1959 Dataplate

1959 Canadian Edsel Data Plate

1959 Edsels that were assembled in Canada come equipped with a "Ford of Canada" data plate, 3-3/4 inches wide by 1-1/2 inches high.
Unlike its American-built counterpart, Canadian dataplates do not include details on transmission, axle or assembly date codes.  Stamped on the plate are serial number, engine, trim and paint codes, along with printed directions on finding the engine number.
All Canadian-built Edsels were assembed in the Oakville, Ontario plant.
