Edsel Ranger at Ewen Fields
One of several American cars on show at a classic car rally held at Ewen Fields in aid of SSAFA, a charity that provides practical support and assistance to servicemen and women, veterans and their families, was this 1958 Edsel Ranger 2 door sedan. It was built in September 1957 in Loiusville, KY and is one of only 4615 of this model. It has a 3 speed automatic gearbox, self-adjusting brakes and was imported from Colorado in 2002. The engine, gearbox and interior are all original.
The Edsel was named after Henry Ford's deceased son. Although a failure when first introduced in 1958 only a few examples remain and it is classed as one of world's most collectable cars.
A coloured image of the car can be seen on Geograph.
