The Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner is a two-door full-size Retractable convertible, manufactured and marketed by Ford Motor Company for model years 1957-1959. For model year 1959, the name changed to Ford Fairlane 500 Galaxie Skyliner very shortly after production began. The retractable roof mechanism, marketed as the "Hide-Away Hardtop," was unique to Ford branded products, and was not offered on the Continental Lincoln, Mercury, or Edsel branded vehicles. A total of 48,394 were manufactured. Falling in Ford's Fairlane 500 range, the Skyliner Retractable was only the second car in history to be mass-produced with a retractable hardtop; the first to reach four-and five-digit mass-production numbers, and the first series produced Coupe Convertible to feature a roof using two segments.
