1959 Edsel villagerThis is not your grandmas 1959 Edsel villager 6 passenger station wagon!!!! This car packs some serious attitude and get a ton of attention everywhere it goes. We just had it at Bonneville speed week and everyone was taking pictures of it as we drove by. The car has had some good modifications done to it to add to the safety, drive ability and over all looks of the car. Modifications are as follows
- New E/T aluminum wheels all the way around
- New tires all the way around
- New disc brakes installed on the front
- New GM mini power brake booster installed to replace outdated Edsel vac boost
- New front ball joints upper/ lower left and right side
- New front springs ( areo star van springs to lower it)
- New low profile shocks on the front
- New shocks on the rear
- 2 inch lowering blocks in the rear
- New full length Dual exhaust
- Transmission was just rebuilt with less than 2000 miles on it
- New carpet
- Seats were re done last year
The car has the original 361 CI FE 400 super express engine backed with a Ford-O-Matic 3 speed automatic transmission ( just rebuilt) that runs and drives great!!! The rear end is a 9 inch ford, rear breaks are in good working condition, as well as i have a new set of brake shoes new in box that go with the car for when they need replaced. The front brakes are new with less than 2000 miles on them. They are a brand new disc brake kit that uses the original spindle. i also have a all the drum brake parts for the front that have less than 500 miles on them. I had replaced all the front drum parts before i found the disc kit that i wanted, so all the new hoses, wheel cylinders, drums and shoes come with it. Also has a new radiator in the car, probably a few years old.
The car has factory power steering, power brakes (booster updated with GM mini booster conversion), and air conditioning. The air does not currently work as it was missing the condenser when i got the car, other than that all the parts are there and look to be in good shape.
Front and rear seat were re done last year, Bench seat in the front and fold up Bench in the rear. So you can fold the seat down to haul things or for a good time at the drive-in movies........
All the doors and windows are in good working order
very little rust in the car, the only places we have found is a small area on the lower front fenders on each side, which you can see in the pics.
This car is not a restored trailer queen, but it is a great hot rod to cruise around in, and take on short or long trips. It will get tons of looks and lots of questions since its not everyday you see an Edsel station wagon!!!
CLEAN OHIO TITLE IN MY NAME!!!!please feel free to ask any more questions about the car
