1960 four door hardtop

Recommended Posts

Just bought a 1960 four door hardtop ranger it looks like there were only about 150 of these made.

Are they worth a lot or not?The car has 45 k miles Looks like someone repainted it at some time.

Any info would be helpful.

Anymore photos of it? Personally I think they looked much better than the '60 Ford.

I really hope no one makes a lowrider out of it.

I'm not sure yet. It  Needs the gas tank cleaned. It was on the road in 1996 for a few days but sat since.

going to pull the tank this weekend.

Should be easy.

I'm hoping this thread will have lots of updates. I really like the 60 Edsels. My aunt and uncle had one. I think they bought it new but sold it a number of years later. They lived in the Providence, RI area at the time.

Got the tank off lots of rust on the inside but the tank looks new on the outside.

Will try to get it steam cleaned Monday then sealed.

Some Edsels had V-8s(292, 361), some had sixes(223 Cu. In.). What does your "new" Edsel have?

I'm sure a lot of parts from a 60 Ford will interchange. Looks like you have some good progress.

The engine is a 292 with a two barrel carb, or at least that what the code W in the vin indicates.

The T is Sherwood Green Metallic and the trim 23 is for Green Vinyl and Brown Pebble cloth. It's hard to tell if the seat material is original in your photo.

You car was built 10/02/1959 and has a  3.10:1 axle.

Too bad you're on the wrong coast.

It's a possibility but I would have to think about it some more.

I would like to see the west coast again.

Shipping coast-to-coast by a reliable company need not

be an impediment if there's a car you want far away.

 

Just factor the shipping cost into your offering price.

Enclosed transport by a reliable carrier such as

Passport Transport is about $2000-2500 for such a 

distance, I found.  I have done it.

 

Nice Edsel, by the way!

Sorry but I'd prefer to use the 2.5K on a car itself then blowing it on transporting. That's why I try to limit my searches locally.

FYI your car has a 60 Ford front bumper on it. Still a nice car!

I totally missed that. I thought it looked a little unusual in the front view
