The treasure trove that is eBay Motors continues to produce. Today's big find is the 1958 Edsel Ranger motor home conversion you see here. The forward half of the erstwhile sedan has been fused to a 60's-era camper trailer that sleeps up to six, according to the seller. (Unfortunately, no pics of the living space are included.) Said to be a big attention-getter wherever it goes (no surprise there), the patriotically-colored Edselbago has visited 48 states. Power comes from a 390 Ford V8 hooked up to a C6 transmission with a floor-mounted shifter. ( The Edsel's steering-wheel-mounted Teletouch pushbutton tranny is now just for show.) Claimed weight is 7,000 pounds, and the whole package is apparently good for 15-16 mpg. Best part: it can be yours. As of this writing, the high bid's $1,958 (someone's being clever), and the seller's reserve hasn't been met. Get in on the action by clicking here.

      Reminds me of the "Toy Hauler" conversion of an old trailer, I saw this weekend. They'd taken a loading ramp and grafted it onto the back of a beat up camper-trailer.

      Agreed, a very cool car/truck. I loved the Edsel--I was about 10 years old when it first came out. That motor home just cries out for real modernization but hey, it's a great job so far. Too bad I don't like camping!

      that's one of the coolest things i have ever seen. as a kid i used to dream of getting a edsel, simply because of the complete and utter failure it was... therefore it must be easy to find and cheap!!! (or so my 12 year old mind thought)

      I drive by this thing every day on US 231 in Indiana and have always wondered just what the Hell it was. It is certain to be the only one of its kind.
