Originally built in 1928, the Windsor Car Assembly Plant (WCAP) — later just WAP — once made a full line of cars for Canadian sale.
After the Trade Pact, the plant narrowed its focus to just a few models; for the 1967 model year, that would be the Dodge and Plymouth intermediate and full-size cars (but not Darts and Valiants — not yet). These photos were taken by Chrysler Canada’s Lawrence Monkhouse.
“The lead solder to the roof joints.”
The lack of protecting gear is in stark contrast to today.
Windsor is currently the sole maker of Chrysler Pacifica and Dodge Grand Caravan minivans.
