One owner 1959 Edsel Corsair convertible with new brakes, tires, shocks and convertible top replaced at about 57k miles and has been stored in a heated garage for the last eight years.  Car has the owners manual and a copy of the original window sticker.

This vehicle seems to be in great mechanical shape, however it is hardly ever driven so it never makes it to the highway or driven in the rain or so on.  The car starts and runs great for the short trips we make in it.  The cosmetic appearance is nice but not restored.  The seats need to be redone, and all the chrome has slight pitting.  The body has 3 small dents and one dent in the rear bumper.  There is NO rust that can be found and it turns heads!!
