This is the classic that impresses everyone. You can simply pull into the car show with this 1959 Ford Galaxie Skyliner and watch the crowds gather as you operate America's first mass-produced electronic hardtop convertible. Of course because this is a full-size V8 Ford, ou can skip the car show altogether and just enjoy the day cruising.Even without its attention-grabbing roof, his coupe/convertible is an attractive classic. The car has had recent respray of its very American color, nd you'll get a kick out of telling people that the striking two-tone is Indian Turquoise mixed in harmony with Colonial White. The styling still looks amazing today, ith quad headlights and the wide chrome grille up front. There's pristine brightwork running down the side that also provides the dividing line for the two colors. It all ends in a rear end that looks inspired by the original Thunderbird, nd a continental kit for that extra long touch of class. Of course the retractable hard top roof is the real reason why this is such a valuable 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 so we can all be in awe of this American marvel.Having the roof stowed not only is a cool process, ut it also gives everyone a look at the amazing interior. It came from the factory 56 years ago in this same interesting teal, ith insets of turquoise and white. The overall impression is a distinctive look that still complements the exterior. It is a true '50s design, o there's plenty of stylized chrome running across the dash, oor panels, nd even between the rear bench seat. 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.Pop the hood, nd you'll see a very nice upgrade. The Thunderbird name on the valve covers is not a liar, ecause this Galaxie had been given the 352 cubic-inch "Thunderbird Special" V8. This is the full-size Ford's period-correct powerplant for the top-of-the-line in 1959. It looks especially nice with the air cleaner and valve covers painted to match the car body. This motor has the kind of displacement that gives off a muscular V8 rumble from the dual exhaust system. But this is not the car you buy to do burnouts. With a three-speed automatic transmission, ower brakes, nd power steering, his Skyliner is your all-day cruiser, nd boy is she smooth.Ford only offered this option from 1957 to 1959, nd the final year cars like this one were the rarest and most refined. So, on't miss your chance to pick up the ultimate 1950s collectable. Call today!!
