Making the 1967 Cars in Windsor, Ontario

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.
