VIDEO: Lucy, Desi and the Ford Skyliner

The video meant to be presented here is no longer available. Sorry for the inconvenience.

When the Ford Fairlane Skyliner came out as a new 1957 model, FoMoCo was ready with the celeb endorsements. Witness this 2-minute promo skit in which Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz get the full dog & pony show from Mr. 1950's Announcer Voice Guy as he regales them with tales of the goodness surrounding the car's retractable hardtop.

Many laugh-out-loud moments here, because Lucy and Desi are ... well ... Lucy and Desi. They're the pros. You know it's going to be great, so just watch it already.

If you'd like more Skyliner stuff, there's a nice archival shot of the car on the production line in Dearborn and a few informational links after the jump. Enjoy!
