I bought two Ford Skyliners that were in poor condition in 1986. I used the best parts out of each car to make one.
It has a 390 Ford engine with a C-6 transmission and it has power windows, power doors, power seats and the top works with a keyless remote.
The car has won numerous awards and it was in the 2007 Official State Visitors Guide and Travel Planner.
1963 Jeep Makeover
This project started out when I received this Jeep from my wife,
Charlotte, at Christmas in 2001. It has taken me 5 years to do all of the
modifications on it. It was basically a shell and I purchased a Blazer for
the frame. I did everything except for the paint job, upholstery and
It has been a fun 5 year project. Also see 1963 Jeep Willys Pickup.
1957 Ford Fairlane 500 - "Crusin' with the top down"
1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner with a retractable hardtop, 292Cid V8, and
automatic transmission that has 37k miles(believe to be actual but have no
proof). The first owner had the car for 44 years, and when purchased in
2001 it had been sitting in a barn since 1981. The car had a complete frame
on restoration in 2002. During the restoration the 292 V8 engine and
automatic transmission was rebuilt (around 2,500 miles ago). New parts
include brakes, master and wheel cylinders, and whitewall tires. The
retractable hard top makes this car really sweet and a little different.

I purchased this 1958 DeSoto Sportsman from a private salvage yard in 2005
and dragged it home to my garage. I spent three years making it roadworthy
and drove it out of the garage in 2008. I did all the work myself with some
help from my sons.

CID, 300 BHP. THE WEIGHT OF THIS CAR WAS 4,064 LBS. THIS VIDEO SHOWS THE

EXCELLENT RESTORATION AND A RARE CAR, THE LAST YEAR OF THE FORD SKYLINER.
