I have a beautiful 1958 Edsel Pacer Convertible for sale.  I have owned her for a little over three years.  This is my second Edsel.  My other Edsel has been our family for 59 years.

This convertible is a complete car that runs and drives like a dream.  It has power steering, the top works every time.  She gets attention everywhere we drive her.  The upholstery, carpet and convertible top and boot are in good condition.  The trunk is solid.  Has jack and spare tire.  I just have run out of time and money to spend on her.  She desrves a home where she will get a fresh coat of paint and some rechroming in places.
