This very rare Canadian Hawk was  #74 off the line in Hamilton, Ontario in 1961. The car was originally sold in 1961 to a couple in Prince Edward Island. They sold it to a man in Pennsylvania in 1990. Currently under the care of Carl Setters of Covington, Kentucky, it has still original black paint with only minor rust at the rear of each front fender. Only 68,000 miles and all original except for the drivetrain, which is a 327 chevy V8 with 350 HP.

1928 PONTIAC 370

Submitted to us by Pete Watson of Guelph, Ontario. Originally sold from Melvin Motors, this Canadian made Pontiac, built in Oshawa, Ontario is all original.  The L-Head inline six puts out about 48 brake horsepower at 2,850 RPM. The only item that has been changed are a new set of tires. Although the paint is faded and the hood paint is very sparse, it still looks great , and is a big hit at any show or cruise nite . "It draws people like a magnet." says Pete,  "Its like they say Pontiac Built For Drivers."  The original owner is Mr. Orval Seeley of Iroquois, Ontario. Mr. Seeley bought this car new and retained ownership 'til June 10, 1996. At that time a Mr. Douglas Irvine of Brinston, Ontario was the registered owner till July 1998, at which time the car was sold to a broker, a Mr Bill Kenney of Kemptville, Ontario . It was September 1998 that Pete took ownership of the car.  As a point of interest there are the remains of the original assembly log still attached to the frame . This is a paper book with about thirty odd pages still intact. "Should be in a Canadian Museum."


Here's a great example of a Canadian made survivor Mopar, only refinished cosmetically, with a 318 V8 and only 32,000 miles. It was bought new in Ontario and stored for many years. Interior is redone and it's repainted due to storage damage.  Previous owner moved from Sarnia Ontario to Alberta and sold the car to Randy Lamble of St Albert, AB, the current owner, in January 2001.


This Mach 1 was saved by  Raynald Bélanger in Boucherville, Quebec. It was concours restored by Mustang International located in Lévis, Québec.  The restoration, which started in 1997 and completed in 2000, is all original, and is documented with Ford document and standard report.  Registered in the 1970 Mustang Mach1 Registry, the car was featured in a couple of magazines and a TV show (Auto Stop) in February 2003. It has a 351-4V engine with FMX auto trans, Medium Lime Metallic exterior color and black interior.

This Mopar is a result of the love and attention from Jaret Hiebert in Winnipeg, MB. It has a 383 Magnum with over 450 HP and only 31,000 original miles on the odometer.  Jaret noticed it sitting for 15 years in a driveway down the street from his home.  It was a drag racer from the 70's, had hole in the hood with 2 holley 600's sticking out with no air cleaners.  He purchased it 5 years ago and has fully restored it, but has kept the modified engine, put in a ford 9 inch and lots of other extras.  The car originally comes from Penner Dodge in Steinbach, MB, purchased by a mountie who raced it in the 70's. Bill Tam and his brother bought it after him and made no modifications, couldn't drive on street so they parked it and sort of forgot about it till Jaret came around and bought it.  "The car will never be finished to me."
