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.?

Ferrari California Convertible Hard Top in Action - AMAZING!
OK, letting the top down in the 2010 Ferrari California and I think it's one of the most amazing engineering feats on the car. Yes, the entire car is excellent, but this has to be one of the quickest convertible hard tops I've ever seen and the amazing thing is the trunk is still completely usable!

1960 Lincoln Continental Convertible Top Retracting and Erecting
There are many video clips of retractable Fords and 4-door Lincoln convertible tops on Youtube but no 1958-1960 Lincolns. So here's a clip showing the convertible top in action. These cars are over 19 feet in length, weigh in at about 5400 pounds and are of unitbody construction. The reverse slant glass rear window opens and closes electrically and the whole rear window frame is pulled down into the car, taking the top with it. The tops locks to the windshield header by electrically driven screws. With the top crammed in the storage compartment there is still a hugh trunk behind it, unlike the Fords with their small luggage tubs and the 4-door Lincolns with very little storage.
