1959 Galaxie, and it looks to me like a convertible Sunliner

Purely a guess here but a guy called Rockin' Roy who was the DJ at Guildford cruise has (had?) two cars very similar to these in colour and trim.

If they are his, and bearing in mind this episode was filmed in Farnborough about 20 miles from where he lived at the time, then you're looking at a 1959 Ford Galaxie Skyliner retractable hardtop and a 1959 Pontiac Bonneville coupe.

1959 Ford Galaxie SKYLINER is correct. If you look at the character on the far left, directly behind his hip there is a set of lines in the car, this set of lines is the gas tank lid for the Skyliners ONLY. The Sunliners and non-convertibles had the gas tank lid above the back bumper in the center of the car.
And.. (I am not entirely sure on this).. but I believe since this is a 1959 Galaxie Skyliner, that makes its full name out to be a 1959 Ford Galaxie Fairlane 500 Skyliner, as the Skyliner models only came fulled loaded. (don't quote me on that)

To Set the record straight both cars are owned by 'Rockin' Roy' who along with David Jones founded the famous Guildford Cruise. The Ford is a 1959 Ford Galaxie Fairlaine 500 Skyliner Retractable. The second car in the background is a 1959 Pontiac Bonneville Coup. Both of these cars are currently available for weddings at www.classicandvintage.co.uk/
