1959 Ford Galaxie Skyliner RetractableWe know why you're eying at this 1959 Ford Galaxie Skyliner. It's not just that this is a chrome-laden American classic in the perfect art deco color combo. It's also you'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. So it's awesome to find such a well-restored and well-presented example like this.
This classic is presented in its factory-correct two-tone Sherwood Green and Colonial White. This is a high-quality modern respray that makes sure the white is bright and the hint of metallic in the green loves the sunshine. It's a vivid as your nostalgia. So this is the ideal '50s color combo that makes cruising down any Main Street feel like a drive down memory lane. But more than just the color, this Skyliner would not be half as attractive if all of the brightwork was not this complete. It covers everything from the wide front bumpers and cool custom chrome headlights, to the taillights that were obviously inspired by the jet age. There's even a continental kit to give added style and length to this classic Ford. 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, as 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, everyone can see the green and white theme continued on the interior. Just like the exterior, there have been solid investments inside to keep this looking quite stock but feeling far fresher. For example, the seats have been reupholstered, but that intricate style with the two-tone and comfy cloth inserts are pure 1950s flair. Everything from the texture of the door panels to the Ford family crest in the center of the steering wheel has that awesome classic feeling. Even the AM radio is still working! Just like today's hardtop convertibles, having 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, and this even still has the correct box to show you were your cargo goes.
Underneath the sporty forward-tilt hood is the correct B-code 332 cubic-inch V8. It has that great period-correct appearance with the big air cleaner on top, and it matches the FORD logo valve covers. The belts, hoses, wires, mater cylinder, and so much more has a clean a well-presented look that tells you this one has been under the right maintenance. It translates to a smooth performance and plenty of torque to move the big coupe/convertible without working very hard. This one also has some great driving features such as the power steering, three-speed automatic transmission, power brakes, and upgraded front discs. While those make it a nice cruising machine, all everyone will see are those correct Ford hubcaps and tall classic whitewall tires.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual. Ford only offered this retractable option from 1957 to 1959, and the final year cars like this one were the rarest and only ones to carry the Galaxie badge. So, don't miss your chance to pick up the ultimate 1950s collectible. Call today!!!
