This Edsel has been garage stored since 1972 when my dad parked it.  I believe reverse went out of the transmission (which is in the trunk along with a spare transmission).  This car is totaly complete in unrestored condition, the body is beautiful other than the lower rocker panels which have rust, and the rear bumper is tweaked slightly.  All the glass is perfect (it's been stored 36 years) the interior is very nice other than the seats have dry rot due to materials used and age.  All chrome is in top condition inside and out.  The floor boards are solid and the inner fender wells are extremely nice (fresh ashphalt from paveing back in the 60's protected the underside),very little rust through the car as a result.  Has a complete set of "Edsel" hub caps as well.

I have all insurance papers from 1959 - 1972 when it was parked.  It was purchased in Nelson British Columbia Canada and currently has a home in Kamloops British Columbia.
The engine should still run (it did when parked) but the radiator is in the trunk.  This is a Canadian Model car, meaning the interior is done white rather than the black of the American models.  Steering column and wheel and various other bits - very subtle differences.
