Video: Inside Griot’s Garage – ’57 Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner

Buckle up as we take you on a behind the sheetmetal look at the iconic 1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner. See (and hear) the car’s claim to fame, its power retractable Hide-Away-Hardtop. No less than seven electric motors, four lift jacks, and 10 solenoids scream like a freight train when actuating the top.

All the motors and gizmos are shocked to life by an incredible 610 feet of wire. Beyond the top you’ll get a look under the hood and enjoy a complete walk-around review.
