1934 Ford Model 40 Speedster Sells for $1.76 MillionS

We all know the name "Edsel" as the moniker attached to that most ox-harness-faced brand which Ford launched to failure in the mid fifties. It was of course also the name of Henry Ford's only son, a son whose tastes were a fair bit more extravagant than his fathers and shows in this '34 Ford Model 40 Speedster. After a life which saw it passed around and sold for as little as $603, it has passed across the floor at RM Auctions where it commanded a final price of $1.76 million. Check out the interesting history of what may be one of the prettiest Ford's ever at Edmunds Inside Line.
