    Paint Color Opinions

    Hi Tom, that was very rare but not as unusual as you might think. Edsel did some red and black exterior colors and turquoise and white interiors. I also saw pictures of a Bermuda wagon with simulated cow hyde interior. Jonquil yellow and gray exterior Pacer convertible with red and white interior. The 50's were fun and with few boundaries.

    Paint Color Opinions

    Hi, I am an Edsel owner a member of both the International Edsel club and Edsel owners club, and an AACA member. Edsel's are a very rare car as only 118,000 were built over three model years. The number of cars that remain road worthy today are probably fewer than 10k. If you are are going to show your car at Edsel meets, these guys will pick up very quickly on the paint if it's not correct, and it will cost you show points. The Edsel people are a great group of folks who can look at a data plate tag and recite what every letter and digit represents in triplicate, without referring to a book. Tri color Edsel's are rare on small series, but less rare on Corsairs and Citations. With that being said, it's your car. The first person you need to make happy is yourself. As an Edsel enthusiast I have one Edsel that was all white from the factory. I painted the roof and cove red and it looks much better... But it's not original. I just had a buddy sell his 58 Edsel Pacer press car on eBay and it sold for $28,500. It was repainted the wrong shade of green and it probably cost him at least 10- 12k maybe more. Paint work is expensive so make sure you understand what is important to you before pull the paint gun trigger. Hope this helps. Hank Davis

    WTB Edsel's

    The original Edsel Roundup in the HPOF class is mine. We have 13 Edsel's, 9 58's, 3 59's and 1 1960. We love them all. I collect all things Edsel and very rarely do I sell anything. My favorites are the 58's but the 1960 models are the rarest based on numbers alone. Only 2800 1960's were built. The cars I am looking for to add to my collection are cars with specific history, features etc. The 59 Edsel does have a little of the middle child syndrome but are very nice cars. I just prefer the other two years. My business website is gotocarguys.com. When you get there click on Hank's Garage. Hank

    One cold Ohio Edsel

    Indeed they are. This car sat in a woods for 21 years until last spring when I got it out and brought it to my shop. It serves as an advertisement for my Edsel collection. It's a 58 Pacer 4 door sedan. Two tone spruce and ice green. Teletouch, radio, backup lights and spinner hubcaps. Car is actually complete. Hank
