Edsel Citation convertible
The top-of-the-line Edsel, it bore the notorious “horse-collar” grille that critics said resembled “an Oldsmobile sucking on a lemon.”
Actually, the grille looked tasteful compared to the anti-tailfin taillights that stretched all the way across the trunk lid.
Inside, the push-button transmission control was located inside the steering-wheel hub — another rarely imitated design feature because drivers confused it with the horn.
The Citation is the landmark of bad taste.
Ford put the Edsel out of its misery shortly after the start of the 1959 model year.
