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.
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. For more info, please call 1-800-231-3616.

Take a look at these two classic beauties from Ford. The first is a 59 Galaxie sunliner hardtop retractable. The second is a rare 58 3 tone Fairlane coupe from Texas,as you can see from the license plate. Weather wasn't kind to us that day at the show,so unfortunately the roof on the 59 had to be closed. Filmed at the American motoring show of 2009. Sunday 5th April 2009 at the Flemington racecourse in Flemington Victoria(inner Melb) Australia. Check my other videos for more great ol' classic cars.
