Allen and Annette Deplazes

This is an article we published in Auto Restorer the month of January 2009. Since then, we have written the story we found out more information which is "Ed" is one out of approximately 750 4-door hard tops made that year. He is also equipped with one of the ORIGINAL Edsel engine blocks. There were approximately 800 Edsel blocks made before switching to the Mercury engine blocks. He was ordered special for his first owner who passed away before he could acquire Ed in Seattle, WA. We found Ed in a car port under a pile of boxes. We are the "3rd" owner of Ed. Ed will continue to make smiles everywhere he goes and we will make sure he is shinny and ready for the attention.
