From the online auction text:
This car will need a complete restoration inside and out.  It still wears 1968 Texas license plates.  The body is very solid, especially for an Edsel.  This has always been a Central Texas dry climate car.  Much of the original special Turquoise Metallic paint is still intact for an attractive patina in areas.  The front bumper is in decent shape and most of your rare stainless is there sans possibly a piece or two.  The tail light lenses have been replaced.  The interior is all there and so is the original 292 V8 underhood that turns free.

The dash and steering wheel are original and intact along with the factory gauges.  The back seat is still in good shape and so is the headliner.  We do have a replacement windshield that will be included.

Underhood is the original 292 Y-Block factory rated at 185 horsepower.  This engine hasn't ran in years, but it will turn free by hand and we believe it to be a good motor.  The original breather assembly is intact along with the fuel pump, generator, and all engine parts.  The original sheetmetal throughout the firewall, inner fenders, and core support is straight and solid.

The body is original.  There are a few dings and weather wear front to back.  The windshield is cracked but we have a great replacement included.  The driveshaft is in the trunk.  We also have a recently done radiator included.  The original trunk mat is still in place and there in some jacking equipment.  The trunk and inner quarters are solid as are the door undersides.  The flooring and braces appear solid as well.

We've got a couple of extra wheels and a set of keys, too.
