FOR SALE: This 1959 Edsel Ranger.  I'm asking $1575.

The engine, starter, generator, carb, etc. are all original, except air filter.  It has rare factory options power brakes, power steering & windshield washer.  It has a little rust on rocker panels, on bottom of one front fender and a little on rear fender.  All chrome, badges, emblems, etc. is in very good with nothing missing.  I have one set of keys.
Everything, hood, trunk, windows (all glass orig FoMoCo), doors, etc. opens/closes, rolls up/down and are in very good condition.  Interior is very good and the seats have seat covers, (I took the rear one off), roof liner and door panels are in excellent condition.  Dashboard is very good, complete with all knobs, radio, clock, heater, glove compartment, etc. and rugs are original.  Have an extra grill and lens.  Never been in accident.

This Edsel is in Peoria IL, and it was purchased 40 miles from here at the (dealer decal still on car's trunk, see photo), Galesburg Lincoln Mercury Dealer, 120 North Broad Street, Galesburg, Illinois 61401.
The car has been sitting since 1999.  It belonged to an old lady in Peoria, who fell ill and last used it in that year.  It was always parked in the barn.  The last time car ran was in 1999 when ladyís nephew used it.  Then it went to estate sales, a local bought it and then storage.  I bought it 2 years ago & garaged.  Engine spins, but this car should be towed or trailer-ed.  I donít have time and wife needs garage.  I have described this car to the best of my abilities.  I am not a mechanic and have not touched the car other than it being trailer-ed to my garage.
