The Ford Crestline Skyliner is an automobile that was built by Ford featuring a 2 door hardtop body style with an integrated acrylic glass panel over the front seating area.[3] Part of the 1954 American Ford Crestline range, it boasted a "freshness of view" through the green-tinted panel. 13,144 were sold in the single year of production, more than the two years of Crown Victoria Skyliner production that would follow.

Mercury's Monterey Sun Valley was similar. 9,761 were built in 1954.
