Crown Victoria Skyliner
Chassis #: U5RW-134768
Sold for $71,500 at 2013 RM Auctions - St John's.
The Ford Crestline Skyliner and Mercury Monterey Sun Valley (called the Monarch Lucerne in Canada) were introduced for the 1954 model year. The X-100 and X-500 show cars provided the inspiration for the two-door hardtops. Both featured a tinted Plexiglass roof panel over the driver and front passenger to tone down light, heat, and glare. Ford first showed its version at the Rotunda in Dearborn, Michigan, in January 1954; two were given away to visitors submitting the best 'Worth More' features of the new Ford car line.

Along with the all-new 'Y-block' 256 CID overhead valve V-8, Ford offered four-way power seats for the first time, along with power steering, brakes, and windows, and a Ford-O-Matic automatic transmission as options.

For 1954, Ford produced 13,444 units of their Skyliner. Both Ford and mercury models received a restyle for 1955, with both of their 'bubbletops' moving up-market. For Ford, this meant it was now part of the top-of-the-line Fairlane Crown Victoria series. Features included a non-structural chrome roof band, or 'basket handle.'

This example was manufactured at Ford's Los Angeles factory, spending its early life in the city. In the early 1980s, it was brought to Vancouver Island, British Columbia, where it was kept dry in storage until 2004, when it was purchased by the current owners.

The car has been treated to an extensive restoration, with the body being taken off the frame. The 312 CID V8 was rebuilt. It is finished in the factory-correct combination of Sea Sprite and Skyhaze.
