The car is Petal Yellow with a brown and white interior. I bought it from CA earlier this year, and the body is rust free, except for some rust thru on the radiator support (which is the same as Ford). The paint has faded thru the years but is still nice, some touch-up on it. The seats have been redone. The car is a factory radio delete and still has the plate on the dash, though the chrome has peeled off after the years of being in CA, no antenna hole ever drilled. Only options are a heater and back-up lights, it does have dual exhaust with glasspacks. Since I've owned it, I have had the original carb. rebuilt, new correct dual-action fuel pump with glass bowl rebuilt, replaced the coil, points, condensor, rotor, cap, wires (original style), and plugs, new Edsel battery with correct battery cables, hoses and OEM hose clamps, air filter, fan belt, new parking light lenses, new FoMoCo headlights, radiator has been recored, new correct trunk floor mat (not installed yet), put new correct carpet in it, and have Edsel repro floor mats in it to protect the carpet. Windshield has 2 marks on it that need to be fixed. Good tires on the car. Extra generator and an NOS Windshield Washer Set-up not installed. Car runs well and is a great driver. Has a clear title. It gets lots of looks.
