The "Crestline Skyliner was only produced in 1954 and just over 13,000 were sold. The revolutionary acrylic roof design was incorporated into the Ford Crown Victoria line for the following 2 years but the two year combined sales were less than that of the 1954 Crestline Skyliner.
While the concept was impressive to look at, there was a definite issue with excess heat in the car, especially true in the southwest region of the United States.
1954 was also Ford's first year of their overhead valve V-8 engine which was strong enough to effectively power Ford's new line of automobiles.
