Sitting in a barn since 1971.  Bought on Ebay for $2200 from a gentleman in Hartland, WI.  It will need paint, interior, brakes, tires, the trunk doesn't open, the motor is seized (from sitting), and it was flat towed (four-wheels on ground in neutral) for ten miles (hence the tow bar on the front, now removed), so the transmission is probably junk.  If I can't save any of the original Edsel stuff, I will drop a 351 Windsor, a C6, and front wheel power disc brakes in the car and redo the interior in Royal blue and white Tuck-n-Roll leather and the paint in Royal blue with white top and scallops.
