1958 Edsel Citation Oregon Showroom
1958 Edsel Citation - One year model - Michael Jackson and the Jackson 5 cruised in this very cool Edsel! - Newberg Showroom
This exquisite Edsel was formerly owned by Tito Jackson (of Jackson 5 fame). It is extremely rare and all original (except paint). It is powered by a massive 410 cu in V-8 with 280hp and producing 475 ft/ lbs of torque. It has the unique "teletouch" steering wheel mounted push button 3 speed cruise-matic and a dealer installed "ARA" air conditioner. Other features include power steering, power brakes, radio and heater. It also has fresh dual exhaust (low restriction) and correct wide white wall tires.
The Citation represented the highest trim level available within the Edsel brand. In addition to deluxe interior appointments, the Citation also received extra stainless steel details and a gold-anodized aluminum cove panel. The cove (or rear quarter-panel "scallop") could be painted either the color of the body, the color of the roof, or a third color (tri-tone paint option). It used a ladder type frame with welded box side rails and independent ball-joint front suspension. Edsel’s Teletouch automatic transmission, which placed its drive-selection buttons in the steering wheel hub, was standard.
