Purchased new from Kroll Edsel in Red Bank, N.J. on 11/5/57.  I still have the original Authorized Edsel Dealer's Service Policy with coupon still attached, and the original buyers order.  The Edsel did family duty for five years before it was sold.  Shortly thereafter it was in a bad crash and then scrapped.  During its family duty the car was quite reliable.  The teletouch was serviced once and some lower quarter panel rust was repaired.  We loved the car and no matter where we went people would turn and look in awe.  It was also quite powerful for its day.  I would love to have one again.
