Cars for Sale

1917 Cadillac Model 55 Phaeton 

This car has an almost unbelievable story to tell. It was purchased new in Cayuga, Ontario and that owner kept the car until 1951, sold it almost next door to a family in Caledonia, Ontario, and that family had the car until I acquired it. We have all the names and a build sheet from Cadillac. It has its original owners manual in the LF door, the original Cadillac script jack, its roll up tool kit, the hubcap wrench, wheel wrench and crank are still with the car. It has just over 20,000 actual miles.  It was stored away in a container in 1959. It has had one paint job and the roof replaced in its 100 year lifetime. The old V8 started right up. The car has its original dual exhaust system and the original selling dealer's (Hyslop Bros. Toronto) dealer tag still on the car. We have local Mennonites replace the leather in the two bottom seat cushions, perfectly matching the original leather seat backs which are in remarkable original condition. Besides all this local history, these Cadillacs have their own war time story to tell as they were the favourite car of all the allies. WWI was basically being fought with horses and mules, and they wanted reconnaissance vehicles, ambulances, and staff cars. After testing all the vehicles makes of this period, Cadillac was their outstanding choice.

1954 Mercury M100 Custom Cab 1/2 Ton Pickup (SOLD)

This rare Canadian-only Mercury pick up has been the recipient of a frame-off Show-quality restoration. The Mercury moniker is found only on Canadian-built pick up trucks from 1946 thru 1968. Ford of Canada built these examples in Oakville Ontario for Canadian dealer delivery only. For the most part, the Mercury truck was similar to the Ford F-series trucks but was trimmed in Mercury M-series badging. Many of the Mercury models saw further trim and badging than its Ford cousin. This makes the Mercury truck a sought-after oddity by both Canadian and US collectors.

This has a powerful Thunderbird V8 engine mated to a 3 speed standard transmission. Custom radio, spotlamp, dual mirrors, and full wheelcovers round out the options. The coral paint and patterned Buckskin interior combination is stunning.

Here is the story on this car as told tome by Chris, the owner of Sarasota Collector Cars:
The car was purchased new by Murry Wilson, father of the Beach Boys. The car was used by Brian and his brothers in on of their films as well. I have no proof of these statements at this time, but they all make sense as the car was put in a California museum in 1971 and sat there for over 30 years on display. 
Eventually that museum was closed and the car was purchased by Grants Classic Car Museum in Loch Haven, Pennsylvania. It remained on display there until 2017, when they auctioned off all their vehicles in an invitation-only event.
Sarasota Collector Cars of Sarasota, Florida purchased the car, and I bought it from them and brought it to Canada in April of 2018.
