1959 Edsel Corsair Convertible
I will be listing a few cars here in the next week or two for my family. We are reducing are number of cars, so please see my other listings as well. I am not a dealer.
The Ford Motor Company introduced the Edsel brand in 1958 and had high hopes for its success. It was available in versions based on both the large Mercury and smaller Ford Bodies. Unfortunately for Ford and Edsel, the brand was a commercial failure due to several reasons, such as a weak economy and sagging mid-priced cars sales. For 1959, the Edsel line was simplified and the up-level Mercury-based models were no longer offered and prices were slashed. Unfortunately, this was too little, too late, as sales continued to fall from 68,045 in 1958 to 44,891 in model-year 1959. The Edsel line was quietly dropped before the end 1959 calendar year, after only a few 1960 models were assembled During its brief lifespan, the Edsel brand was able to acquire a cult following and had became one of the first collectible cars of the Fifties! Even today they remain one of the most recognizable automobiles of all time.
This particular 1959 Edsel Corsair Convertible is painted in the numbers matching color of solid President Red (Code FF). It has traveled only 53,465 miles and has Edsel's biggest 1959 engine, the 361 cubic-inch, 303 horsepower 'Super Express' V8. Mated to the engine is a 'Dual Power' three-speed automatic transmission. The base price without options was $3,072.00 and there were only 1,343 Edsel Convertibles built in 1959. Less than 100 remain today! This car is completely original and has won trophies at many of the local shows (including the Gold Class Trophy at a local Edsel show).
