In the early-1950s, the motoring public seemed to have an unquenchable thirst for fully equipped, high-powered, chrome-laden conveyances. Ford Motor Company took notice and reacted. High expectations created by one of the largest and longest advance marketing campaigns ever to be undertaken for the launch of an automobile caused the public to flock to dealerships for the Edsel's introduction. Unfortunately, the large, expensive Edsel that was planned to be all things to all people suddenly stood for excess, not progress. As a result, sales were lackluster, and the cars that were produced, equally, were discounted as used cars for years to come. Some Edsel aficionados believe that less than 6,000 of the 110,847 Edsels produced have survived. It has been estimated by other sources that less than one hundred of the 1,343 1959 Corsair Convertibles have survived. This standout Edsel has been nicely maintained over the years; its paint, chrome, and trim have a patina only acquired with age, but it does not detract from an otherwise interesting automobile. The two tone turquoise and white exterior is perfectly complemented with matching upholstery. It is equipped with an automatic transmission, Continental kit, pushbutton radio, and properly outfitted trunk with spare and jack equipment. Owning an icon such as the Edsel will always make a statement, and this convertible can be driven and enjoyed while preserving history.
