Take a look at this BEAUTIFUL !! - VERY RARE !! - 43,146 ACTUAL ORIGINAL MILE SURVIVOR !! - 1959 Ford Galaxie Skyliner Retractable Two Door Hardtop ! I say VERY RARE as they only built 12,915 Skyliners in 1959! If you have never watched the power "retractable" convertible top go down on these cars you need to watch the attached video of this car !! TOO COOL and remember this is 1959 technology !! We just purchased this Galaxie Skyliner from the previous older California owner who had owned it for many years and as you can tell it was his pride and joy for sure! This is a NICE - DRY - SOLID - California - Idaho High Mountain Desert - Western car and it shows! It only has 43,146 ACTUAL ORIGINAL MILES since brand new and yes we do have an odometer statement from the previous owner !! I drove this car as my daily driver for the last several days and it runs and drives VERY WELL! This Ford Galaxie Skyliner Retractable Two Door Hardtop is a sweet driver in town and cruises down the freeway at 75+ mph easily and smoothly. 1959 was the last and they tell me the best year of the Skyliner Retractables !! If you can make it to Boise please come take a look at and drive this BEAUTY for yourself. This is a QUALITY CLASSIC CAR THAT IS READY TO DRIVE, SHOW AND ENJOY!

At the heart of this BEAUTY is the VERY STRONG !! - Appears Original - Optional Code "H" - 352 CID V8 (300 Horsepower from the factory!!) motor that is running VERY well indeed. The motor also sports the ORIGINAL 4 barrel intake manifold, ORIGINAL exhaust manifolds, ORIGINAL "Ford" scripted valve covers, dual feed Holley 4 barrel carburetor and the ORIGINAL air cleaner housing, Etc... . Sounds GREAT too with the factory style true dual exhaust system with chrome tips that was replaced last year from the exhaust manifolds back. The engine is backed by a SMOOTH - Three speed - "Cruise-O-Matic" - automatic transmission that also functions very well. The Tri Tone Fawn Tan Cloth with Radiant Bronze and Colonial White Vinyl interior is in VERY NICE !! condition including a NICE Fawn Tan cloth with Radiant Bronze and Colonial White vinyl front bench seat, VERY NICE Fawn Tan cloth with Radiant Bronze and Colonial White vinyl rear seat, VERY NICE Brown carpeting, VERY NICE Matching Fawn Tan cloth with Radiant Bronze and Colonial White vinyl door panels, NICE ORIGINAL steering wheel, VERY NICE ORIGINAL Colonial White Headliner, NICE ORIGINAL Factory gauge clusters including a 120mph speedometer and a VERY NICE ORIGINAL Radiant Bronze dash !! All of the black rubber weatherstripping is soft, supple & in good condition. The Two Tone Colonial White and Tahitian Bronze exterior finish is EYE POPPING BEAUTIFUL !! showing some very small chips and some imperfections but is still bright and shiny and looks STUNNING ! as you can clearly see in the video above & 100 ADDITIONAL PICTURES! Colonial White and Tahitian Bronze exterior with a VERY NICE Fawn Tan Cloth with Radiant Bronze and Colonial White vinyl Galaxie Skyliner interior is a GREAT color combination indeed, how could it get any better on a 1959 Galaxie Skyliner Retractable Two Door Hardtop ?! This Skyliner comes nicely equipped including WORKING FACTORY "FRIGIKING" AIR CONDITIONING, factory power steering, factory power wipers, factory front wing windows, factory gauge clusters with 120 MPH speedometer, factory power "retractable" hardtop, working original AM radio, original clock which is no longer working, good heater and defroster and the original dual chrome remote side view exterior mirrors. There are not many of these BEAUTIES left on the roads for sure!

The suspension and drive line seem to be in good working order as well as the electrical system. Check out the AWESOME - FACTORY ORIGINAL - Ford Galaxie Stainless Steel wheel covers and BF Goodrich Wide whitewall steel belted radial tires from Coker with very few miles on them, they look OUTSTANDING on this Skyliner Retractable & really retains that CLEAN "Factory Original" look! All of the ORIGINAL exterior body trim and moldings are in NICE condition including NICE ORIGINAL badging, NICE ORIGINAL Chrome front & rear bumpers and NICE ORIGINAL Stainless Steel Grill & Headlight surrounds. The CLEAN - SOLID trunk also sports a full size spare tire and the ORIGINAL metal storage bin. All of the ORIGINAL light lenses & reflectors are clear, bright and BEAUTIFUL! This vehicle is in GREAT mechanical condition and it runs and drives VERY WELL! It is solid with respect to the overall mechanical condition as well as the overall cosmetic impression. Again, this is a NICE - DRY - SOLID - California - Idaho High Mountain Desert - western car! In my opinion you won't find much nicer ORIGINAL FLOORS than the ones on this BEAUTY !! Please pay close attention to the video above & THE 100 ADDITIONAL PICTURES and this description as they will answer your questions.
