The Big E

We've talked about the Edsel before, so I won't go into the history of the marque again, except to say that I've always had a soft spot for these underdogs.

This Edsel hood ornament would usually be in the center of the hood, but this car was pretty heavily customized and featured one on each fender. How heavily customized? The front clip was all Edsel, and from the windscreen back it was all Ford Ranchero.

The owner called it a "Fordsel".

  1. That Front end is all stock. The Fender ornaments are stock. I have a 59 edsel. Basically this is a ranchero with a edsel front clip. Not that crazy, Ive seen a few at car shows
