I bought this car and its twin, 0U11Y701455 together in 1988 from Tom Ashton.  Original mileage.  All paperwork, including work/manufacturer sheet for the build of this car (found under the carpet).

The car was bought new by the Greenbrier Insurance Co., Lewisburg, WV, on Nov. 21, 1959.  It was in their possession until sometime in the early 80's where the car was taken to Virginia Beach to a car auction.  (I do have a trip ticket where the car was taken there, but I have misplaced it temporarily).  According to Tom Ashton the car was bought by a dealer near him in Winchester Va., where he aquired it, I believe to be between 1980-82.  He had the car until I bought it in 1988.

I have all the paperwork, reciepts, from the car's build to the present.  Most of the people that I know, including the Edsel club in VA and national know, this particular Edsel is my "baby", though I have the 2-door sedan "twin" to the car, and a 59 Edsel as well.
