The Edsel Citation is a top-of-the-line automobile[3] that was produced by Edsel in 1958. The Citation was built on the longer, wider Edsel platform, shared with Mercury, and with the Corsair.[4]
Citation was one of two Edsel model names later used by another auto manufacturer, Pacer being the other.
The Citation represented the highest trim level available within the Edsel brand. In addition to deluxe interior appointments, the Citation also received extra stainless steel details and a gold-anodized aluminum cove panel. The cove (or rear quarter-panel "scallop") could be painted either the color of the body, the color of the roof, or a third color (tri-tone paint option). It used a ladder type frame with welded box side rails[5] and independent ball-joint front suspension.[1]
Riding on a 124 in (2997 mm) wheelbase with a 22° approach angle,[1] the Citation was powered by the 345 bhp (257 kW) 410 cu in (6.7 L) MEL V8 with four-barrel carburetor.[6] Edsel’s Teletouch automatic transmission, which placed its drive-selection buttons in the steering wheel hub, was standard. (This was a US$231 option on Ranger and Pacer models.)[6] A basic heater (as a US$92 option) and radio (at US$95) were available, and air conditioning was optional as well (at US$460),[6] plus an automatic truck opener,[7] seat belts, and rear door safety lock[3] that could only be opened with the key, preventing children from opening the door while the car is moving.[7]
While its roll-out was highly publicized in the fall of 1957, the 1958 Edsel was a marketing disaster for Ford and for Ford's corporate strategy for meeting General Motors' product line for product line. The Citation is known as one of the ugliest cars ever made, it bore the notorious "horse-collar" grille that critics said resembled "an Oldsmobile sucking on a lemon." Total Citation output in the U.S. and Canada for the model stood at 9,299 units, of which 930 were U.S.-built convertibles, 5,588 were four-door hardtops (5,112 in U.S. and 476 in Canada), and 2,781 were hardtop coupes (2,535 in U.S. and 246 in Canada). Prices ranged from US$3,500 to $3,766.
