Car has just had a new top installed.  It apparently was a pretty bare bones model with no power options, 2 speed automatic, 332 engine, etc.  I have been in the Edsel club since 1972 and this is the first 59 convertible I have ever seen which was Mist Green.  (No doubt due to the fact that the only available upholstery for this color was the black, silver and white vinyl which is far from being a beautiful color combination.  I bet some poor dealer had a hell of a time selling this one!)
