1959 Edsel Ranger1959 Edsel Ranger, I am the 3rd owner, car was originally out of Texas. The original owner loved the car and kept it until she passed away in the late 1980s, car basically was stored in warehouse since. Some people refer to these types of cars in this condition "survivors".
Mechanically all sound. Durable dependable and peppy "Thrifty Six" engine was gone through completely as well as manual transmission several years ago. It is all good and sound. Drives nice and straight down the road, plenty of power despite being the smallest engine choice available. Manual transmission shift well, cruises fine all day long at 65. There is less than 1500 miles on drivetrain. Believe me, you are lucky to find an Edsel with this engine and transmission package as it's SIMPLE and serviceable. Car has 4 brand new 8.00 X 14 WW tires, only have about 700 miles on them.
Paint is basically original and never wrecked, jambs, truck firewall dash all still quite 1959 crisp. Roof area and upper portions were spotted in original color, clear coat. Looks good. Car has patina including scratches, dings, rust spot, chips etc, but, again solid and presentable. I could of easily repainted the exterior but, I choose to keep its original charm.Chrome and stainless mostly all excellent original. Windshield has some stone chips but, otherwise glass all good, Windows roll up and down effortlessly.
Dashboard is in very nice un-tampered condition. Heater works, radio works but, tuning band is weak. Headliner again original and very nice. Door panels near mint condition. Carpet shows wear but, decent. Front seat again shows ware and tear and should be recovered. Back seat good, but could be redone too. I found a place with NOS fabric available now, I have the samples. That info will be passed along to new owner.
Trunk is in great original shape inside, original liners, spare tire, jack, nice! I have original service manual as well which will be included.
I am selling this car due to lack of quality indoor parking space. This car is far too nice to get stuffed into some dusty corner. Besides I just don't have time to even enjoy it. My loss your gain.
