292 Ranger V8, 3-speed manual transmission
Edsel number 702644 manufactured in Louisville, KY on November 19, 1959
Owned: 1972 - 1978 Mileage: unknown
Condition: Parted out
Originality: N/A Accessories included: unknown Notes:
I bought it in San Jose in 1972, but had come from Illinois and was gutted on the right side with rust. It had what I call a "blended" interior, black/silver pebblecloth with gray/gray champagne door panels. What attracted me to it was that it was a V8 with a 3-speed manual shift AND that it had a date code of 19L. As my later research turned out, the 19L was a typo, since this car would have been assembled in October, not November. And, yes, it was parted out in 1978 to make an Edsel convertible.
