During 1959, Ford's Galaxie Skyliner was part of the full-sized line-up. It carried both the Fairlane 500 & Galaxie designations. The Skyliner was only produced for three years, '57, '58, and '59. The last year was the least produced of the Skyliner, with only 12,915 built. This particular '59 Galaxie Skyliner is the best you will find. It is a remarkable car, displaying excellent paint & body in the correct factory colors of Geranium & Colonial White.
