Model overview

Model description

The Edwards America was just one of the many neat but unsuccessful sports cars to come out of 1950s America, but at least it was one of the best-looking.

West Coast businessman Sterling Edwards, who was already a successful racer, wanted to build his own cars as well. Drawing on Italian performance cars like the Cisitalia for inspiration, Edwards hired Norman Timbs to help design the car. Ace mechanic Phil Remington of future Shelby American fame also worked on the project.

Unfortunately, when it came time to actually sell the car, Edwards ran into the same problem that so many upstart carmakers face. The Edwards America was just too expensive to build and sell at any kind of scale. Only five were ever completed, including just two convertibles.

Underneath the Edwards' fiberglass body is a beefed-up Henry J frame. Several different engines were used behind the massive eggcrate grille. The prototype used an Oldsmobile Rocket V-8.
