BF Classified: 1959 Edsel Villager Garage Find!

Seller’s Description: An awesome survivor! This car runs and drives great for a 61-year-old car. It will need a new set of tires to make it fully roadworthy.

In November 2019, it was pulled out of a garage where it sat since 1991. We had it taken to a mechanic who replaced the master cylinder, wheel brake cylinders, carburetor overhaul, fuel pump, battery, and muffler. We have a video of it being pulled out of the garage for the first time and also of it being driven back home after being worked on. The Interior has some damage, due to years in storage. The body is in great shape with surface rust in some places. One piece of trim has come off, but we still have the piece. Clean title.

Fair value was determined using Hagerty’s website.

Price: $12,500
Location: Birch Run, MI
Mileage: 45,660
Title Status: Clean
VIN: B9UT738729

    Charles Bronson, your car is waiting! I
    still recall to this day that he drove such a car in “Man With A Camera”. Very cool
    and would love to have it. If Ford would’ve used this body style when the
    car came out in late ’57, the brand may have survived into the early ’60s at least.

    I love unusual longroofs like this one! Considering how many Edsels coming out of the woodworks recently, maybe they weren’t so bad after all…?

    Seems like a fair price on an unusual car. Good luck!

    This car is not listed on the Edsel registry, so you can be the first to list it, like it is a new car.

    Just goes to show you, keep anything long enough and even an “Ugly Duck” can turn into a “Swan.”

    Edsel died before Henry. If he knew such a ‘dreg’ of a design was going to bear his name he probably would have raised the roof at the Ford Mansion and the car may have never been built.

    Maybe they could have named it the “Eisenhower” instead.

    “Hey Joe, where’d ya get that wagon, and what is it???

    Oh, man, that’s simple. I got it off Barn Finds and it’s a 1958 “Eisenhower.”
