1960 Edsel Ranger

The Ford Motor Company produced the Edsel in 1958, 1959 and in 1960; only 2,846 units were manufactured. Seventy-six convertibles were produced during the 44-day production run in 1960. Of these 76 examples, 60 have been located; 29 are in good original condition or restored, 6 are under restoration and the balance either need restoration or no longer exist.

This Edsel Ranger Convertible came equipped with a four-barrel carburetor on a 352 cubic inch V-8 engine producing 300 horsepower coupled to a three-speed automatic transmission. It sits on a 120-inch wheelbase and weights 3,836 pounds.

Options on this car include radio, heater, rear fender skirts, spinner wheel covers, electric wipers, wind shield washers, wide white wall tires, dual spot light with mirrors, power steering and backup lights, all of which boosted the base price of $3,000 to $3,500.

Since its 1985 restoration, the car has been driven 15,000 miles.


This is the rarest of all Edsels, only 76 of this model were produced and 58 (76%) have been located (some destroyed, some still exist, some parted out). We equipped with a 352 cubic inch V8 engine, four-barrel carburetor, and a three-speed automatic transmission. It has been driven almost 15,000 miles since the restoration was completed in the late 1980's. It was driven with the top down from Maryland to Denver Colorado as well as other trips from Maryland to Iowa and Florida to attend Edsel Meets.

The list price of this car was approximately $3,500 from an Edsel dealer, which by the beginning of this model year totaled less than 50 surviving dealers (far less than the 1,100 on opening day of Edsel sales on September 4th, 1957).

The 1960 Edsel was only produced for 44 days with a total production of 2,846.

Edsel production ended on November 17th, 1959 with a total production for the three years of 110,846 cars.

A marketing disaster for Ford and for Fords corporate strategy for meeting GMs product line for product line, the 1958 Edsel was unfortunately not what the public was expecting. The Edsel made its official debut on September 4th 1957 in showrooms spanning the country. Craftful and expensive marketing pre-empted this launch, as the extensive advertising kept everyone whispering and wondering about....
