VEHICLE INFO

JUST ARRIVED :

Can you say UNIQUE ! The original Galaxie "SKYLINER" with a retractable hardtop.
At the time of its introduction, the Skyliner was the only true hardtop convertible in the world.

Today, it has become a collectible car.

In keeping with the era, the 1959 Galaxie was a chrome and stainless steel-bedecked vehicle with optional two-tone paint. It was the very image of the ostentatious late-1950s American automobiles, though somewhat tamer than its Chevrolet and Plymouth competitors. Ford advertised "safety anchorage" for the front seats. The parking brake was now a pedal. Seat belts, a padded dashboard, and child-proof rear door locks were optional, while a deep-dished steering wheel and double-door locks were standard.
Own a piece of late 50's futuristic technology that can still be enjoyed and appreciated in today's classic car culture !
Among the models was the Skyliner, moved upward from the Fairlane 500 model, and featuring a retractable hardtop that folded down into the trunk space. This feature, complicated and expensive, left very little trunk room when folded down. Power retractable hardtops have since been used by luxury manufacturers such as Mercedes-Benz, Lexus, and Cadillac, but in all these cases the vehicle was a two-seater, allowing a much smaller top mechanism than the Skyliner's. Not until 2006, when the Pontiac G6 convertible, Peugeot 206 CC (in Europe) and Volkswagen Eos appeared, did another mass-market model with a rear seat appear in this category.
A fixture also was the previous year's 352 V8, 4bbl still developing 300 horsepower (220 kW).
