I purchased it on Jan. 5, 1970 with a blown engine for $85.  It was sold (note the sign in the back window) in July, 1971, to a body shop in Santa Monica, Calif. called Aristro-Craft Auto Body, owned by one John Rile.  Rile purchased a repainted '60 Sunliner that was originally Orchid Gray Metallic and cut both cars up into an Edsel/Sunliner.  He left the Ford interior, knobs, etc. and painted it black in and out with a white top.

While car #187 is gone today, it lives on as the first reproduction '60 Edsel convertible produced from a Sunliner.
