This 1959 Edsel Corsair Convertible is powered by a 361 cubic-inch V8 engine that is capable of producing over 300 horsepower. The car has four-wheel hydraulic actuated drum brakes and a three-speed automatic transmission. There were only 1,343 examples produced of the Edsel Corsair Convertible with only few surviving in modern times. It has recently been treated to a mechanical restoration and is in excellent running condition. For 1959, the Citation was the top-of-the-line Edsel vehicle. It was basically a Edsel Ranger with a more powerful engine and many amenities as standard equipment. The Edsel Company had been formed by the Ford Motor Company as a line of vehicles that were to satisfy the thirst of many American buyers who wanted a high-powered, fully-equipped automobile. Sadly, the Edsel's were introduced when the economy was struck by a recession and the pool of potential buyers dwindled. The Edsel marque lasted only a few short years, ending after 1960. This example is one of the few that remain and is in superb condition. The blue paint scheme is striking and the interior alluring.
