Notes:
Purchased from an Edsel collection that was being auctioned at Brandy Brow Auto Parts in Plaistow, NH.  Originally a rust-free California car, this Edsel underwent a professional restoration which was completed on October 10, 2009.
The car was repainted correct Ember Red with Silver Gray Metallic scallops.  It won the second place junior award on its first appearance at the AACA Fall Meet on October 12, 2009.  Gorgeous looking, excellent running/driving top-of-the-line Edsel.
