Matt Young, of Topsham, Maine says he’d “rather sell it than plow around it this winter.”
He’s asking $2,500 for this 1958 Edsel. He got it in trade for a late 1940s Ford. Matt does a lot of swapping. His business cards say he’s into "anything automotive.”
Young says the car can be driven and that the original engine is under the massive hood. He proudly points to the steering wheel which featured one of Edsel’s many original ideas, pushbutton gear shifting. And the two tone beige-black upholstery is a hint that, many years ago, the car was distinctive.
Pricing began at about $2,700 and went as high as $3,766, according to Wikipedia. Today, a well restored two door 1958 Edsel is worth about $21,000.
