Previous owner was Edsel Ford of San Leandro, CA (co-founder of the Edsel Owners Club, Inc.).
This car is in very good to excellent condition, with rust in lower doors due to drains being plugged but otherwise the body appears to be rust-free.  The interior floors and the trunk floor appear to be original and rust-free.  Chrome and stainless in very good to excellent condition, with some pitting on a few of the cast pieces.
It's not known if the odometer reading was reset when restored.  The interior is in excellent condition, the driverís door panel shows some signs of wear.  It has an under-dash radio-C/D player installed with removable rear package tray speakers.

I am listing the car for the estate of an old friend.  (Buy-It-Now price: $10K)
