owners find parts and advice, current Edsel owners to show their cars, and
future Edsel owners to find out just what they're getting into. It's
all about keeping as many Edsel automobiles on
the road as possible. No other agenda, no politics.

The Edsel Registry
The on-line Edsel Registry gives you a spot on the web where
you can tell the world about your car, ranging from how many awards that
it's won to how much the salvage yard gave you for it. Any Edsel
in any condition - if it's got an Edsel patent plate, people want to know about it.

Latest Edsel News and Edsel Page Updates
Available on newsstands now (maybe it's time to retire that expression) - the July 2014 issue of
Hemmings Classic Car features a
cover story on the 1960 Edsel convertible. It's actually the
20th anniversary of the first time a '60 convertible graced the magazine's cover. They should
keep that tradition going for July 2034.
Coming soon: New updates to the Edsel Promo pages.
With Spring around the corner, now's the time to check out the Edsel reproduction parts and services on the
Parts Suppliers page. Henry Klinger Edsel Products has
just announced a new line of reproduction lens gaskets. And the newest Edsel-specific supplier added to the site is
ClassicFordRadiator.com, specializing in Edsel radiators, heater cores and other
hard to find parts for all three model years.
And speaking of Edsel radiators, does anyone know the whereabouts of a white 1960 Ranger that was owned by either Kaiser
Aluminum & Chemical Company or Harrison Radiator in Buffalo, NY? The story of this Edsel test vehicle was
added to the Edsel Chronicles page, and if you've ever run into a car
with padlocks securing the hood over its prototype aluminum radiator, let us know!
Last but not least, the new 2014 Edsel Price Guide and historic price trend graphs
were updated, too. Check out the huge jump that some of the more collectible models achieved over last year's price guides.
When's the last time you had the chance to see Edsel Promo cars in their original crates? I mean like, a case
of 12 brand new from the Promo factory cars in their original boxes? How about three cases? What if
they were for sale?
Check out the latest update to the Edsel Related Items For Sale page for details.
In February, Hot Wheels released yet another version of their 2009 Edsel mold,
this time to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the film, American Graffiti,
in which a 1958 Edsel played a supporting role. See this and other updates
on the Edsel Collectibles page.
ROY BROWN, JR.
Friend of the site and Chief Stylist for the Special Products Division of Ford Motor Company (which later became the Edsel
Division), Roy Brown passed away on February 24, 2013 at the age of 96.
Known in Edsel circles as the "Father of the Edsel", Roy was active in driving and promoting the car well into his 90's. He
was also a leading contributor the Lincoln Futura (aka the Batmobile from the 1966 television series "Batman"), and his most
successful line, the Ford Cortina. In the 1970's he worked on designs for Thunderbird and Econoline vans.
But the Edsel, its design and Roy's never waivering devotion to its style, is why he'll always be fondly remembered.
Below are links to sites that go in-depth into Roy's history and legacy.
