1959 Ford Galaxie Skyliner Project

1959 Ford Galaxie Skyliner

From Dustyn F. – These come up every so often. The sellers always want a bunch of money for basketcases though. I have a barn fresh 50k original mile Galaxie in mint condition that I gave the original owner $1,000 for. I would say this one is worth $2,500 tops given the condition and cost of restoration. These are awesome cars when restored and as far as I’m concerned this is one the best looking cars that came out in 1959. That being said there are a a lot of mechanisms that operate the convertible hard top and any one failing shuts the whole system down. Find this one here on craigslist out of Blanding, Utah.

    “mint” condition? Cool car though.

      I think he’s referring to his own 50K mile car, this is another example for sale that he’s found.

    I think the 59 body style was the best for the flip top.

    I would want this were it not for the rust. I restored a ’57 once, doing the interior and top mechanism myself. It’s a challenging system, but a real feeling of accomplishment when you finally see it do it’s thing.

    Skyliners are always interesting cars. This one has a lot of rust, but is not beyond restoration. I would try to negotiate a lower price but $3500 is not to high considering the rarity.

    He sounds like he is being honest about the car. Could be worth a look see.

    Greetings All,

    This is a convertible hardtop, sweeeeeeet.

    If this car was closer it’d would be in my workshop.

    Made whole fenders for cars, this rust, probably not a problem though I would have liked to see the floors and the trunk floor, which on these cars can be problematic.

    ’59 Fords, just seemed to be designed the way I like. Especially loved the ’59-60 Thunderbird, coupe or convertible. The earlier ones great but the later era just more comfortable.

    Saw one at Hershey today for 50 K.

    Sold mine probably 20 years ago. I still have the trunk/tail panel “v” ornamental chrome piece that I had show chromed. I guess I really should sell it.

    As a young teen I can remember seeing more than one of these fine automobiles alongside the road, the top half up and the owner searching for a way to get it back up or the rest of the way down.
