AUTOCHOICE Is Yours Dot Com, LLC proudly resents to the global community a very rare piece, literally in pieces.  This 1959 Ford Fairlane Skyliner Hardtop / Convertible was purchased by this owner's husband some years ago for a project to bring back to its original "rare" beauty!  The wife said in jest, after he had torn it town, "You better not die on me" and wouldn't you know it, that's exactly what he did, died on her.  That isn't funny, but it is what it is, a basket case literally.  In the beginning process he purchased scores of needed parts, like chrome strips weather-stripping, and miscellaneous parts to set aside for the restoration process.  Being a life long body man, he was looking forward to bringing back this rare Skyliner back to life.  But that obviously didn't happen.  It's now available for you, the next owner to enjoy the fruits of his labor and bring life back to its rare beauty.  We tried to capture everything that was in boxes and other parts so the potential owner can see the condition of the parts.  It was brought to my attention the engine ran and the top worked, although I wasn't able to see that happen in the research and photo phase.  There is no knowledge of how good the engine is or if the transmission works.  Some of the hardest items to find are good chrome pieces.  A lot of them look like they are brand new.  Some of the items are still in the original shipping boxes.  The seats appear to be just like what came from the factory and look like they did.  A lot of work has already been done for the next person to finish.  The new owner will need to have a shipping company that has a winch to be able to load the car and also lots of inside room to store the parts in the shipping process.  For any questions please call Don at (509) 301-1498.  If your looking for a good project...this may be the car for you.

The Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner (Retractable) is a two-door American full-size car with a retractable hardtop which was produced by Ford in the United States for the model years 1957, 1958 and 1959. In 1959 the model name changed to Ford Galaxie Skyliner very shortly after the production of 1959 models had started. The retractable roof mechanism - also known as "Hide-Away Hardtop" -[1] was unique to Ford branded products, and was not offered on Continental, Lincoln, Mercury, or Edsel branded vehicles during this time period.

The Ford Skyliner Retractable was only the second car in history to be series produced with a retractable hardtop; the first to reach four and five digit production numbers, and the first series produced coupé convertible to feature a roof composed of more than one segment.

Part of the Ford Fairlane 500 range, the Skyliner had a complex mechanism which folded the front of the roof and retracted it under the rear decklid. No hydraulic mechanisms were used as in regular convertibles of the era. The Skyliner top has seven reversible electric motors (only six for 1959 models [2]), four lift jacks, a series of relays, ten limit switches, ten solenoids, four locking mechanisms for the roof and two locking mechanisms for the trunk lid,[3] and a total of 610 ft (185.9 m) of wiring.[4] The large top took up vast amounts of trunk space, limiting the car's sales (however, unlike what most people believe[citation needed], the mechanism had decent reliability).[3][5][6] Production totaled 20,766 units in 1957, declining to 14,713 in 1958 and to 12,915 in 1959.[6] An electric clock was standard.[7] Fuel consumption was around 14 mpg‑US(17 L/100 km; 17 mpg‑imp) overall.[3] The fuel tank was placed vertically in back of the rear seat, which inadvertently added safety in rear collisions.[5]

The wheelbase of the Skyliner was 118 in (3,000 mm) and the overall length was 210.8 in (5,350 mm).[4][8]

During the 1959 model year the Galaxie series was added to Ford’s full-size range and the Skyliner model was absorbed into that series.[7][9] Although the 1959 Galaxie was designated as a separate series,[9] Galaxies carried both “Fairlane 500” and “Galaxie” badging, on the rear and sides respectively.[10] It came with the standard 292CID 2-barrel 200 hp V8.[7]

At the time of its introduction, the Skyliner was the only true hardtop convertible in the world.[11] Today, it has become a collectible car.

The design attracted more attention than sales; the option was expensive, suspected to be unreliable, and took up almost all the trunk space when retracted. It required the roof to be made shorter than the other Fords, and the trunk to be larger. This was because the design was originally to be a Continental coupe.[12][13] Projected losses of the retractable roof Continental resulted in a decision to restyle the vehicle, from the bottom of the windows down, as a member of the Fairlane 500 family because it could attract more buyers as a Ford with more reasonable retail price compared to adding extra costs to the already expensive retail price of a Lincoln Continental.[14] The solid roof pillar of the Skyliner is similar to the appearance of 2nd generation Ford Thunderbirds of 1958-1960.

The following engines, all V8s, were available on the Fairlane 500 Skyliner.

Size [6] Horsepower [6] Model Years [6]
272 cu in (4.5 l) 190 hp (140 kW) 1957
292 cu in (4.8 l) 200 hp (150 kW)
205 hp (153 kW)
212 hp (158 kW)
1957, 1958 & 1959
312 cu in (5.1 l) 245 hp (183 kW) 1957
332 cu in (5.4 l) 225 hp (168 kW)
240 hp (180 kW)
265 hp (198 kW)
1958 & 1959
352 cu in (5.8 l) 300 hp (220 kW) 1958 & 1959

Two manual transmissions, a three-speed and three-speed with overdrive were available, as well as three-speed Ford-O-Matic automatic transmission. Starting in 1958, Cruise-O-Matic was added, which provided a second "drive" range ("D2"), allowing for an intermediate gear start.[4]
