A RESTORED 1959 EDSEL
In the model year of 1958 Ford Motor launched a new car named after Henry
Ford's son, Edsel. Ford Co., thought there was a niche to fill between the
Ford car and the next model level Mercury. They thought wrong. There were
several reasons for the failure of Edsel, one being it's different if not
bizarre styling featuring a " horse collar" grill. Another reason was that
there was no niche to fill between Ford and Mercury. Edsel used a lot of
Mercury parts so it appeared to be a lower scale Mercury than a upper scale
Ford. The economic recession of 1958 also helped to kill sales of the
introductory year. This video gives you a tour of a restored 1959 Edsel.
The styling was less severe than the fifty eight model year and looks more
appealing but it didn't encourage sales for the damaged image was already
there. This Edsel is the lower model Ranger. Under the hood lies the six
cyclinder Ford engine with dual Exhaust. The exterior paint on this car is
excellent while the interior uphostery is not original or authentic but
looks great. The bottom line Ranger cost $3,072 and sold 7,778 units out
of a model year total of 44,891.
The two model years did nothing to increase sales and the 1960 model year
was a tacky version of a Ford of which the Ranger model sold 295 two doors
at $2,705, and 1,288 four doors at $2697. So, Ranger model totals for 1960
were 1,583. Edsel was cancelled in November '59 after only making 110,847
for the three model years.
