My Edsel Citation conv. restoration

Post by sidesho_bob1961 » Wed 2. Dec 2009, 07:51

Attached are a few photos of the 1958 Edsel Citation conv. I'm currently doing a frame-off restoration on. This was a Calif. car before I purchased it which has aided greatly to the ease of restoration. All foctory assembly line markings were in tact for duplication.

I can't open or enlarge the photos either. They look promising though.

They're working now & looking good.

With the relatively low production numbers in mind; can you get replacements parts (NOS or aftermarket) easily for Edsels?
