Edsel.com reports that less than 6,000 of the 110,847 Edsel's produced have survived. It has been estimated by other sources that less than twenty-five (25) 1959 Edsel Corsair Convertibles have survived. This car has not only survived, but its frame-off restoration has been officiated and autographed by the original Ford designers of the Edsel, Roy Brown (Head Designer), Jim Arnold and world renowned C. Gayle Warnock -- these autographs are located under the trunk panel and bring indisputable provenance to this fine restoration. This car has spent most of its life in a climate controlled garage showing only 3,300 miles. It runs and drives like new and would make a fine addition to any collection or may be used as a daily driver, the choice is yours.
