Vehicle Description

'59 Ford Galaxie Sunliner Retractable, Indian Turquoise and Colonial white exterior. This model is so amazing that Ford gave it 4 names! First, it's a full-size Ford. It was the top of the Fairlane line, the Fairlane 500 and its model designation is Skyliner as opposed to "Sunliner", which was Ford's ordinary soft-top convertible. And finally, to separate it further from an ordinary Fairlane 500, Ford created the Galaxie model designation mid-year and added it to this series. So, this significant and highly collectible automobile is a Ford Fairlane 500 Galaxie Skyliner. Only 12k were built, so it's also one rare Ford! Even though this car looks like a true hardtop, its top is fully retractable this advanced design was produced in 1957, 1958 and 1959. Its sophisticated mechanism folds the roof and retracts it under the rear deck lid.
