the trunk is swallowing the roof whole. There's nothing cooler at a car show then when one of these is stopped halfway up so we can all be in awe of this American marvel.With the roof down, veryone can see the sea of turquoise continued on the interior. The seats have been reupholstered during this Skyliner's lifetime. They carry a similar theme to the factory style, xcept now it has made way for the always cool tuck-n-roll style. The rest of the interior keeps quite close to factory specs too. It's a true '50s design, o there's plenty of stylized chrome running across the dash, oor panels, nd even between the rear bench seat. It even keeps the original heat/defrost controls, nd AM radio. Just like today's hardtop convertibles, aving the roof down doesn't mean losing your entire trunk. There is still luggage space in the neat little cave that the stowed hardtop creates.Under the hood is what all Ford people love to see in their '59s. This car is specified to have an H-code, 52 cubic-inch "Thunderbird Special" V8, nd that's exactly what's sitting in the engine bay. This one has the added power and reliability of a brand new Edelbrock Performer carburetor, ith an electric choke, nd electric fuel pump. This motor has the kind of displacement that gives off a muscular V8 rumble from the dual exhaust system. With a three-speed automatic transmission and power steering, his Skyliner is your all-day cruiser.Ford only offered this retractable option from 1957 to 1959, nd the final year cars like this one were the rarest, nd most refined. You'll get plenty of attention at all the events, nd if people start to ask more questions, ou'll have restoration receipts and the owner's manual to back it all up. So, on't miss your chance to pick up the ultimate 1950s collectible. Call today!!
