Information as of:  June 2003

Owner:   Phillip A. Buchs
Location:   Richmond, Indiana
Owned since:   1970

Mileage:   34,279
Condition:   Runs, needs some restoration
Originality:   All parts are factory authentic for the car

Accessories included:   Power Steering, Power Brakes, Clock, Two-tone paint, Radio was missing when my father bought it.

Condition is rough, but it still runs and drives.  If it had brakes.

I believe the mileage is accurate because there is little wear to the steering wheel and the brake pedal is in good shape, the exhaust is still original welded unit and is in good shape.  My father bought this car off a small car lot near our home in Tavares, Florida around the year of 1970 when no car lot wanted an Edsel on their lot.  He brought it home and put it in the garage and there it set till his death in 1993.  At that point my siblings wanted to hall it to the junk yard because it was not worth anything to them.  I could not allow it to be crushed and destroyed so I brought it home with me, to Richmond, IN. where it still resides.  It is presently setting in my barn waiting for me to fix its brakes and refurbish its paint.
