1958 Edsel Pacer Convertible


1958 Edsel Pacer Convertible For Sale

According to Classical Gas Enterprises in Texas, this 1958 Edsel Pacer Convertible features a newly rebuilt 361 V8, refurbished standard transmission, and perfectly functioning new convertible top. We’re told there were 33k original miles on the car before the complete restoration.

From Classical Gas Motors: “The Edsel brand became launched on September 4, 1957 with 18 models and an established separate Edsel Division of Ford. After Ford President Henry Ford II and his brothers, Benson and William Clay, introduced the new 1958 Edsel Citation convertible to enthusiasts, Edsel’s second 1958 ragtop was a Ford-designed Pacer model version. Only 1876 units were built, and were $800 less than the fore-runner Citation. Designer Roy Brown’s objective was to come up with a car that looked nothing like anything else on the market. In that approach, he was successful. But public acceptance became another challenge for the new Ford division, as history indicates.”
