"This beautifully restored example shows wonderfully from all angles!  The exterior paintwork and chrome are in magnificent condition, and the under hood presentation is ready to impress!  It showcases a solid original frame and body panels, with a very comprehensive cosmetic restoration to like-new condition.  The carpeted trunk does lack the original spare, but is ready to haul mountains of luggage to your next touring event.  It comes to us from a prominent collection in Texas where it has been cared for with great appreciation.  Unfortunately, the St. Louis Car Museum does not have enough documentation to support a true, actual mileage claim.
This Edsel starts with ease and will impress the driver with its confident road manners."

(Red/White interior trim combination was not a standard option.  The stamped VIN plate's TRIM code is blank, indicating this was a custom order.)
