1959 Ford Galaxie Skyliner Retractable Hardtop, White/White/Tan

1959 Ford Galaxie Skyliner Retractable Hardtop. 352 Gasoline Engine. Automatic Transmission.

In all, Ford produced 48,394 retractable hardtops. Its proper name is the Skyliner, which is often confused with the similar-sounding Sunliner name of the regular convertible model. The Skyliner was offered for just three years, and in 1957, its premier year, a total of 20,766 were produced, followed by 14,713 examples in the 1958 model year. When sales dwindled to just 12,915 Skyliners for 1959, Ford ceased its production as it was too expensive to manufacture such a complex and labor-intensive retractable hardtop in such limited numbers.
