Do You own a car built by Durant? too many
Nice find! This looks like a great candidate for restoration in that it looks intact and you don't have to search for what must be impossible to find parts. Is this one of the last Frontenacs? Ross Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow US citizens (Canada already had thanksgiving?)

Do You own a car built by Durant? 1930 6-14
Yes its a 1933 C-600 Frontenac of 283 made, based on the Continental Flyer. Dominion Motors production stopped Dec 1933 of all vehicles Frontenac / Rugby.
Riverdale Tire & Auto Exchange bought up the entire stock from Dominion of Rugby Trucks and C-400 / C-600 Frontenac's and had two ad's selling them, Jan 5 and Mar 15 1934. Interesting to note the ads say C-400's radio equipped and it converts to a sleeper in 3 min. Continental Beacon's didn't have glove boxes or radio's the C-400 Frontenac's did.
Only Dominion carried on, Continental was already out of the picture, and the majority of the plant was being operated by Reo on it's own.
Dominion Motors officially ended June 23 1944 when the last section of their factory and the remaining lands was sold to Frigidaire without enough funds left to pay shareholders. They also gave up their Charter as Dominion Motors Limited.
