It's all about the car.


Edsel Registry 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

Winter 2013-2014
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.

Summer 2013
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.
   

Spring 2013
  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.
