Greg Corcoran submits:
This Edsel is frequently seen around Longmont, rain or shine.  The owner bought the car at auction here in northern Colorado about 18 months ago, and was told it came out of an estate of an Edsel collector, but has no documentation.  It has green big E windshield stickers I recognize as EOC made in the '70s.  Interior is partially original and partially an older reupholstery job.  Paint is a partial repaint over old, amateur rust repair.  Engine and transmission seem original.  The car does not have any evidence of ever being equipped with Power Steering, which seemed odd for a Corsair.
