1958 Edsel Ranger

1958 Edsel Ranger 2 Door Sedan (all original barn find survivor)
We pulled this car and a 4 door out of a local farmers barn last month. We’ve been cleaning and going over this car so that we can describe the good and bad we found.
The 58 Ranger 2 Door Sedan was driven to our town of Jerome Idaho in 1969 by the new priest taking a position here from Oregon (Car still has the original 1969 Oregon license plate). The priest didn’t need a car and sold it to a parishioner (the farmer and his wife). They stored the car in their barn in 1969 and it has been there ever since. The farmer has passed away and his wife decided to sell the cars. We were able to buy the cars and get them moved a couple of weeks ago.We hope this explains the provenance of a survivor worth saving..
All original survivor (except new tires and a old Holley carburetor)As Is (we have not preformed any mechanical other than cleaning the plugs and gas in the a carb we put on to make sure engine runs) (the original carburetor is missing and I bolted on a old Holley carb to see if engine would run, it fired up and ran)
The body and trim is in exceptional condition.
