Sold for $165,000 at 2014 RM Auctions - Hershey.
The Ford Motor Company celebrated its 50th anniversary in 1953 with a hardcover book, Ford at Fifty, which both looked back at the company's rich history and ahead at its future. On the cover were the X-100 and X-500 show cars. The following year, production Ford Fairlane Victoria Coupes - in similar fashion to the X-100 and X-500 show cars - were given a glass roof panel, which was dubbed both 'the Ultra-Modern Skyliner' and the 'glamour gal of the 1954 season.' Though the glass roof panel was unique, it acted like a greenhouse in sunny weather. This problem was eventually addressed with zip-in sunshades and widely ordered factory Select Aire air conditioning.

Just 603 examples of the Skyliner were produced in 1956. They are the rarest and most desirable of all Crown Victorias. This example was purchased new by Dan Pixler, of Luana, Iowa. In the early 1980s, Mr. Pixler treated the car to a restoration, with much of the work being performed by himself. It is finished in Sunset Coral paint. It has a nerf bar bumper protectors, a dual exhaust, an original Ford Continental kit, front and rear stone guards, stainless rocker panel moldings, fender skirts with stone guards, power brakes, power steering, a four-way power seat, power windows, map lights, a tissue dispenser, a rear window defroster, an AM radio with a rear speaker, an under-hood trouble light, stainless wire hubcaps, and wide whitewall bias-ply tires. It has the zip-in sunshade, and factory Select Aire air conditioning.
