Astonishing Indian Turquoise and White color combination, and potent 352 V8 powerplant, this is a fascinating piece of automotive history, recently sold at Barrett Jackson for a little over $100,000. American Muscle Car Museum’s owner Mark Pieloch goes into details on this show quality restored 1959 Ford Galaxie Skyliner, and shares some nice stories from back in the day as his family owned one of these Hide-Away Hardtop classics.

Check out the video to see more of this spectacular Ford Galaxie Retractable Convertible.
