Very original car with its original window sticker invoice ($3,374.53 - what a bargain!)
This Edsel was purchased in 1976 from the original owner, and has never been driven since it changed hands.  It was garaged for 24 years and has been outside for 6 years.  It needs to be completely restored, but is in very good condition for its age.  The exterior is in good shape - no wrecks or body work ever.  The paint was getting thin on the front fenders and some primer was showing through, so I had them sprayed with primer.  Very minor rust on the lower left rear fenders around the wheel well, also at the very bottom of the driver's door and lower corner edge of the front fender.  All chrome and stainless pieces are in very good shape.  The interior needs to be restored but is not totally gone.  The carpets were removed and the floor is in very good condition.  All windows function and are in good condition.  Has the original seat belts, with shoulder harness belts for the front.  The trunk is in good condition with the original spare and jack.  The engine has not been started since 1990 and needs to be brought up to current specs, but is 100% original.

The car needs: Front windshield (cracked), rear windshield, transmission, the "E" from "E-D-S-E-L" lettering on the hood, and two pieces of chrome on the front edge of the hood.  The tires will need to be replaced.  They hold air, but are dry.

This car will make a very easy restoration project with very little but very hard work.
