The white and turquoise Edsel convertible in the lead image is parked off to the left-hand side of an unidentified dealership in 1958 (the cars were only offered for sale at stand-alone Edsel sale agencies.)
The attention-getting poster in the side window offering an Edsel for fifty-eight dollars a month may appear to be inexpensive now, but that works out to five-hundred and eleven in 2018 dollars and the figure may have been for an entry-level model. The base price of one of these convertibles is reported to have been three-thousand eight-hundred and one dollars; both figures show that the cars were fairly expensive automobiles.
