Features Let’s see Edsel’s

  1. I've seen stick shift Edsels around. One was for sale locally, a '59 for around $8000. I would have jumped on it at $4000, very similar to my '59 Ford Custom 300.

  4. Sorry, I couldn't help myself but he is the original Edsel. :D HRP

  5. You could give him credit for this!
    This was his best IMO.

  6. Is that the car Jim saved? HRP

  7. That is the one! Jim sold it at auction back to Ford Motor Co.

  8. I saw the huge banners of the car in Jims garage when we did the trade but was disjointed that he had already sold it before I got to see it, all in all it's probably back where it belongs. HRP
  9. You mean this? Yes it did go home, but not sure I could have sold it after all that work. Like Jim said " now what do I do with it" IMG_0246.JPG

    A buddy's '58 Villager he impulse bought on ebay, that we flew out to Iowa for and trailered back to Massachusetts. Decent'ish body, needs rockers, rear floors and I've been plugging away on the fenders when I get free time. The 361 looked like someone had been dumping sea water into the valve covers and was completely locked up so it's getting a 460 and a c6 that should be coming home from the machine shop sometime in the next few weeks. His kids love it, his wife hates it, so its in the garage at my house :rolleyes:

    Tri-power, yes, the Lincoln and T-Bird columns/wheels are something I've considered. If I do a swap, I'm sure it will involve swapping the whole works as a unit, which is fine. 57/58 Mercs are out due to their own version of pushbutton gear selectors.
    Will do some research, then look for a Lincoln or T-Bird parts car setup. I want to remove the fully functional TeleTouch setup from the Corsair fir use as spares for the Citation, and doing the conversion will make the Corsair more sellable when "done". I have a very nice 57 Turnpike Cruiser two door hardtop to restore to replicate the orchid one I let go years ago.
    Thanks for your input.
