Description
Lot #660 - 1 of 1,343 1959 Edsel Corsair convertibles produced. This stunning Red and White example sports the following features: top of the line Super Express Engine (361cid/303hp FE series), dual-power transmission (3-speed automatic), 2.91:1 rear axle, power steering, brakes and convertible top. The VIN confirms that it is a Corsair convertible (the R code) with a Super Express engine (the W code) as well as the Louisville, Kentucky production plant (the U code). The data plate indicates a Corsair convertible (code 76E) as well as exterior red & white color (code FE), February 25, 1959, production date (code 25B), dual-power automatic transmission (code 4) and 2.91:1 axle ratio (code 5). Edsel.com reports that less than 6,000 of the 110,847 Edsels produced have survived. It has been estimated by other sources that less than 25 1959 Corsair Convertibles have survived. While the Edsel brand has long been considered the most notorious bomb of automobile history, it incredibly has experienced a growing reputation resurgence among collectors in recent years. It would be a challenge to find a more stunning and correct example of Edsel's 1959 flagship and most expensive model, the Corsair Convertible. This fine investment-grade vehicle is head turner that's fun to drive, show and enjoy. It runs, looks and drives like a dream.
