Description

Lot #5038 - This multiple award-winning, heavily documented 3-owner Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner was factory fitted with both the F Code supercharged engine and the retractable hardtop, making this example exceptionally rare. Everything on the car is either original or correct, including the 300hp supercharged 312cid overhead valve V8 engine, s/c 4 barrel carburetor, McCulloch Paxton VR-57 supercharger and headers. The extensive list of factory/dealer installed options and accessories found on this rare Skyliner include automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, power windows, power seats, heater, dual spotlights, padded dash, padded sun visors, day/night mirror, seat belts, upgraded Town & Country radio, factory clock, Vee bar, rocker panel moldings, fender skirt shields, front bumper guards, Continental kit, exhaust deflectors, back-up lights, white wall tires and of course the ultra-rare F Code supercharged engine. This supercharged Skyliner was treated to a full restoration and shortly thereafter competed and won AACA Grand National Senior, AACA National First Prize Senior, International Ford Retractable Club People's Choice and Showcase Awards.
