Edsel Number 1, destined for permanent display, was actually built two weeks after production began.  This was probably so all the accessories were available at assembly time.

Serial numbers 700101 through 700120 were reserved for Somerville pilot cars.  Regular production VINs began with 700121.  This is the only Somerville car with an assembly number below 700101.
