1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner Retractable

Ford scored a Detroit first with the 57 Fairlane 500 Skyliner and its novel retracting metal hardtop.

Priced at $2,942.00, the 57 model won 20,766 orders. Ford retractables were produced in 1958 & 1959 after which they were not produced.

It was not until 2002 that the "retractable" was reintroduced, this time by Lexus in the 430 and Mercedes in the 500 and 320.
