See a 1919 Gray Dort in exceptional condition. Gray-Dort Motors was a Canadian automobile manufacturer in Chatham from 1915-1925. The 1919 Gray Dort Model 11 Touring on exhibit at the Chatham-Kent museum is one of the few remaining Chatham-manufactured vehicles. The Chatham-Kent Museum houses a wonderful exhibition that showcases our community’s ties to the automotive industry in Canada.
