I need a 58 Edsel part badly! Column shift part in Ford, Edsel & Mercury - 1954 and Newer Posted July 10, 2011 The 3 speed Edsel column is not interchangeable with any other make or model. I was lucky and met a local Edsel nut. He has enough parts to build 2 or 3 Edsels. He had the column I needed and it was only $20 for the whole column. Thanks for the help. Glad I found that part.
