Classic Car Overview

West Coast Classics are proud to present an absolutely beautifully restored and great daily driving and completely rust free example of this very rare and desirable 1959 Ford Fairlane Galaxie 500 Skyliner Retractable 2 Door Hardtop Convertiblewith the 292 CID 200 HP V8 engine with dual exhausts and with factory specifications including: air conditioning, the Ford-O-Matic 2 speed automatic transmission, 3.70:1 rear axle, Magic air heater and defroster, AM radio, Electric clock, full wheel covers, Continental Kit, optional dual spotlights & rear fender skirts, white sidewall tires and its fully functional Hydraulic power operated retractable hardtop roof! This particular example has been restored as required over the years with absolutely no expense spared in its beautiful original factory Wedgewood Blue over Surf Blue color clear coat paint with a striking and also original and correct specification and complimenting Radiant Blue Soft Textured Vinyl Bloster & Blue Shadoweave Striped Fabric with Silver Strand interior and this is a car which was has obviously always been garaged and well maintained. All the chrome and stainless steel was obviously also removed and re-chromed or refinished. The floor boards, trunk and all the typical rust-prone areas are completely solid and rust-free and the car has no signs of any accidents - obviously a garaged and cherished car since new. The car has been completely restored both mechanically and cosmetically with the cars original 292 V8 engine and transmission; the car is extremely strong and powerful and sounds absolutely magnificent and the transmission shifts smoothly through the gears and this car drives absolutely magnificently - must be driven to be fully appreciated - does not miss a beat and purrs like a kitten - drives straight as an arrow with no strange road wobbles, shakes or rattles - a truly remarkable daily driver that will give any modern day car a run for its money! The transmission shifts smoothly through the gears and the car has four virtually new white-wall tires and the cars retractable hardtop roof is fully functional.Ford received a fairly heavy handed facelift for 1958 with quad headlights and tailights, a larger chrome front bumper and grille, dummy hood scoop and new bodystyle trim. The Ford Fairlane 500 Sunliner Convertible cost $400 less than its sibling, the retractable hardtop convertible - the Skyliner Retractable; which was the worlds first true Hartop convertible, but nevertheless both models earned their Milestone car status and today both models are highly sought after by Ford collectors internationally, especially rare unmolested and well preserved models like this one. The car was heavily restyled and re-engineered again in 1959 and officially became part of that years new top-of-the-line Galaxie series, although it continued to wear the Fairlane 500 script. A true Milestone collectible car today and always a proven crowd pleaser for its technical fascination and a testament to the time that Detroit would attempt and achieve the seemingly impossible for its day! This is therefore a rare opportunity to own a beautifully restored both cosmetically and obviously mechanically as necessary over the years example of an otherwise very stock and original 1959 Ford Fairlane 500 Sykliner Retractable Convertible with very rare factory air conditioning!
