19. Ford Edsel

When you talk about the worst car ever, you probably have never talked about an Edsel. The ugly little sedan made its way onto Ford dealerships and was shooed away as quickly as it hit. The Edsel did have some redeeming qualities but nothing worth noting. The Edsel was not noticeable or appealing by any stretch of the imagination. In fact, sales were so bad that Ford barely mentions the car to this day.

When you think about cars that had lackluster quality, the Edsel is among the top. While the car could have been a good offering, rough time and effort just weren’t put into it. Ford was busy working on creating another car which ended up becoming a smash hit, the Mustang. Had the Edsel survived would we see it to this day? Probably not.
