We know why you're checking out this 1959 Ford Galaxie Skyliner.
It's not just that this is a chrome-laden American classic in an
ideal art deco color combo. It's also that 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 classic is presented in its factory-correct two-tone Wedgewood
Blue and Colonial White. This is a high-quality modern respray that
makes sure this stays as vivid as your nostalgia. So this is the
ideal 1950s 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. The extra wide front bumper
frames the grille that looks like a starry night; the sweeping side
trim makes for an ideal two-tone separation and highlights the
straightness of the body; the rear fender skirts even join the
brightwork; and the rear bumper helps cradle the tail lights that
were inspired by the jet age. Oh yes, this is an impressive and
award-worthy presentation. 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 blue 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 is 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 where
your cargo goes. It's this level of detail that will draw praise
from even fickle Ford fans.
Underneath the sporty forward-tilt hood is the correct H-code 352
cubic-inch V8. It has that great period-correct appearance with the
big Thunderbird Special air grabber on top, and it matches the FORD
logo valve covers. The radiator, wires, master cylinder, and so
much more has a clean well-presented look that tells you this one
has been under the right maintenance. It translates to 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 power steering, three-speed automatic
transmission, power brakes, and upgraded front discs. There's even
a modern tread behind the classic whitewalls. So you know this
impressive classic was made for cruising.
Ford only offered this retractable hardtop option from 1957 to
1959, and these final-year cars are the rarest and most refined.
Beyond that, you know this one is a cut above with its impressive
presentation. This is the complete American classic stunner you've
always wanted. Call today!!!
