My 1940 Canadian Dodge

I am very fortunate to own my Dad's 1940 Canadian Dodge, which is also from Western Canada.  Most of the car is original.  My Dad restored the engine and it runs like a top...it has the original upholstery and dash paint...and headliner.  Someday when I have the spare cash, I'll have the seats recovered.  But I pretty much want to leave it original.  I love the Dodge Ram hood ornament, when I was a kid I called it the "Billy Goat".  My Dad owned a car just like this when he immigrated from Canada to the U.S. in the mid 1950's.  He would drive us kids around in a car like this.  I love the style...The two tone paint reminds me of an oxford shoe...it has alot of character.
