I bought this 1958 Edsel Pacer 2dr Hardtop a few months back off of Craigslist. I always enjoyed the look of Edsels, and after I sold my Poncho, I wanted a decent late 50s early 60s cruiser. We went to pick it up about 3 hours away. Looked good so we hauled it home. In that past few months I have had the tank cleaned out, I ran new fuel line, new brake lines, rebuilt the carb and had the seats redone. Now it just needs a few minor details addressed. I decided to go ahead and post it up for sale here. The next day I get an email from an Edsel enthusiast asking me to see a picture of the data tag. Also saying, if its original color its a very rare combo. Well the combo on the data tag is QER. I previously read that this color combo was discontinued before the end of 1957. Edsels started production on July 15,1957. This car was built July 17, 1957. After talking to an Edsel Historian and Registry, it is currently the only documented car with this rare tri color scheme. Before this one he had only seen documentation of one other that was scrapped 30 years ago. While yes its just the paint colors, whats the big deal, it seems in the small world of already seldom seen Edsels, this is a big deal. Unfortunately Edsels have never had a strong value, even though they only made 6100 Pacers in 1958. I have revised my for sale add, but I am uncertain what I plan to do. I would love to keep this car knowing its history and rarity, but anyone that knows me, knows I do not keep cars for long once I get them fixed up and going. I just love to sell and trade. But I figured I would post this story up, I always enjoy reading about interesting buys, and would love to hear what any other Edsel owners have to say about this car.
