The Ford Fairlane Skyliner 500 is truly automotive history, the first domestic (and second ever, after the 1938 Peugeot 402) mass-produced convertible with retractable hardtop. The retractable hardtop was at the time exclusive to Ford, marketed as the “Hide-Away Hardtop”. This 1959 model enjoyed the loving care of one family for over 60 years!! It was garage-kept the entire time, driven very few miles over the last 30 years. The entire drivetrain, plus brakes & various other components, were rebuilt or restored 11 years ago, and everything is still in great shape! The car wears its original paint & brightwork, which show minor blemishes consistent with a 63 year old vehicle! Interior is clean & functional, with futuristic trim features that compliment the awesome state-of-the-art retractable hardtop!! A unique feature of this vehicle are the twin tow bar attachments permanently affixed to the front frame members, added by the owner back in the ‘80s, that accommodate flat-towing with the driveshaft removed. Cruise this beauty around your favorite locations, or hit the open road towing it from show-to-show – either way, this 1959 Ford Fairlane Skyliner 500 Convertible will attract attention wherever you go!!
