I bought this car from the original owner, who is now 85 years old.  The car was bought new in Reno from Cal-Vada Edsel - I even have the original title.  It still has 1965 license plates on it.  The padded dash and headliner, door panels, back seat are still intact.

It ran when parked in 1966.  I havent tried to start it.  It has a couple of small dents, one spot of rust, floors are good, no pitting of the chrome.  It is towable, and has been pretty well preserved.
