For Sale: 1959 Ford Fairlane in Lavergne, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

We know why you're eying at this 1959 Ford Fairlane 500 Galaxie Skyliner. It's a chrome-laden American classic built in a timeless color and finished with the right level of classic-style presentation/preservation. But what really made you stop on this vintage V8 machine is that you know it has that ultra-cool electronic stow-away hardtop that will make you a hit at plenty of car shows and cruise-ins to come.

This classic has had a respray of the factory-correct Raven Black. It was resprayed later in life to make sure it has a good gloss in the sunshine, but it has aged in well enough to not be too flashy. After all, if you're going to take a car like this out for a drive, you want it to be fun and approachable. The same tone goes for the brightwork. It's clean, complete, and preserved more than overly restored. It covers everything from the wide front bumper to the taillights that were obviously inspired by the jet age. And this premium Galaxie has a stylish side trim that also includes polished rear fender skirts. Of course, the retractable hardtop 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 than 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 stylish red and white interior. The seats have been reupholstered during this Skyliner's lifetime. They are the centerpiece of the inside with a nice tuck and roll style insert. The rest of the interior keeps quite close to factory specs. It's a true '50s design, so there's plenty of stylized chrome running across the dash and door panels. It even keeps the original heat/defrost controls, and the AM radio is there for display. 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 box that shows you where it's safe to put your gear (a detail often missing from many of these.)

Under the hood is an honest and correct-style engine bay. Vintage fans will love everything from the big air grabber to the blue Ford script valve covers. But this 332 cubic-inch V8 has also been well maintained, including an upgraded Flamethrower ignition. This motor has the kind of displacement that gives off a muscular V8 rumble from the dual exhaust system. Plus, with an automatic transmission and power steering, this Skyliner is your all-day cruiser.

Ford only offered this retractable option from 1957 to 1959, and the final year cars like this one were the rarest and most refined. So if you like getting all the attention, don't miss your chance to pick up the ultimate 1950s collectible. Call today!!!
