I joined the International Edsel Club in 1991 and set my sights on a 59 wagon.  I found it in Old Car Trader Magazine, Ford Edition, Oct, '92.  It had been part of a collection of The Pate Foundation in Cleburne (Ft. Worth), Texas.  I am the second owner, the Pates themselves bought the car new, probably from Lone Star Edsel.  Parked in 1966.
