Vintage Snapshots: Edsels In The Real World – 1950s & 1960s

Every once in a while the topic of Edsel must be tackled. No lengthy essays about the marque’s brief and star-crossed life on this occasion. Much has been said about its questionable styling, doubtful placement within Ford’s hierarchy, and lousy market timing (’58 recession!). Instead, we’ll revisit Edsel with period images. Some include owners, while some are just Edsels out in the real world.

There’s some irony when it comes to vintage snapshots of Edsels. On one end, the brand was too short-lived to leave many images behind. On the other, the hype for the brand was such, that there are probably more surviving pictures than it would have been otherwise.
