RARE HARDTOP COUPE, 292 V8, AUTO, LASER STRAIGHT, GREAT BRIGHTWORK, SUPER CLEAN!
We all want our classic car to have a story, and that's what makes this 1959 Edsel Ranger instantly appealing. But when you dig deeper, you see a rare car with great paint, plenty of originality, and a value price. So yes this little lemon face is an irresistible deal.
Edsels have really come into their own on the classic car market. While they were born out of a legendary failure to find buyers, today that makes them a distinct and rare choice. In fact, this hardtop coupe Ranger is only one of 5,474 produced in '59 – and you can already imagine how few have survived today looking this good. There was a professional repaint over some original and very straight sheetmetal. The two-tone is intricate work as the new glossy red was applied within the sweeping side trim. In fact, all the major brightwork on the coupe is complete and impressive. So this one has a solid presentation that goes well-beyond the famous horse collar grille. The Edsel division was only alive for three years. Each year had distinctive styling, and this is arguably the best of the bunch for the classic car collector. It combines some mass-produced Ford elements so some major repair items are easier found than the first-year, and also this carries more distinctive styling than the third-year cars.
The interior retains its 1950's style cool. A great pattern on the original-style black and silver vinyl looks fantastic against all the bright trim elements. You'll slip behind the factory wheel and gaze at gauges that were clearly inspired by the jet age. Legroom is expansive, and with the hardtop body style, it's bright and airy inside. So this is the perfect classic for those who want to look authentic while carrying around family and friends.
Under the hood is the correct 292 cubic-inch V8. This motor has much more going for it than just looking fantastic with its golden air cleaner, golden valve coves, and everything else in a high gloss black. It's the same V8 that helped the Thunderbird gain a reputation for being both a powerhouse of a car and a comfortable cruiser. So that means a nice operation and plenty of parts availability. But more than practicality, with the correct Mile-o-Matic two-speed automatic transmission and modern Firestone tires hiding behind those fantastic whitewalls, this is a great classic for getting out on the road.
Rare, interesting, and affordable – an Edsel is now one of the most interesting pieces of automotive history to poses today. And at this price, it's an exceptional example won't be with us long. Call today!!!
