The Edsel was an over-hyped, over-priced “Car of the Future” that nobody wanted. Ford launched this division in 1958 and closed it down in 1960. The very name Edsel has come to be synonymous with failure. Strangely, the cars seem to be pretty much equal to any other model of the time but Ford made it out to be ground-breaking and the public was disappointed.
Since the brand was so short-lived, I was a little surprised to even see one in this car graveyard in Gainesville, Georgia but, I guess every car comes to rest somewhere.
