Description for Ford Fairlane 1959

Wow !!!! 1959 Ford Galaxie 500 Convertible in Indian TurquoiseThe Retractable Hardtop was $500 additional over the softop back in 1959
While we take folding hardtops for granted today.In the late 1950, Ford's Skyliner "Retractable " Hardtop was a sensation. New Owners probably could of sold tickets to watch the big hardtop tuck itself into the trunk, and this 1959 Ford Skyliner Retractable is one of the Nicer Examples seen in a long time.
This Stunning Galaxie 500 Convertible was restored 10 years ago in Original Indian Turquoise Paint and Radiant Turquoise / with Silver Strand interior. Ford's styling was refined for 1959 but its plenty ornate, with a sweeping spear of trim down the flank, modes Fin, and neat little gunsights atop the front fenders. For a Convertibl, everything fits together quite well, including the door, and its doubly important for things like the trunk to be right, since it's an integral part of the folding top assembly. Also be sure to check out the wonderfully ornate grill, the beautifully chromed bumper, so it has a ton of presence everywhere it goes.
A Radiant Turquoise and Silver Interior looks sharp against the Refined Lines of this Ornate Finned Classic.The Original Radio is still in the car as well as all the gauges are all functiona, the steering wheel shows no signs of age or sun damage, and the overall level of preservation is extremely impressive Of Cours, on a Retractabl, the critical thing is the top, and you can buy this one with confidenc, because it goes up and down effortlessly with just a touch of a button
This Skyliner carries the Ford's Strong-Running 332 cubic inch v8, which was the most popular engine choice in 1959. It runs beautifully and gives the Convertible the kind of effortless cruising you expect from a 50's automobile along with a muted V8 purr. A correct air cleaner and beautiful valve covers proudly showing off big Ford block letters. Power steering makes this Classic easy to handle and there's a equally giant radiator up front that seems designed for parades Underneat, Its mostly original but that's OK because it runs beautifully and cruises along effortlessly with the Ford-O-Matic Transmission and a 9-inch rear end . Four recent wide whitewall radials have been fitted to the original wheels with factory wheel covers
One of the true automatic wonders of the 50's . the ford retactables are finally getting their due.
