Edsel Tail Fins – The Edsel can only be considered as a good idea at the wrong time. A Ford historian once said of the Edsel – “Its aim was right, but the target moved”. The Edsel got its name from the son of founder Henry Ford – Edsel B. Ford. The Edsel was produced in 1958, 1959 and 1960 only.
1958 Edsel Citation Tail Fins
Styling for the first Edsel was very controversial. The grille was refered to as a “Horse-Collar” and the slim horizontal tail lights were called “Ingrown Toenails”. The 1958 Edsel line comprised of the Ranger, Pacer, Corsair and the Citation.
1959 Edsel Tail Fins
Styling was toned down on the 1958 Edsels horizontal tail fins. Disappointing 1958 Edsel sales dicated a reduction in models offered by Ford. For 1959, Edsel offered only the Ranger, Corsair and two station wagons.
1960 Edsel Tail Fins
1960 Edsels took on the all new 1960 Ford design or styling with smal tail fins. The horse collar grille was changed for the better. But even with lowering the price the Edsel was still unwanted by consumers. Ford halted Edsel production in November 1959 of the new 1960 Edsels after less than 3,000 were made.
1958 Edsel Station Wagon Tail Fins
Tail fins were totally different on the Edsel station wagons. If you wanted a Edsel wagon in 1958 you had 5 choices – A two door Roundup, 6 or 9 passenger Villagers and the 6 or 9 passenger Bermudas.
1959 Edsel Station Wagon Tail Fins
Small vertical tail fins were part of the new 1959 Edsel styling. Station wagon production was cut to the 6 or 9 passenger Villager and only 8,000 were made. Total restyling occured on the 1960 Edsels including the tail fins. Only about 300 Villagers were made in 1960 and they looked very similar to the 1960 Ford station wagons.
