The 60 Edsel Station Wagon is finally back together and running.
I was able to find all the parts put it back together before doing the paint, glass, upholstery and chrome. All the trim is on except some of the glass trim and the roof trim.
The interior is back in with new carpet and door panels (not installed yet). I have a roll of seat covering material but no head liner. Seat belts were added. Could not find the ash tray for the back of the front seat.
The inner fenders, radiator support and hood latch support were sand blasted primed and painted.
The front gravel pan was missing and taken from the sedan parts car.
The surge tank, fan and spacer were damaged and I found them on Craig's list in California. New water pump, fuel pump and fuel line to caburator installed.
All the original wiring was repaired and used. new heater hoses and radiator hoses installed.
New exhaust system was found on E Bay by Classic Exhaust that fit just like the original stock one.
The exhaust runs over the axle then to the outside of the frame where the muffler is mounted using the stock hangers.
Dash wiring and guages were repaired new ignition switch, head light switch and dimmer switch installed.
The floor pans were covered with Dynamat, heat and sound insulation, from the fire wall to the back of the rear seat.
New carpet kit front and rear in the orignal color installed along with a new gas petal.
New starter and generator and voltage regulator with rebuilt power steering pump and cylinder with new hoses installed.
When I drove the car for the first time it did not go to far as the transmission fluid was low so I parked it for the night the next morning there was puddle of rear end oil on the floor so I dropped the drive shaft and removed the axles and pinion gear to replace all the seals and found bad pinion bearings and races so all the seals,bearings,races and u joint are new. The second test drive went much better the car runs, drives and stops good and every thing works.
I have spent $7,500.00 in parts and engine rebuild and 650 hours to get the car drivable and asking $9.000.00 for it if anybody out there is interested contact me at email@example.com.
This is the 1960 Edsel 2 door sedan parts car that I will put up for sale.
