GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1957 Ford Fairlane Skyliner Retractable for your consideration.
This vehicle was restored around 5 years back and has been driven very lightly since. All of the exterior chrome is in good condition and the body shows well.
The trim tag decodes this vehicle as a 292 cubic inch V8 motor, assembled in Dearborn, MI, and is a true Fairlane 500 Hide-Away Hardtop.
This is an excellent driving vehicle that has good power, shifts smoothly and brakes strongly.
The Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner 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” – was unique to Ford-branded products, and was not offered on Continental, Lincoln, Mercury, or Edsel branded vehicles during this time period.
