In 1961, Ford issued a 16-page brochure to promote the four cars in the Meteor line – the Niagara, the Rideau, the Rideau 500 and the Montcalm. This is the cover from the brochure and features the two-door model of the Montcalm.

The page, from the 1961 Meteor promotional brochure, shows what was considered then to be a typical Canadian family – heterosexual, Caucasian and with two children. The family is admiring the convertible model of the 1961 Montcalm.

Comfort and Durability

A page from the 1961 Meteor promotional brochure highlights the comfort and style offered by the new line of Meteors. The new line offered 12 models, 16 basic colours, 3 engine types, and 4 different transmissions! Clearly, this was a car in demand by Canadians.

Notice that the brochure also refers to the durability of the car and its detailing – a particularly important feature given the extremes of Prairie summers and Laurentian winters!
