Toronto, Ontario – A jet used by the Snowbirds in its aerobatic performances will be up for grabs alongside a wide variety of classic cars and auto memorabilia in the Classic Car Auction of Toronto on April 8 to 10, 2011.
The Canadair CL-41, which will not be physically at the event, was built in the mid-1960s and designated the CT-114 Tutor by the Royal Canadian Air Force, used as their primary jet trainer. It became a member of the Snowbirds Demonstration Team in 1971 and retains its original colours, cockpit instruments, controls and ejection seats. It will be sold with an extensive collection of documentation, including log books and maintenance and service records.
The show, held indoors at Mississauga’s International Centre, will also feature several other vehicles with Canadian history, including an original 1966 Shelby GT30 that spend its life in Windsor, Ontario since new, a rare 1956 Meteor Rideau Convertible built in Oakville, Ontario, and a 1915 Ford Model T that was produced in Walkerville, Ontario.
