The Ford Skyliner
|Mulberry Street - Extended Cut
Good evening. Tonight your going to see a demonstration
of an amazing new car, a car that all the world wanted,
and only the engineers here at Ford could build. The
scenes you are about to see could happen on any street
in America, the street we have selected is called "Mulberry".
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
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. Ford
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.
the last step. Set screws lock the roof and deck-lid
down securely, and it's a snug and beautiful hard-top
again. This is another example of Ford's advanced engineering,
another Ford First.
Ask your Ford dealer about the new
Ford Skyliner, the world's only "hide-away"
hard-top. Well I'm sure you'll agree, the Ford Skyliner
is a revolutionary car, and this is important to you
know matter which one of twenty-one new exciting models
you choose, it's important because the Skyliner represents
the kind of advanced engineering, exhaustive testing
and downright extra value that goes into every part
and every feature of every new Ford - all of which means
whichever body style best suits your needs, when you
get a Ford your getting a truly fine car, at half the
fine car price.
