The internet’s leading classic car website has made an interesting choice as this week’s Deal of the Day. If you are into collector cars you’ll admire the 1959 Edsel Corsair Convertible they selected from the fresh listings on the internet. A couple of interesting things are happening with this pick. First, this is a very rare and desirable classic car to own. Secondly, the price it right.
PC Classic Cars has posted this car for sale on the internet. They specialize in hot cars at affordable prices. They really hit it right with this one. Ford procduced the Edsel to create a separate category cars. Their intention was to create a separate company to compete with themselves on a parallel level. Maybe they thought they could double their income. Anyway, Ford’s Edsel experiment has created a rare cult group of collectors who live in an Edsel world.
PC Classic Cars discloses that this 1959 Edsel Corsair Convertible is in “driver quality” condition. (See dozens of photos on the ad page.) That is collector car lingo for “it’s not a show car, just an average collectible driver.” They disclose that the paint and bodywork needs TLC. It comes with the original 322 ci V8 engine and a two-speed automatic transmission. Notice the Coker wide white wall radial tires which look great on the car. They tell us it runs and drives well, and handles well. It comes with dual exhaust. These Edsel convertibles are very hard to come by. Click here to view it in video and hear the engine run. This is a great car for any collection.
The reason they chose it as their Deal of the Day is the price. PC Classic Cars has it listed at $20,500. That’s a great price for a “starter car,” for a person who would like to participate in the collector car hobby. It should be considered that this car would have to be restored to bring it up to show quality.
The Deal of the Day feature was created for the front page of the Cars-On-Line.com website. Cars-On-Line.com is the collector car hobby’s leading website.
