Edsel convertible 1960, color red, with many new parts. new hood carpet. windshield rubber. needs restoration but really special.

Today More than half a century after its spectacular failure, the Edsel has become a highly collectible item among vintage car hobbyists. Fewer than 10,000 Edsels survive and they are considered valuable collectors items. A mint-condition Edsel convertible from any of its three model years may sell for over $100,000. The rarest Edsel is the 1960 Ranger convertible: only 76 were built. Approximately 25 survive today. While the Edsel's front end design was considered "weird" or "too different" by contemporary buyers and critics, many other car manufacturers (such as Pontiac, Jaguar, BMW, Subaru, Lancia, Alfa Romeo, and Saab) have employed similar vertical grilles successfully in their car designs. Many of the Edsel's features, such as self-adjusting brakes, gear selection by steering wheel buttons, etc., which were considered "too impractical" in the late 1950s, are now standard features of sports cars.(bron wikipedia)
