1958 - 1959 - 1960 Edsels


Edsel Owners Club, Inc

The Edsel Owners Club currently publishes a newsletter, the Big E, 6 times per year plus a full color annual calendar. Your subscription is included with club membership, and gives you access to information on Edsel restoration tips, Edsel history, and a huge collection of Edsel-only classified ads! Prior to 2003 there was a newsletter (The Greenline) and a quarterly Edsel magazine (The Big E) which were merged, a partial index is included below to assist in finding past articles. 

Hint: you remember a topic was addressed, but have no idea what issue it was. You can use this page to narrow your search. For example you know "compass repair" is in one of your old issues somewhere [open Internet Explorer - then Edit - then Find on page].. Aha!)
