Edsel


1958 Edsel Citation Convertible

The brightest and the best in the debut year of what would turn out to be Ford Motor Company's biggest flop.  The most interesting and luxurious of the '58 Edsel line, and not cheap when new.  Despite considerable size and weight, quite speedy, thanks to a big block V8.

It featured a full array of late 1950's gadgetry, such as "Teletouch" automatic transmission (push buttons in the steering wheel hub), a rotating drum speedometer that changed color as speed rose (a throwback to the 1930's), and every power accessory known to the civilized world.

The Citation convertible would be the most expensive Edsel ever built, and was the second lowest in production this year, making it a highly coveted commodity.
