That has IOE written all over it. What would you power it with? Miata 1.8L?

Nope. I'd stay all Ford. 460 big block.

Either that, or one of the 5 speeds Ford stuck behind the 460 in the trucks.

The Edsel should already have a 9" rear, so that's plenty stout. Swap in some 3.50 gears and it'll be a hoot.

I feel like if this Edsel ran in crapcan, a more modern livery should be put on it. How's this for a heavy dose of irony?

A good friend of mine daily drives a 59 Edsel Ranger powered by a 2.3L Turbo Ford..

In reply to John Welsh :

I'd vote for one of Vaughn Gittin Jr's mustang liveries. The older Falken one is probably too tasteful though.

You know that Edsel's wheelbase is the same as an F-150 right? Tastefully lifted, nice tires, I would name it the Ugly Mudder.

Oh look, a donor.

Or, that also means it's very close to a Crown Vic. Do with that thought what you will.
