22: 1958-60 Ford Edsel
The Ford Edsel was an experimental car that had a lot of unique features to it. Unfortunately, the unorthodox style of the car just didn’t resonate with consumers from this period. The Edsel was too far ahead of its time for consumers to grasp. While the performance was on par, a lot of the other features were just too quirky for drivers to get used to seeing in a new car (via Road and Track).
The button-mounted transmission shift was one such feature that we didn’t see again up until recently. Ford was innovating at such a high pace that the designers of the Edsel were trying anything to make the car a smash hit.
