Bid with confidence – you will not be disappointed in this truly wonderful motorcar! HISTORY OF THE 1957 EDSEL CORSAIR: Specifications: 225bhp, 332 cu. in. overhead valve V8 engine, two-barrel carburetor, Mile-O-Matic two-speed automatic transmission, coil spring front and leaf spring rear suspension, four-wheel self-adjusting drum brakes. Wheelbase: 120" In the early 1950s, when plans were set in motion by Ford’s future Chairman, Ernest Breech, for the creation of the Edsel, the economy was strong and growing. The motoring public seemed to have an unquenchable thirst for fully equipped, high-powered, chrome-laden cars. It was the goal of the Ford Motor Company to satisfy that thirst on “E-Day” -September 4, 1957 when they introduced the Edsel. With high expectations, and as a result of the largest and longest advance marketing campaign ever to be undertaken for the launch of an automobile, the public flocked to dealerships for the Edsel’s introduction. However, few would go home with a set of Edsel keys as many were disappointed with the look and high price of the new brand. The large, expensive Edsel that was planned to be all things to all people suddenly stood for excess, not progress. It did not help that the economy was struck by recession and a spike in gas prices that led consumers toward the purchase of fuel-efficient compact cars. Sales reflected the public’s disappointment and production was halted in 1959, with Ford writing off its $400 million investment in the brand, making the 1960 model year the last, and leaving the Edsel to become one of the most famous failures in the history of the automobile. Robert McNamara, who went on to become the Secretary of Defense for President John F. Kennedy, had been brought in by Henry Ford II as one of the “whiz kids” who would help turn around the fortunes of Ford after the war. He disliked the idea of separate divisions within the company, and having already been successful in cancelling the Continental program, turned his cost containment skills towards the Edsel. In 1959, the separate wheelbase and body used in 1958 was eliminated in favor of sharing the Ford platform and inner body structure. While the sharing of platforms has become a common practice in today’s automotive industry, it was quite innovative for the times. Edsel recently marked the 50th anniversary of its introduction. The passage of time, its unique design and interesting history, coupled with a short production run, have made the Edsel highly collectible and there remains to this day many Edsel enthusiasts and car clubs dedicated to its preservation.

Financing

Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


Terms available up to 144 Months
