Just thought I would post a few pictures of the 1959 Cardinal that is in the Gasoline Alley museum that is part of Heritage Park in Calgary. It is part of a collection of about 60 vintage cars and trucks, over 120 vintage gas pumps and over 400 signs and gas pump globes that range from 1905 to 1959.
The trailer is part of a permanent display. It is kind of fun to see all of the period accessories that are in the trailer. I suspect that when it was being restored that the idea was to illustrate what trailer camping in the 50's could look like. The collection in Gasoline Alley is a very wide range of cars and trucks,most pre WW2. 90% of the collection was all donated to the museum by one local businessman. All of the pumps,all of the signs and about 50 of the 60 vehicles. Also most of the vehicles were in running condition when they were donated. They no longer are running and are part of a permanent display. They range from an unrestored 1905 Cadillac survivor to a 1930 Auburn sedan and many very rare commercial trucks. There are 2 trucks in the collection that are the only known restored ones in the world! A 1928 Auburn pickup and a 3 ton 1912 Benz truck. Most of the vehicles are rare examples of manufacturers that no longer exist and as such may be one of a small handful of that model that still exist. If you ever visit Calgary,I highly recommend to visit Gasoline Alley and Heritage Park. If you have any interest in history or vintage vehicles they are well worth spending a day visiting.
