Description

For sale here is a very nice, and rare, 1958 Edsel Citation 2-door hardtop. The Citation was the "TOP-of the Line" Edsel in '58. This Edsel is rare with only 2,532 Citation 2-door hardtops made that year. This one is also a low mileage example, with only 54,025 miles.
The E-475 410 CI V-8 runs well and sounds good. Starts right up with new battery. The car has good power brakes but they have somewhat of a hard pedal and may need slight adjustment. The Teletouch pushbutton trans operates well. My mechanic just installed a new carb kit a couple weeks ago. The carb may need a small adjustment also. The exhaust has been recently redone and looks shiny and sounds nice. There is a small trans fluid drip right after driving, but stops shortly after. The WWW tires are in good shape with plenty of tread and really set off the beautiful, shiny, and correct hubcaps.
The body on this classy 50's cruiser is really pretty good! Fairly straight too. There are a few paint bubbles on the hood and some filler on the bottom edge of the body, on the rocker, about where the back edge of each door is. Also a little under each headlight. This is the only bondo I've noticed. The paint does shine up pretty well. The stainless all around is good and the rare side quarter panel Citation trim is in excellent condition as you can see in the photos. The bumpers are solid and decent. The glass is good. The trunk area is nice with a WWW spare. The underside of this one looks very good. Very,very solid. The floors and trunk are in good solid shape.
The interior is actually in pretty nice condition. Much of it was redone by the previous owner about 5 years ago. The original patterns and look were observed. The seats are nice and comfortable. Nice door panels. Very good dash. Needs headliner fixed. All 4 windows work well. Has the very rare compass. Fuel gauge works. The door locks and courtesy lights with dash switch work. Headlights and taillights are working. The orbiting speedometer works well. The odometer works and reads 54,025. Heater fan blower works. I have been tinkering with the turn signals, but don't have them working yet. The horn, clock, and wipers are not working currently. I think the horn is an old broken wire and the wipers are a fuse. The original radio crackles and hums through the original speaker.
Overall, this is a very good 1958 Edsel Citation. This one will make someone a very impressive 50's cruiser. You see quite a few Edsels, but not many 2-door hardtops, and even more rare stilla Citation!
