This Edsel is in great mechanical shape.  Newer exhaust and engine work done in recent years.  We have the 2007 registration sticker in hand.  This Edsel has no rust underneath!  There is very little surface rust.  The car runs and drives, although it needs a new set of tires.  The front driver side tire is flat and in bad shape.  The car needs a lot of cosmetic work.  It needs new paint and would benefit from some interior work although the interior is in OK shape.  No tears in seats or headliner issues.  All electrics seem to work.  It needs a new battery.
