1959 Ford Fairlane 500 Galaxie Sunliner
2-Door Convertible

Model Year History Overview:

Ford for 1959 was basically a continuation of the facelifts that began with the 1957 all-new model, using a bumper/grille reminiscent of the ’58 Thunderbird and quad headlights.  The ’59 Ford used the basic ’57 body with updated, though still conservative, styling which featured a squared-off grille with floating, star like ornaments, and simple side moldings.  1959 was the last year Ford produced the Skyliner retractable hardtop.  The retractable was a unique mid-1957 arrival based on earlier developmental engineering by the Continental Division.

This is an original 43,000-mile car.  It has new brake hoses, 4 new wheel cylinders, new brake shoes, and new shocks.  It also has a new fuel tank, new fuel pump, new fuel filter and new carburetor,
and a new set of Firestone radial tires.  The body has been professionally repainted around 1994.  The engine is a 292 cid Y-block with a brand new 2-barrel carburetor.  The valve covers, complete air cleaner, radiator, and other small items have been professionally refinished & repainted, and the water pump has been replaced.  The interior is breath-taking in its tri-color in red, black, and white accented with silver, also in original condition.  The front and rear seats and door panels are incredible and in original condition with no rips/tears/defects.  The radio is the original radio and does work.
