Description for Edsel Corsair 1958
This is a true barn find! This car has been sitting in a barn for more than thirty years, waiting for the right person to stumble across it. We bought it to restore but have too many other projects, so this one needs to go.
The body is solid, but it appears to have been sideswiped on the passenger side. The windshield is cracked as are some of the side windows, but the all-important rear glass is in very good condition. The side glass is flat and easy to have cut, and there are several manufacturers tat make the windshields even today.
The engine is E475, a 410 cubic inch V8 that was rated at 345 horsepower. The engine turns over well and has good compression, and we believe it would be easy to make it run but haven't had the time to try. The transmission fluid is clean and looks good.
The floor boards are rusted out and will need to be replaced. WE have the original ignition key, but the trunk key is missing. Tail light lenses are gone along with some of the side trim.
The interior is in surprisingly good condition considering how it was stored. The seats are rough, but the headliner is original and could be cleaned up, as could the door panels.
The chrome would need restoration if you planned to restore the car, but it's almost all in fair condition, so it would be cheaper to restore it than replace it.
This could be a restoration project, a custom or a rat rod. All it takes is to bid. Feel free to contact me with any questions and I'll answer as quickly as I can.
