About Us

The Cold War Historic Vehicle Society

The Cold War Historic Vehicle Society, a Charitable Museum, was established to provide Canadians with access to artifacts from the period of the Cold War (1946 – 1995) in an educational fashion through the display and demonstration of its extensive collection of military vehicles.

Operating from locations in Ontario and Quebec, the Society provides vehicles and artifacts, along with knowledgeable volunteers, to a wide range of community events, and participates in other cultural activities when requested.

The Society was started in 1993 by like minded private business people who recognized a need to have working artifacts to commemorate and educate people about our collective history from this period. The Society has now grown to over a dozen vehicles of different types, representing many nations from around the world. With a full time restoration and operations staff, the Society restores to accurate operational condition diverse types of historically significant vehicles, both wheeled and tracked, ranging from light general service vehicles to tanks and armored personnel carriers.

Along with the preservation of these artifacts, the Society maintains a significant knowledge base of Cold War history, literature, and technical details of the automotive engineering employed during that era.

This information and the vehicles themselves are available to researchers as well as film, television, and theatrical productions and other community groups on a request basis.
