1958.
(No such thing as a "1957 Edsel". '58 was the first model year.)

Here is another pic of this very car in the Wroughton Science museum: http://objectwiki.sciencemuseum.org.uk/wiki/1958_Ford_Edsel_car
There is no chrome insert in the tailfins, so this must be a Pacer.

Not a Ranger owing to front fender spear.
Not a Citation since no metal insert panel, as you say.
But could be a Pacer or a Corsair.
The Ranger/Pacer shared it's body with Ford while Corsair/Citation used the Mercury body.
Cannot tell for certain from either photo whether this car is Ford or Mercury based, but I'm leaning toward Corsair, as it appears to have the flatter Mercury roof line.

Argh, I forgot about the Corsair... Yes, it looks rather like a Corsair, indeed.

Other photo from Wiki confirms this is a Corsair. The "log" bulge in the front fender is readily visible in that shot.
