Car now has Equa-Lock rear axle.  Haven't checked ratio, but probably 3:56.  The engine is original and strong, but has blow-by.  I'm thinking about installing a healthy FE just for fun.  This Edsel is very straight with beautiful bumpers and trim, and nice original upholstery.  Body is totally rust-free and the car drives and stops like it did in 1960.
