I came across this model on eBay while searching for something else and while it may not be perfect (no model is) I thought it was a very nice representation of Edsel's last hardtop.  The color is perfect and since I am unable to find a '60 Hardtop anywhere else, this one does nicely.

Wow, very cool ! What a great addition and excellent subject matter. BoS have done some really nice releases of otherwise-not-available models.

Nice model and color.  I think the 1960 Edsel could have done rather well if not for the rear end styling which, imo, is as bizaare at the '58 front end.  Only 2,848 of these Edsels were built during an abbreviated two-month production run, making them quite collectible today, particularly the hartop coupe.
