It was 55 years ago but this roof’s opening technology is awesome!
It was the 1959, and Ford was producing the Galaxie Skyliner with retractable hardtop.
The Skyliner had a complex mechanism which folded the front of the roof and retracted it under the rear decklid. It did all this without the use of hydraulics.
It simply amazes me knowing that it was more then 55 years ago. Maybe the opening of the roof is not so fast but, hey, it was a little time ago 😉 Anyway looking at this beautiful hardtop retracting is simply incredible!
