Edsel Bermuda (1958)


Edsel Bermuda (1958)

While the Edsel was long regarded as a flop - embarrassing for parent company Ford, as the brand was named after Henry Ford's only son - its unique looks have ensured its collectability. And the rarer a model is, the more collectable it becomes, which is why the Bermuda is probably one of the most sought-after in the range. When it arrived, the Bermuda was available in either six- or nine-seater configuration, the latter costing just $57 more for the extra seats. The car truly was a family vehicle, with such convenient extras as Tele Touch auto transmission, where the gear-selection buttons were in a circular pattern in the center of the steering wheel, and air-conditioning, power windows, and even power lubrication, which greased all the steering and front suspension points at the touch of a button. The car was a very smooth drive and had plenty of power for long hauls too.
