This was my first car.  I joined the International Edsel club in 1976.  It had a radio delete which I let go with a parts Edsel (I wish I had it back now that we are restoring it!).  It has been in dry storage for over 15 years but when I found out that they were featuring woodys and wagons at the Iola car show I took it as a sign from above that this is the year we restore the Edsel.
