Introduced in 1954, Ford's glass-top Skyliner was a prestige version of the Crestline Victoria hardtop coupe, with an acrylic transparent roof panel over the front seat. Now part of the top-of-the-line Fairlane series, it was twinned with a steel-topped coupe, the Crown Victoria, which had a streamlined roofline and a bold chrome tiara in the B-pillar location. Just 1,999 were built.
This Skyliner is the real deal. It has been restored in Snowshoe White and Tropical Rose colors, with matching vinyl interior and black carpets. It is equipped with a tinted glass top, push-button radio, electric clock, Magic Aire heater-defroster, dual exterior mirrors, cruiser fender skirts, chrome lake pipes and Continental kit.
Powering this Skyliner is an M-code 272ci V8 engine with 4-barrel carburetor mated to a 3-speed Ford-O-Matic automatic transmission, and is equipped with a dual exhaust system. Wide whitewall tires fitted to Kelsey Hayes front wire wheels with spinner caps give the car an elegant appearance.
