The 1959 Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner was a stunning body style in 1959 with its power retractable - "Hide-Away" - hardtop and still is some 58 years later !! The retractable hardtop operation was a mechanical symphony orchestrated by 4 lock motors, 4 lift jacks, 10 relays, 3 drive motors, 10 limit switches, 8 circuit breakers and an extra 610 feet of wiring !! We recently purchased this Skyliner Retractable from the daughter of the ORIGINAL OWNER who was her father !! She inherited this BEAUTY 25 years ago when her father passed away and as you can tell in the pictures and video it was the family's pride and joy !! She told us that the odometer reading of 96,140 miles were the actual original miles however the odometer/speedometer stopped working shortly after we purchased the car and we had to have it replaced with a rebuilt working unit. It still retains it's correctly mounted - FACTORY ORIGINAL - driver's door pillar mounted Ford data / VIN plate which is shown in a picture. This is a NICE - DRY - SOLID - Washington state - Idaho High Mountain Desert - Western car and it shows! I drove this car for the last several days as my everyday driver and it ran and drove GREAT !! If you can make it to Boise in the next ten days please come drive and look this BEAUTY over for yourself, you won't be disappointed ! THIS IS A QUALITY CAR THAT IS READY TO DRIVE, SHOW AND ENJOY !! At the heart of this Skyliner is what appears to be the VERY STRONG !! - FACTORY ORIGINAL !! - OPTIONAL - Code "H" - (300 HORSEPOWER FROM THE FACTORY !!) - 352 CID V8 "Interceptor Thunderbird Special" motor that is running VERY well and also sports the ORIGINAL 4 barrel intake manifold, ORIGINAL exhaust manifolds, ORIGINAL "Ford" scripted valve covers, ORIGINAL "Interceptor" scripted air cleaner housing and the ORIGINAL 4 barrel carburetor. Sounds GREAT too with the factory style true dual exhaust system with dual chrome tips. The engine is backed by a SMOOTH - ORIGINAL - Code "4" - "Cruise-O-Matic" - three speed - automatic transmission which is also functioning very well. The BEAUTIFUL !! - NEW - Code "56" - Torch Red Sof-Textured Vinyl and Raven Black Fabric Galaxie Skyliner interior is in VERY NICE !! condition including a VERY NICE NEW Torch Red Sof-Textured Vinyl and Raven Black Fabric front bench seat, VERY NICE NEW Black carpeting, NICE ORIGINAL Galaxie steering wheel, VERY NICE NEW Matching Torch Red and Raven Black Vinyl door panels, VERY NICE ORIGINAL Factory gauge clusters, VERY NICE NEW Colonial White Vinyl headliner, NICE ORIGINAL White Vinyl sun visors and a VERY NICE NEW Torch Red Sof-Textured Vinyl and Raven Black Fabric Silver Vinyl rear seat. All of the black rubber weatherstripping is soft, supple and in good condition. The BEAUTIFUL - Code "AE2" - Two Tone - Raven Black and Colonial White exterior finish is EYE POPPING BEAUTIFUL !! showing some very small chips and imperfections that have been touched up but still looks GORGEOUS as you can clearly see in the VIDEO & 100 ADDITIONAL PICTURES !! This Skyliner Retractable Hardtop comes nicely equipped including factory power steering, factory power wipers, factory front wing windows, original chrome driver's side view exterior mirror, factory front seat belts, factory power wipers, factory gauge clusters with 120 MPH speedometer, good heater and defroster, working factory power "Hide-Away" retractable hardtop, original clock which is no longer working, original AM radio which is no longer working and factory back up lights. This Skyliner Retractable Hardtop has GORGEOUS looks and AWESOME 352 "Interceptor" V8 power as well... what's not to love ?!

All of the ORIGINAL Chrome and Stainless Steel exterior body trim and moldings are in GOOD condition including NICE ORIGINAL badging, NICE ORIGINAL Chrome front and rear bumpers and NICE ORIGINAL Chrome and Stainless Steel Grill and headlight surrounds !!
