1958 Edsel Citation
Convertible Car for sale by American Classic Rides in Fox River Grove, Illinois 60021
In just a few short years, Walter P. Chrysler took his company from an unknown automotive manufacturer to fourth in the industry. Walter Chrysler was a perfectionist with a deep mechanical background. This aspect, probably more than anything, helped to make Chrysler Corporation grow quickly.
A viable alternative that's still daring and different, the 1968 Chevy Impala SS 427. SS 427 Impalas are very distinctive and unique. Sales were modest, so finding an Impala SS 427, especially a convertible, could be a little challenging.

Despite being Ford's most expensive failure (the equivalent of 4 billion in today's dollars spent on marketing and development), the Edsel was the most advanced car in the intermediate price segment. Packing features found in vehicles 50 years later, such as steering wheel mounted controls, early child-proof door locks, a padded dashboard, internal hood and trunk releases, power windows, "dial" operated climate control, and more, the Edsel was at the forefront of innovation. And this model, the Citation, was the crown jewel of the new marque. Benefitting from extensive nut and bolt restoration within the last 15 years, this vehicle has additionally had the water pump replaced, brake master cylinder rebuilt, and new mufflers installed, all within the last 100 miles.
