About Stamp

The McLaughlin Car Company of Oshawa, Ontario has proven to be one of Canada's most successful manufacturers. From producing sleighs in 1867, the company was the leading carriage builder in 1907 when persuaded his father to enter the automobile manufacturing business. A deal was struck with Buick to build a car with a McLaughlin-made body and a Buick engine. "It's Better Because It's Canadian" was a slogan used to promote their cars and with impressive detailing, superior chassis construction and powerful engines, McLaughlins spelled class! In 1918 the company was sold to become part of General Motors of Canada, with the McLaughlin name continuing on the more expensive cars. In 1939 a special McLaughlin-Buick was built for the Royal Tour.
