Canadian Vehicles (1946-Present) at the Canadian Automotive Museum

After the Second World War cars produced in Canada remained distinctively different than their American counterparts. The 1965 Autopact removed tariffs and allowed vehicles to cross between the United States and Canada, ultimately signalling the end to unique Canadian models. Since the 1960s several unique Canadian car concepts have been attempted, but none again successfully mass-produced.
