1959 Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner Retractable Hardtop. The Conceptcarz.com tells us that the 1959 Fords earned a Gold Medal for ‘Exceptional Styling’ at the Brussels World Fair. They are considered by many to be the most beautifully styled Fords ever built with their long, low bodies, swept-back rear fender lines, flat, sculptured front fenders with dual headlights and exceptionally flat hoods.
The Fairlane 500 Skyliner was so impressive at its 1957 introduction that President Dwight D. Eisenhower ordered an early model. its retractable hardtop – operated by a multitude of motors, relays, screw jacks, springs and pivoting arms – was impressive in itself.
