Hype car
1958 Ford Edsel
About this creation




The real thing -just for reference;


The front... The single-most important part that makes (and breaks) the Edsel.
I tried to be original, although this would clearly have been better in 7-wide.
Also I found that installing just 2 headlights looked more correct than 4. I am sorry if you disagree: Go make your own version! ;-)


Some of the suffering endured;


The Edsel together with some other inventions of the ´50ies;

Very nice, small model, good shape! I'm gonna build a big one soon I think.

I saw 6 of that exact model in the town I live in the other day. Shame it is known as "the Plymouth sucking a lemon" car. The 1960 Edsel lost the iconic grille, and became little more than "a poor man's Ford Fairlane". Cute LEGO car.

I really like the shape and lines of the edsel, and you did it justice, it s beautiful! and its things like the 2-4 light system that makes me do my own models, as it s sometimes impossible to fully reproduce some models accurately, the art of a beautiful design is what counts to me, and you score high everytime! lol!

I can't understand, why everyone says 'uhhrg Ford Edsel is ugly'. I love the Edsel, especally the model you reproduced. And because it's build very accurate I'll give it a 5/5.

Quoting Murdoch 17 ...BTW: I copied your Juke Box machine design for my Cafe Corner MOD. Is that ok?
Thanks alot for your nice comment! The jukebox is not my original design anyway... ;-)

I have seen one of these cars in real life. It was in Saint Charles, Missouri last year, and it took about 3 miniutes before I realized it was an Edsel. (It had no writing on it and it was lime green with a Techno-like dark green print.) Anyway, I'd have to say this matches the prototype perfectly except for the headlights. (It looks better without 4 headlights, if you ask me!) I also think it looks better painted black and white than the lime / dark green one I saw! ...BTW: I copied your Juke Box machine design for my Cafe Corner MOD. Is that ok?

Very nice! I always loved Edsels, and '58 was probably the best year out of the short time they made them!

Another beauty - these will all add up to a stunning street scene... as for the headlights, it would look cluttered with four.

Remarkable and no, you're absolutely right. 2 headlights is all it needs. You can't do everything in this scale and even so it looks recognizable definitely so don't make a fuss about it. It looks just fine to me. Very neat style you got there. I love the fact that you've shown us the technique for that front of yours :))

"Don’t believe the hype". Another beauty from you. I can see what you mean about the headlights - It would probably look cluttered if you included 2 more. The collection look fantastic and I absolutely love the duke box.
