Approximately every two years, the Thunder Bay Museum raffles off a classic car with proceeds going directly towards helping with the operation of the museum. The Thunder Bay Museum has always purchased its raffle cars, and has not acquired any via donation. However, should someone wish to explore the possibility of donating a car for a future raffle, please contact the Museum’s Director/Curator.

2018 CLASSIC CAR RAFFLE — NOW SOLD OUT. And the winner of the 1969 Camaro is Jane Delski of Thunder Bay, Ontario. Ticket #00519.

We thank all who bought tickets. Check back for information about our next raffle car, a 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T.

  • PRIZE: 1969 Camaro RS

This 1969 Camaro coupe has been nicely restored. The original engine is gone but a GM 355 cid crate engine takes its place with lots of performance parts. However, it’s still a very driveable car. It’s been given the full SS and Rally Sport treatment and, indeed, it could have been an original SS car but without the original engine and X code, we can’t be sure. The interior has also been restored with new seats (houndstooth, of course), dash and console. It has updated Sony sound system. Professionally appraised at $42,000, it’s been described as “not a show winner but very presentable and very clean.”

Tickets are no longer available!
