"The car was built August 14, 1957 at Somerville, MA. and apparently delivered to southern Ohio.  Current plans are to restore the car to its unique original monochrome paint scheme once I have all the necessary parts, upholstery etc. gathered.  The car runs well and is proving to be reliable and comfortable.  A very brittle hand written build sheet was discovered in the glove compartment and nearly got thrown out.  See it posted in the Edsel.com gallery on the Assorted Literature page as listed above; I will appreciate anyone translating the codes on the build sheet as there are some I don't understand."
