Ford Fairlane Skyliner 1959 Retractable Hardtop, opening & closing

The opening and closing of a Ford 1959 Retractable. However, it it not the first retractable in the market, the first one was a Peugeot 402 Eclipse (1935). Btw, does anyone know where to get spare parts for this Ford (original, replica) like rubbers etc.?
