1958 Ford Edsel Citation Convertible - KOCC - Handcrafted - Dated - 1995 Club Edition Ornament - Sculpted by Hallmark Keepsake Artist Don Palmiter - QXC4167
Considered by many today to be a collector’s item, the Edsel was conceived in the auto industry’s booming years. By the time the car was released, however, a recession had begun and consumers were looking for economy models rather than big, stylish cars with gadgets like “Teletouch Drive” – a push-button transmission control located in the steering wheel hub of some early Edsels.
Between the car’s first model year (1958) and its last (1960), only about 110,000 Edsels were sold, making them quite rare. Today, Edsel enthusiasts have formed clubs and even host national conventions.
Don Palmiter sculpted this historic, Club-exclusive “1958 Ford Edsel Citation Convertible” to complement the Classic American Cars Collector’s series.
Ornament is MIB with normal box aging. Has No Price Tag as this is a Hallmark Keepsake Ornament Collector’s Club ornament.
