The 1958 Edsel Pacer convertible is for true classic car lovers. After all, it launched this now legendary nameplate, and an example like this has true coordinating style inside and out.
When you want rarity and distinction this is the exact place to start. This is the first year for the Edsel name, and convertibles are traditionally some of the most expensive versions out there. As a result, you're looking at one of only about 2,800 Pacer/Citation convertibles produced in the inaugural year. Each year was distinctive in the Edsel's sort run, and the '58 was the most extravagant of them all. They dared to be different with the grille, and that unique piece set off a flood of styling elements like the contoured hood and gleaming dual front bumpers. And the side trim is like true artwork. There's a beautiful line that starts behind the dual headlights and almost seamlessly runs through the doors. Plus, the it took a true stylist to dream up the rear piece that corrals the tailfin as it continues around the rear and creates a well-defined separation of the colors. And speaking of the paint, this one has an amazing style presence as the Coral Sand is nicely complemented by the creamy white that encircles the rear. And with white factory hubcaps, wide whitewall tires, and a clean white convertible top, this has the kind of two-tone presentation you'll love showing off.
A classic droptop like this is all about a great coordinating interior that you share with the world. So you can tell there was plenty of time and money spent making sure the colors inside and outside would look great together. Legroom is expansive, so it's the perfect classic for those who want to look authentic while carrying around family and friends. You'll slip behind the factory wheel and gaze at gauges that were clearly inspired by the jet age. This one really has a great period-correct presentation, right down to the AM radio that's still on display.
This is a W-code Edsel, which means the correct 361 cubic-inch V8 is under the hood. Not only is this believed to be the original motor, but also most people will assume it is correct just by the presentation. Those who know Edsels expect to see what's in this engine bay, including a yellow block, white air topper, and matching valve covers stamped with E-400 (the motor's torque rating.) There's even a Holley four-barrel carburetor on top. This V8 is a great powerhouse to move this convertible with ease. So it's a great cruiser thanks to features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and aluminum radiator helping to keep it running cool.
Rare, distinct, and premium – an Edsel is now one of the most interesting pieces of automotive history to possess today. So don't miss out, call today!
