RealRides of WNY - 1956 Meteor Rideau

When I arrived at the final car show of the season last month in Grimsby, Ontario, I almost missed seeing this 1956 Meteor Rideau Club Sedan. A few minutes after my arrival I saw it making its way towards the exit, and I literally ran though three rows of cars to get a photo or two. Luckily the owner got delayed in line trying to leave the parking lot. (Do you think he saw me coming? Lol…) The Ford-based Meteor was sold at Canadian Mercury-Lincoln dealers as a lower-cost alternative to it’s marquis brands, often in areas in which there wasn’t a Ford dealership. Similarly, Ford dealers offered a higher-priced car called Monarch, which was based on the Mercury.
