Location: Wenatchee, Washington
Owned since: 2000 Mileage: 96,000
Condition: Drives, but needs restoration
Originality: All parts are factory authentic for the car Accessories included: Radio, Padded dash Notes:
Car is located in Wenatchee Washington (very dry climate) - has no rust and chrome is in really good condition. This car was owned by a gentlman here in town that actually had two Edsels at the time of his death a couple of years ago. Up until that time the car was driven regularly. Has new muffler and the motor starts and idles smoothly. Engine is the E-400 and is complete and runs good. Interior is sunbaked. Headliner has several holes the size of a quarter. Odometer shows 96,000 which is the original mileage. Glass is all good, as far as I can tell the car is very complete except for the hood ornament. The paint actually comes back pretty well when you wax it, but it is well worn around each window. The dashboard looks like it used to have a padded dash, but that is gone. The radio works!
Overall, I would rate it a solid 4 according to the rating guide on this website. It could be driven as is, or restored easily with a paint job and some upholstery work.
