Gateway Classic Cars is proud to offer a very unique 1960 Edsel Ranger. Produced for only 3 years, this is the last production year for the Ranger. The Ranger was built on the narrower Edsel platform shared with the Pacer. The 1960 model eliminated the infamous vertical Edsel grill and replaced with a more attractive hourglass shaped grill. This particular example is a wonderful example of a low production vehicle. Just 777 2 door sedan Rangers were made in 1960. This Ranger has been beautifully restored and is ready to hit the road again, preserving American automotive history. This car has a fresh coat of Lilac Metallic paint which will certainly help you stand out in a crowd. All of the chrome trim has been replated to the tune of a $5,000 plating bill. It really helps the car pop and will remain a gleaming piece of rolling art for many years to come. This Ranger has the 223 CID "Mileage Maker" Inline 6 cylinder. The I6 runs smooth and the 3 speed manual transmission shifts beautifully on the column. Open the door of this beauty and you'll find an all new interior featuring very unique seat upholstery you'll only find in an Edsel. The front bench provides plenty of room for three across as well as three more in the back seats. There were no mini vans in 1960, but with sedans as spacious as this Ranger, they weren't needed. Interior comforts were limited to a heater and an AM radio. For some fresh air in the summer time, just flip open the vent windows for plenty of airflow. One neat feature on this particular car are the dual spotlights with built in rear view mirrors. Grab a hold and point the light at something in the road, or anything that might need illumination. This is a rare vehicle which many people may not know much about. What a great opportunity to preserve history, and enjoy a very attractive vehicle like none other. There and Edsel clubs and websites to assist with preserving a car like this. To see this 1960 Edsel Ranger in greater detail, visit www.GatewayClassicCars.com.

      Clearly Ford just gave up and ended the misery. The back end looks like it was designed by junior apprenticies who had no budget to work with.

      Ford learned a couple of things manufacturing this car and then releasing it. One, car design must be evolutionary and not revolutionary, or at least, don't announce that it is a revolution. Two, don't bring out a revolutionary new car and price it accordingly. 1958 was a recession year and this car cost about twice what a Ford Fairlane 500 cost. Three, don't call it revolutionary and then just use the underpinnings of a regular even if the underpinnings are modern and excellent. Then, don't throw in the towel too soon. It could have been a great car. It did have a new look and new looks sometimes take a while to grow on you. They should have created, and did, the Edsel Division and called the cars by the four names they had. Good names. Everyone fails to note that Chevy's 1959 wasn't a very good seller, too many wings. Chrysler's 1934 - 1936 Air Flow was a bust as well. Chrysler's PT Cruiser wasn't a hit either but it soldiered on for a while. Ford is said to have lost $250,000,000 and yet it gained a new line of engines and manufacturing techniques which they didn't waste I'm sure. They made it up with the Falcon, Mustang and Maverick. Falcon was a success, Mustang was even a bigger blowout and the Maverick came within a few thousand of selling about the same as the Mustang upon release. In fact, I was so popular Ford was afraid it would lose the Mustang altogether. And finally, the much maligned Mustang II nearly did as well at the 1st Mustang when it was released. Chevy's 1858 Impala was supposed to be the 1957 Impala and when it was finally released its time had passed: big, heavy, thirsty and didn't have the panache of the 1957. 1958 was hard year for auto manufactures.

      If this is what they had originally produced. Edsel would not have bee the object of such initial ridicule.

      Only a six and a stick and radio delete. Super rare even for an Edsel.

      you sure can see the 60 Ford in this car, like the front but not crazy about the tail lights. That engine almost sounds like a diesel

      Nice car, I loved the 1960 Fords and Edsels. I think I would get the engine redone, though.

      good to know.  You do have one heck of a nice car.  I hope it did not set you back too much since you had to include repairs.

      I had to replace the engine because it was burning a quart of oil every 50 miles. I also installed a more highway friendly gear in the rear end so I can cruise at 75 instead of 65 now. I'm happy with the car now but was very disappointed with the way Gateway handled this transaction and I will definitely NOT be doing business with them in the future and will NOT be recommending them to any friends or relatives....
