This may not be true, but I heard it anyway.
That Ford polled a sample group asking what single feature they would like to see on a new car. After collating the individual responses a car was designed. The Edsel was the result. Urban myth - I don't no.

PIC: and story of a 58 Edsel by Dick Johnson #41144
Not a huge fan of the Edsel, but for some reason, the Pacer, guessing here its by Bruce Gibbins #41144.1
Yes I agree; its plainness is strangely attractive. (EOM) by Jack Dodds #41144.1.1
You know, Jack, I'm kinda reminded of the girl at highschool or wherever by Bruce Gibbins #41144.1.1.1
Excellent comparison. (EOM) by Jack Dodds #41144.1.1.1.1
Reminded me of Bob Jackman's informed comments on his video... by John Roberts #41144.2
Folk law has always espoused that Edsel was damned by its own design, but more informed by Bruce Gibbins #41144.2.1
That is true I believe; plus some annoying QC issues. Too bad anyways. (EOM) by Jack Dodds #41144.2.1.1
How could anyone at Ford have thought that front end was beautiful? by Al Dorado #41144.3
The Edsel stylists took a chance and lost. Its a icon for failure but by Jack Dodds #41144.3.1
They have faces only a Mother could love, Al:) by Bruce Gibbins #41144.3.2
I think the polled group pulled a fast one or were bought by Jack Dodds #41144.3.2.1
