This car has been in storage last thirty years.  No fender rust.  Had one repaint over thirty years ago.  Paint is coming off on hood and rear below window, damage repaired on left front door.  Gas tank, fuel system, and brakes have been redone.  Teletouch transmission works fine.  The only rust I can see is where the gas pedal is on the floor.  I cut out a section of floor to match, as I am parting out another '58 Edsel.
The windshield has one small vertical crack but windshield is good in the other car and it will also go.  Body is straight with only left door damage years ago.  Stainless is good since it has been in storage for many years.  The tires are bias ply and over 30 years old.  The car is not licensed and insured so I have not had it on the open road.  Driving around the neighborhood, it runs and stops fine.  Since the price is so low and it has been in storage thirty years I wouldn't expect to fly in and drive it home.
This vehicle has a clear South Dakota title.
