The car was purchased from the original family in Alberta with 37,256 miles on the clock. The Grandfather was the original purchaser from Turnbull motors and subsequently passed the car down the family until it was purchased over the internet (technology is great) and delived to Ottawa. The car was repainted original colour with base clear coat (gotta get that shine). The basic mechanicals that were worn out were replaced with all OEM parts and now it just loves to be driven. Viva La 4 Door!

Great looking car. I've got one with only 60860 miles on it. Was stored 18 years. It's the slant six 225.
Do you or anyone out there know how to change out the ignition lock cylinder in the steering column? It should be a simple job, but...it's not. I pulled the steering wheel, there are absolutely no holes in the area where the pin in the cylinder should be. I followed the instructions that came with the new ignition cylinder, but, it don't work. Seems I'm supposed to take out the screws on the right side and just loosen the one on the left and the front of the steering column will spin to where there are holes. Guess what, it don't spin.  I've even tried to drill a couple holes to locate the pin so I can push it and pull the cylinder out.  No luck.  Any suggestions?

I THINK YOUR CAR LOOKS GREAT. I GOT ONE JUST LIKE HERE IN SOUTH DAKOTA. ITS THE SAME COLOR AND ITS A BROUGHAM TOO, BUT YOURS IN ALOT BETTER SHAPE BODY WISE. MINE HAS RUST HOLES IN THE LOWER REAR PANELS FROM BEING BURIED IN A SNOW BANK FOR 4 MONTHS. WHEN I FIRST GOT IN IT HAD ABOUT 38,748 ORIGINAL MILES ON IT, NOW 42,480 AND I HAD IT ALMOST 3 YEARS. I ALSO KNOW THAT IT WAS BUILT IN WINDSOR ONTARIO AND THAT ONLY JUST OVER 2,500 WERE BUILT OF THE 4 DOOR AND ONLY 13,000+ OF THE TWO DOOR. SO WHAT YOU AND I GOT IS VERY RARE. I WAS WONDERING IF THERES ANY COMPANY THAT MAKES PATCH PANELS FOR CARS LIKE THIS, IF ANYONE KNOWS MY EMAIL IS
