About Stamp

While Ford has become a household name, other early Canadian manufacturers made equally important contributions but did not survive. From 1916 to 1924, Gray-Dort Motors of Chatham, Ontario produced 26,000 mid-priced and luxury cars. After several successful years of supplying for other manufacturers, in 1915 the Grays decided to enter the business themselves and signed an agreement with the Dort Motor and Car Company of Flint, Michigan, to build the American car in Canada. At the outset, the Canadian factory merely assembled Dorts and attached a Gray-Dort nameplate. Soon, however, Canadian content had increased to 60% and the cars had a solid reputation and offered good quality at a competitive price. Gray-Dort went out of production after the American parent company folded in 1923.
