Notes:
This Mahwah-built Edsel was purchased on eBay, in a second-chance offer from the original family owner.  Always garage kept.  The car was bought new by the former owner's grandfather, passed to his father in 1981, and then to him in 1984.  The car is entirely factory original, including paint, except for the tires and the exhaust.  The interior, except carpet, currently is perfect, including the seats and padded dashboard that are still like new with no splits, rips, discoloration or flaws.  The car was last registered in January 1973 by original owner Robert C. Green, with 52,780 miles, and then put in storage 20 miles afterward at 52,800 miles flat.  The car has been in storage ever since.  The car is 99.9% rust-free, extremely rare for a Mahwah-built Edsel.  The passengers side fender and edge of rear quarter panel are slightly bent, but nothing major.  When the car is registered and put back on the road, former owner Robert Green Jr. will come and visit me to take a look at it, which means a lot to me.

On a scale of 1-10, 10 being highest, the originality of this car is a 10.  This Edsel could be owned by the world's youngest Edsel owner, myself being 15, and paying all $2225 for the car with my own money from my lawn care business.  I couldn't have found a better original car or a better original owner to buy it from.  I have found my dream car, with only one owner prior to myself, and the car will eventually be restored to 100% factory condition.  I will plan on getting most of my parts from Hugh Lesley, as he is only an hour and 15 minutes away from me.
