223 Econo-Six, 3-speed manual transmission, 3.56:1 axle ratio
Edsel number 700283 manufactured in Louisville, KY on September 18, 1959
Location: Wyandotte, Michigan
Owned since: October 2004 Mileage: 122,751
Condition: Show car
Originality: Modified with non-Edsel components Accessories included: Lever-Temp Heater/Defroster, Standard Radio, Tinted Glass, Electric Wipers, Oval Side Mirror, Back-up Lights, License Plate Frames Notes:
"Gomer", as I've named him, has been fully restored with color changed to Turquoise "C" with turquoise champagne cloth deluxe interior. Front manual disc brakes were added which necessitated switching to 15 inch rims which are painted the body color and wear the small Edsel "poverty" caps and new black wall bias ply tires from Coker. Besides the disc brake conversion, the only non-factory equipment change was the addition of an original Ford overdrive unit to the manual transmission.
I bought the car from Steve Schultz of Arizona in 2004. He was going to part it out and send it to the crusher. I had to rescue it! I have way more invested than it's worth but I love it.
