1958 Edsel Citation - $24,500

1958 Edsel Citation Hardtop For Sale or Trade Freshly restored, beautiful 1958 Edsel Citation finished in Copper Metaillic and First White with complimentary White Vinyl with Copper Cloth and Gold accent interior. Powered by the E475 motor, a 410cid, 345 bhp V8. Feature the unique Teletouch automatic transmissions, with push buttons clustered in the steering wheel hub. This particular car was manufactured by Ford's MEL (Mercury Edsel Lincoln) division on September 27, 1957 at their Somerville, Massachusetts production plant. Restored to high standards, the car includes many extra parts including over a dozen trophies from various New England car shows. This car is a real head-turner. The Edsel Citation is a top-of-the-line automobile that was produced by Edsel in 1958. The Citation was built on the longer, wider Edsel platform, shared with Mercury, and with the Corsair. The Citation represented the highest trim level available within the Edsel brand. In addition to deluxe interior appointments, the Citation also received extra stainless steel details and a gold-anodized aluminum cove panel. The cove (or rear quarter-panel "scallop") could be painted either the color of the body, the color of the roof, or a third color (tri-tone paint option). It used a ladder type frame with welded box side rails and independent ball-joint front suspension. Riding on a 124 in (2997 mm) wheelbase with a 22° approach angle, the Citation was powered by the 345 bhp (257 kW) 410 cu in (6.7 L) MEL V8 with four-barrel carburetor. Edsel’s Teletouch automatic transmission, which placed its drive-selection buttons in the steering wheel hub, was standard. While its roll-out was highly publicized in the fall of 1957, the 1958 Edsel was a marketing disaster for Ford and for Ford's corporate strategy for meeting General Motors' product line for product line. The Citation is known as one of the ugliest cars ever made, it bore the notorious "horse-collar" grille that critics said resembled "an Oldsmobile sucking on a lemon." Total Citation output in the U.S. and Canada for the model stood at 9,299 units, of which 5,588 were four-door hardtops (5,112 in U.S. and 476 in Canada),Prices ranged from $3,500 to $3,76
