Continuing with the theme how boring car interiors have gotten, here’s a stunning (in both senses) 1958 Edsel convertible, that shows how effective a two-tone car can be even if the two tones are black and white. Of course, with all those unusual shapes going on, here at Cars In Depth we don’t really need an excuse to feature 3D pics of the Edsel. The B&W color theme continues on the interior of the car. Recently restored, and accompanied by matching black and white dogs, this Edsel really stood out, even in a car show run by the employees of GM Design.
Ford went all out giving the Edsel distinctive interior features to match its original styling. The speedometer is a rotating drum. Ford took Chrysler’s pushbutton transmission selector and went one step further for the Edsel, putting the buttons in the middle of the steering wheel. You may laugh, but it anticipates today’s steering wheels that are loaded with all sorts of switches and controls.
