1958 Ford Fairlane 500 Sunliner Convertible
|Model History||Auction sales research||Specifications||Body styles and Chassis Data|
The Skyliner and Sunliner were the two convertible options offered on the Fairlane 500 range. The Skyliner, offered from 1947 through 1959, had a folding hardtop which was rather clumsy, complicated and heavy. The Sunliner had a folding soft top, a more traditional design. The Sunliner was the more popular of the two, outselling its counterpart about two-to-one.
This 1958 Ford Fairlane 500 Sunliner Convertible with chassis number G8MC104765 is complete with fender skirts, power steering, twin mirrors, white tonneau covers, whitewall tires, and power steering. Under the hood is a 332 cubic-inch V8 engine that produces 265 horsepower. There is a three-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel drum brakes.
It was offered for sale at the 2006 RM Auctions in Meadow Brook where it was estimated to fetch between $35,000 - $45,000. It was offered without reserve, finding a new home at $30.800.
