The Ford Skyliner
Most days, Mulberry Street is pretty quiet, but you
should have seen all the excitement the day Bob Jordan
sprung his big suprise on the neighbourhood. Nobody had
ever seen anything quite like this newest new kind of Ford
- the Skyliner - the world's only hide-away hard-top. Naturally
everyone wanted to see just how it works, naturally Bob
wanted to show them.
He pulled the control lever, and the
magic started. First, the rear deck-lid swung up. Next,
the all-steel top automatically began to rise, then the
forward panel folded under. The top continued to move back
and down and finally descended smoothly into the trunk.
You saw it happen from an all-steel hard-top to a wide
open convertible in less than a minute - but do you think
this crowd was satisfied. "Do it again Bob", "Please
put the top back up".
And Bob obliged. He knows
that the mechanism that operates this retractable top
will take all the hard use he can give it, which means
he can show it off to his friends all he likes.
engineers have tested this car by putting the top up
and down thousands of times - the equivelant of ten
years of use without a mechanical failure. This steel
top is plenty rugged too - and weather tight. There,
the last step. Set screws lock the roof and deck-lid
down securely, and it's a snug and beautiful hard-top
This is another example of Ford's advanced engineering,
another Ford First. Ask your Ford dealer about the new
