Welcome from the west coast Gord. Where do you live in Alberta. I know of a couple around Dead Rear.
I did a quick search. Here's a couple.
1959 Ford F-100 Pickup Truck - Strathcona County Collector Cars For Sale - Kijiji Strathcona County Canada.
1960 Ford F-100 short box Pickup Truck - Alberta Collector Cars For Sale - Kijiji Alberta Canada.

Thanks Bro, found those two last night, eventho the one in Calgary is a Ford, I plan on having a look on Sat. Found a couple in Sask. that are drivable farm trucks, both 59 and both Mercs for about 2500.00 but ones ten and ones 12 hours from me, so if anyone knows someone around central Alberta who has a car hauler and wants to make some cash, let me know. I used to call it Dead Rear too, but now that I've lived here just over a year I call it Red Neck, Alberta. thanks again

I was born and raised in Alberta. Lived in Red Deer when I was 2ish. Lived and worked in Rocky for 35 years. If you need a little getaway drive west of Bowden about 10 miles. Look for a place called Dean's Repairs ( I think that's his name)on the north side of the road. They have 10 acres of old cars. Might be a truck there for you.
Also there's a wreckers right at Bowden that has old stuff too. If you're bored you could cruise up on highway 12 northwest of Eckville. Look for Terry Federsen's. He deals in ford trucks if he's still alive.
Happy hunting!!

Went to Rocky last weekend, met Terry McCaw lot of beautiful rides there. Stopped at Leslieville on way back saw some nice 61 unibody mercs and fords but I want the 57-60 body. Going to Cowtown on weekend to look at that 59 anyway, might as well check out Bowden on way back and eckville Sun. thanks again bro

My pleasure!
To think Terry didn't know squat about anything automotive 15 years ago. It's handy to have money and hire your own bodymen and mechanics. Ya I'm a bit jealous but at least I can check my own oil.
If I think of any more trucks I'll let you know.
Speaking of Leslieville. I know a guy out there that has a 4000 mile original 54 Ford shortbox that's stored in a heated and a/c'd part of his garage. It was his grandpa's. Awesome truck. Like a time capsule.
Goodluck on your travels.
