1959 Edsel Corsair convertible
The Corsair was made by the unpopular Ford brand Edsel in 1958 and 1959. It was a full-size car that shared a wheelbase with some cars using the Mercury name.

The Corsair was available as a convertible, coupe, hardtop, and sedan. The hardtop and sedan were both available with 4 doors. There were two engine types used in these cars: a 332 cubic inch V8 and a 410 cubic inch V8. The wheelbase was 124 inches in 1958 and 120 inches in 1959. Weight ranged from 3,600 to 4200 lbs, depending on body type and options. Transmission was available in 2 speed automatic, 3 speed manual, and 3 speed automatic. These cars used Edsel's patented Teletouch shifting on the automatics, which was a rotary dial in the middle of the steering wheel. Many drivers did not like this, because they didn't want to shift on accident when trying to honk the horn. Edsel actually equipped the cars with a electro-hydraulic switch to prevent this kind of thing, but that didn't change consumers minds on the idea. Like the Citation, the Corsair was built based on a Mercury body, so it was more upscale than the Pacer and Ranger, the Edsel model names based on Ford vehicles. Although they were not popular when new, not many of these cars were made, so they are coveted by many in the collector car world. You can usually find a few of these listed on eBay. Be sure to factor in the seller's location before you bid, as it will affect the transportation price.
