1959 Edsel Villager

1959 Edsel Villager

Tim had been looking for a big American wagon for some time before finding this beautiful example in California. A few phone calls and a harrowing road trip later, the car now resides with our publisher in sunny Florida. We don't plan on any major changes, but our Edsel will see some small updates to make it a more liveable and useful vehicle.
