This car was purchased new on December 23rd, 1957 from Beamer Motors in Sacramento, CA by George Higgins. George restored the car in the late 1970's/early 1980's winning awards at local car shows. He left the car to his brother, Everett Higgins who kept the car and drove it to local Edsel club meets up until September 2005 when he was kind enough to sell it to me. It is a great stripped down Ranger 2 door hardtop with no power steering, no power brakes, all white-- and I LOVE IT just like it is. Currently the car has full wheel covers on it, but I will probably put the "dog dish" hubcaps on it soon.
