1958 Edsel Ranger 2 door hardtop

While its roll-out was highly publicized in the fall of 1957, the 1958 Edsel was a marketing disaster for Ford and for Ford’s corporate strategy for meeting General Motors’ product line for product line. Total U.S. and Canada Ranger output for the model stood at an estimated 21,301 units. Of those units, 4,615 were U.S.-built two-door Sedans, 7,414 were four-door sedans (6,576 U.S./838 Canada), 6,005 were two-door hardtops (5,546 U.S./459 Canada), and 3,667 were four-door hardtops (3,077 U.S./190 Canada). Prices ranged from US$2,529 to $2,990     wikipedia

Two tone paint was an option for this model as was a heater ($92), radio ($95), air conditioning ($417) and I think seat belts were still an option at this time.  Times have changed.

  1. It looks huge. Do you drive it or sail it? It looks nice. Why didn’t it sell?

    The first thing that comes to mind is the song by the B-52’s “Love Shack!”

    “I got me a car, it’s as big as a whale!” And we’re head in’ on down to the Love Shack. I got me a car and it seats about 20!”

    Ha! Ha! Nice photos!
