Boler

Does anyone own a 1968 Boler made in Winnipeg? If so do you have the original build sheet that was on your inside cabinet door, with the info as to the address where it was built? Or even the original Serial Number Tag may show the info we are looking for.

We are in the early planning of the 50th Anniversary of the Boler for the summer of 2018.

The second factory location at 770 Dufferin in Winnipeg was easily found, but we are looking for the Higgins address that was used only for 1 year.

I believe the Higgins address was: 466 Higgins Ave.




This link gives some interesting info on the Boler beginnings:

Hi, That is so funny that you pointed me to a article that is posted on the website of the guy I am working with for the 50th Anniversary of the Boler. I will let Ian know that he had the info already. LOL

See what happens when you get old, your memory goes all to S*it LOL.
Guess we can stop looking now ... and THANK YOU to Tom McMahon who actually found this information.

Looking at Google street view 466 Higgins Ave is a vacant lot

It is the side of the Salter Street Bridge. So nothing to see on the tour there LOL, but the building at 770 Higgins is still there.

Am looking forward to seeing your completed "anniversary" edition of the original flatly. They are truly unique.

We are not building a new Boler. We are planning a Rally for everyone with a Fiberglass camper to come to Winnipeg in 2018.

I will post details soon, but as Risk mentioned we are in the process of planning a homecoming caravan from across the country to Winnipeg in 2018 to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the introduction of the Boler. This should be a spectacular event.
