1958 Edsel Pacer Series B

Contrary to popular belief, the Edsel wasn't a complete disaster. The Ford designers had created a car that was distinctive and recognizable. The vertical grille was intended to be a modern interpretation of the classic tall radiators of the past. The Edsel designers purposely used less chrome. Pacer models included basic interiors built on a smaller wheelbase chassis with a smaller V-8 engine. All Edsels had features that were popular in the 1950's. An option on all models was a push-button transmission. The Edsel designers had updated the idea by placing the buttons in the center of the steering wheel. Other options included tri-color paint, a compass, an inside-outside thermometer, a tachometer, and a windshield washer.
