Edsels were manufactured by the Ford Motor Company, and I remember them well!

There's a lot of information in this Wikipedia article, including a chart of the various models.

This should be a 1958 EDSEL. Ford's other marque.

Hans, I recall when this car was new. The only automobile dealership in my little home town was FORD. I was 14-15 years old at the time and spotted the transport truck coming into town with a strange looking car. As my buddies and I watched the man unload the truck and we saw the name Edsel name on it, we were totally confused why this car would be coming to a Ford dealer. Later on, we found out it was made by the Ford Motor Company.
I image you were about 3 years old at the time if you were born in 1955. ???

I was nine years old in 1958, and I remember seeing the occasional Edsel on the street. They really caught your eye, you couldn't miss them!

There was also a recession going on at the time and I remember my parents saying that the Edsel was expensive, not worth the money.
