When I purchased the 1959 Edsel (stock# 1417), I thought it was red and white and was celebrating that there was a 1959 Ford Fairlane 500 (stock #1427 not yet on website) to go with it. What a cool set those two would make. Both models needed cleaning up. At some point I noticed that the Edsel almost looked beige and red. Was that even a factory color for Edsel in 1959? I did my research. President Red and Desert Tan was a factory color combo! Wow, now I'm even more excited. I lost a matched pair, but I gained what is likely a lesser known color for the Edsel. That tan is pastel to the max.
