EOC Member’s Car of the Month – April 2008
EOC Co-Founder Dave Sinclair’s 1959 Edsel Corsair Convertible
My ’59 Corsair convert was delivered to the Bakersfield, CA area and spent its life in the dry Central Valley climate, until I acquired it from Tom and Barbara Wolfe of Porterville ,CA. in Feb. 1978. The Wolfes were very early EOC members.
The car is painted Jet Stream Blue, a seldom seen color on a convert. and only a handful are known. It had 102K miles on it when I bought it, and now has 148K miles. It is not restored, and much of the paint is original. Its equipped with the 361 Super Express V-8, Dual Power Drive, Polar-Aire A/C, power seats and electric wipers. It has been a great and trouble free tour car over the past 30 years, and I hope to drive it to Edmonton this summer for the 50th anniversary of the 1959 Edsel introduction.
