1959 Ford Edsel

I am in love with Ford Edsels ...
I've read all about the failures of the Ford Edsel, but who cares? Cars from the late 1950s are the prettiest vehicles in human history, and the Edsel models are endearing. At J&R Vintage Autos in Bernalillo, New Mexico, a beautiful two-tone white and turquoise 1959 Ford Edsel convertible sits in their car collection. On this page are my photos. Also, there is a walk around video at the bottom. Enjoy!

I've come to love the notorious "ugly nose" of the Edsel. Such a gorgeous car! :)

The smooth turqouise line on the body is sublime. :)

In New Mexico, we have to not only remind people that we're in the "USA" -- but also that some of our older cars are horseless carriages! :p)


Five minutes, walking around.
