500 V8 Sunliner Convertible
Chassis #: E7RC208526
Sold for $66,000 at 2009 Pebble Beach Auction : Gooding & Company.
In 1957, Ford introduced the first ever production hard-top convertible, the Fairlane 500 Skyliner Retractable Hardtop. The 'hideaway hardtop' was Ford's most expensive car in 1957 with a base price of $2,942.

The Sunliner Convertible was the top-of-the-line Ford, except for the novel but problematic Skyliner. They came fitted with a long list of standard features and plenty of interesting options from which the customers could chose. Ford marketed their new line of cars as being thoroughly modern. The encouraged test drives to 'action test' the new 1957 Ford.

This Ford Sunliner 500 is a restored example that has been painted in two-tone Dresden Blue with the upper body in Starmist Blue. It is equipped with 'Select Aire' air-conditioning and an E-Code engine featuring a dual four-barrel carburetor arrangement.

In 2009, this Fairlane 500 Sunliner E-Code was offered for sale at Gooding & Company's auction held at Pebble Beach, California. The lot was estimated to sell for $80,000 - $100,000, and offered without reserve. The lot was sold for the sum of $66,000, inclusive of buyer's premium.
