GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner Retractable Hardtop Convertible for purchase. One of the coolest classics ever made looks like a classic mid 50's poodle skirt cruiser, but it's more than that. This is the first mass produced retractable hardtop convertible ever made. It takes the top, folds just a part of the front of the roof, and retracts the piece under the lid of the trunk. It uses three roof drive motors driving four lift jacks, four door-lock motors, ten solenoids, four locking mechanisms, and 610ft of wiring. While having the top down renders the trunk almost completely useless, the top mechanics are actually surprisingly reliable considering how much is at work. This is one of those great classics that truly stand out from the rest.

This is a '57 Ford Fairlane with a working retractable convertible hardtop in excellent condition. It's restored to near stock specifications and is a great surviving classic. It's powered by the 292ci Thunderbird V8 paired with an automatic transmission. It has original wheels, original dash, and the original steering wheel giving it the great true classic feel for shows. This car has recently been serviced and it runs and drives great. Few cars garner more attention than these rarely found Skyliner's. Please call or email for more details!
