Here’s another black and red station wagon that Peter R found for us. This wagon couldn’t wagon couldn’t be more different than the Chrysler Town and Country I just wrote about. This Edsel is listed on eBay with a BIN of a lofty $14,500. These are rare cars, but once again, unless there is great demand for a car it is not going to be valuable. It’s located right across the river from me in Davis, California. There is said to be only a little rust. The seller has had the chrome redone and the stainless polished. It will need a complete interior. The paint scheme was actually offered on this model. Here’s and example of what this would look like when complete. On one of those car shows they’d round this thing up and have it done in a few days. I’m thinking without the magic of television this project will take a little longer.
The dash has a fresh coat of red but not much else. Hopefully everything is still with it!
This 390 is not original but it was running when the project was started.
There are a lot of parts included with this Edsel but there are likely some of parts missing as well as the glass and interior. Besides assembly, sourcing parts and and installing an interior there will be electrical and suspension work. If the paint and body work was done well and if there is not much rust and if the parts are mostly complete could this be a worthwhile project at some price? The seller will be losing money but the question is how much will he be able to lose? The finished car could be really nice but not worth top money because the engine and drivetrain are not original. Your comments on this wagon will be very interesting.
