It is the iconic 1959 Ford Skyliner retractable hardtop. Top works great! This particular example is California built finished in the best of color combinations, Torch Red over Colonial White and talk about equipment, this one has it. It begins with the always desirable power brakes and power steering add to that power windows, power seat, Philco Am push button radio, with wide white wall tires on painted steel wheel with Ford hubcaps, stainless skirts, and dual exhaust. The chrome, stainless, glass, and interior trim are very nice with some being original and some rechromed, and the underside is solid. We see these retractables occasionally, but rarely with this equipment level.

A Holley four-barrel carburetor and a compression ratio of 9.6:1 provided the car with 300hp, and the Cruise-O-Matic three-speed automatic transmission provided 'whisper quiet' shifting.The special retractable hardtop vehicles represented a novel innovation and are once again experiencing interest from manufacturers and automakers, and these Skyliners are still very much the subject of interest among Ford collectors to this day.
