SIGNED BY FORD ENGINEER, BOB SMITH, 292 V8, 3-SPEED AUTO, RUNS & DRIVES AWESOME!

You already know the significance of the 1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner. It's the first year of a very limited run where Ford dreamed big and delivered a retractable hardtop convertible to the public. And not only do you get that awesome roof but also Ford's engineer for this unique feature even signed the car!

The 1957 Fords were unique from every angle, and that's why we desire them so much today. The headlight design was exclusive to this year, and it looks frenched right from the factory. The Fairlane 500's sweeping side trim had one of its most graceful dips thanks to the streak of premium gold built right in. And the extra-long tailfin that started at the door handle gave these full-size cars some Thunderbird flair - a feeling that was continued with the afterburner taillights. The two-tone paint has its own level of appeal with a quality later application where the bold red is sandwiched in-between the lower black portion and the black roof. Plus, the awesome retractable hardtop has a smooth action as it disappears into the trunk to give you both the look of a pillarless coupe or disappear completely to have a great-looking convertible. This was a technology that was ... Please ask for the full description.

Description

SIGNED BY FORD ENGINEER, BOB SMITH, 292 V8, 3-SPEED AUTO, RUNS & DRIVES AWESOME!

You already know the significance of the 1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner. It's the first year of a very limited run where Ford dreamed big and delivered a retractable hardtop convertible to the public. And not only do you get that awesome roof but also Ford's engineer for this unique feature even signed the car!

The 1957 Fords were unique from every angle, and that's why we desire them so much today. The headlight design was exclusive to this year, and it looks frenched right from the factory. The Fairlane 500's sweeping side trim had one of its most graceful dips thanks to the streak of premium gold built right in. And the extra-long tailfin that started at the door handle gave these full-size cars some Thunderbird flair - a feeling that was continued with the afterburner taillights. The two-tone paint has its own level of appeal with a quality later application where the bold red is sandwiched in-between the lower black portion and the black roof. Plus, the awesome retractable hardtop has a smooth action as it disappears into the trunk to give you both the look of a pillarless coupe or disappear completely to have a great-looking convertible. This was a technology that was developed for the Lincoln/Continental program, and so it was a true premium Ford. Only the Thunderbird was more expensive, and so Ford's standard convertible outsold the Skyliner nearly four to one. That's why these are such a rare treat today. So when you see one that's so complete and looks this good, you know it's a special find.

The interior shows off even more of the bold red style. But what you might appreciate the most is that the seats also have a comfy cloth insert that's great for convertibles. The door panels are even done to match. There are well-placed upgrades, like the more modern seatbelts, a cup holder console, aux gauges, and new power remote for the hardtop. But even with these additions, the atmosphere is a true vintage one. You have the horizon-like speedometer, and ahead of that is the artful steering wheel that still has the Ford family crest in the center. Even the classic AM radio is still cranking out the tunes. Plus, the glovebox door is signed by Ben Smith, Ford's engineer for this Skyliner project.

Under the hood is the 292 cubic-inch V8. It was the kind of powerhouse shared with the Thunderbird, and the valve covers certainly remind you of that. It's a very stock presentation, but the way this one fires up and runs also tells you that vintage style doesn't mean missing out on care. You have a clean undercarriage that proves more of the care and investment that went into this Skyliner. And features like the three-speed automatic transmission and modern tread behind the classic whitewalls give this a solid cruiser feeling.

Complete with owner's manual, this rare Skyliner has an awesome appeal that goes well beyond that hallmark retractable hardtop. So if you want to be cruising tomorrow, you need to call today!
