Note the original miles.  The original owner was so embarrassed that he owned an Edsel, when it was killed by Ford in 1959, he parked it behind a barn.  It sat outside for 32 years, until he died in 1991.  The owner's son sold it for $1500.  It still awaits restoration, but at least it's stored indoors!
