352 CID V8 - 4BBL - Auto. - P.S. - P.B. - Retractable Hardtop Works Great!

This 1958 Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner Retractable is a beautifully restored convertible and was owned by its previous owner for over 55 years. 1958 was tough year for the American Auto Manufacturers as car sales slowed while the country was going through an economic recession. Nonetheless, Ford redesigned its entire car product line in '58 with revamped front ends with new dual headlights, new "honeycomb" grille treatment, and a new simulated air scoop on the hoods, which gave the 1958 models a futuristic look. Besides the flagship Thunderbirds, Ford's Fairlane models were the top-of-the-line model available for Ford at the time and the Fairlane 500 was the top trim level of the Fairlanes. The most expensive Fairlane 500 one could purchase back in 1958 was the Skyliner Convertible with the retractable hardtop. 1958 was the second year for Ford's retractable convertibles and they were a major feat of engineering utilizing numerous solenoids, high torque motors, relays and microswitches, along with hundreds of feet of wire. Essentially with the pull of a button, the hardtop mechanically unscrews and lifts off the passenger cabin, while folding up and being placed completely flush in the trunk. This particular '58 Skyliner comes to us from a collector who originally purchased the car in 1963 and has held onto it until now. Under the hood on this 1958 Ford is a 352 Cubic Inch V8 engine with a single 4 barrel carburetor that pushed out 300 horsepower in its day. The 352 V8 is hooked up to an Automatic transmission ensuring that just about anybody can take this classic Ford convertible for a spin around the block. This '58 Fairlane 500 is also a particularly well-optioned example. With Power Steering, getting in and out of those tight spaces is made much easier. Power brakes also assist bringing this Ford retractable to a stop, especially considering all of that horsepower under the hood. The exterior has been beautifully refinished in its original color, Colonial White. Riding on wide whitewall bias-ply tires with chrome wire wheels, this '58 Skyliner has a fantastic look. The retractable hardtop works great on this Fairlane 500, going up and down with the simple pull/push of the button mounted under the dash. The interior on this convertible is stunning! The front and rear bench seats have been reupholstered in White Vinyl with Black Random-Block Patterned Fabric inserts which is just like how this Fairlane 500 Skyliner was ordered back in 1958. The door panels and steering wheel show some signs of patina but remain in nice shape. The dash has an excellent look and is in its stock configuration, equipped with a 120 MPH Speedometer, Temperature Gauge, Fuel Gauge, Town & Country Radio, and Clock. Whether you're looking for your very first classic car or you have a garage full of 50s cruisers, this 1958 Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner Retractable would be an excellent choice. Give us a call today!
