Default Canadian hot rod found

I dug this out of an old railroad box car this week in edmonton alberta canada. It had been there since 1970. It is a 1957 ford ranchero. It has a small block chevy(rumor is that it is a 301), a three speed stick and a ton of character. I am attempting to get it going right now so i will post updates as soon as i can.

Nice score! Amazing what jewels are hidden away. A few blocks from me is a nice '55 Pontiac 2-door sedan running a SBC with a tri-power and 4-speed. It's been parked in the old guys garage for probably 30 years. Not for sale.
