I received today the Oxford Edsel ( in Yellow and in Black) and Mercury (green). I am happy with the result and I agree with what others have said about these models. The yellow Edsel was tricky to find on their site, as it did not show with the other available models. I used the site's search for "yellow Edsel" which located the item and I was able to add it to my cart. The Continental kit on the back of the Edsel is a separate piece and easily removed. It looks like the bumper can be cut off and the extension filed away to model a stock bumper. It should be an easy modification if the material is not too hard to file. Famous last words.
I just ordered a few of the Oxford models on Amazon. But, the estimated shipping time is about a month and a half. They are probably shipping from Europe. But I'm not in a hurry, and I was just glad to find a source to buy them from. I'm one of those people who don't like using a credit card on line. With Amazon, I just get an Amazon gift card at the local grocery store to pay for on line purchases.

Thanks for the heads-up, Sylvain. I am a big fan of the bathtub-style Nash models. As you have surmised on forum-auto the difference between the Ambassador and Statesman is indeed the wheelbase, with the Stateman's being shorter. Structurally, the cars are only different from the cowl forward.
