The Meteor Rideau was a full-size automobile from the Canada-only Meteor brand of the Ford Motor Company sold from 1954–61 and 1965-76. It was named for the Rideau River, a river in Eastern Ontario, the province where the car was built. From 1957, the line included both the Rideau series and the higher-trim Rideau 500. The Rideau began as the top-trim level of the Meteor line, but beginning with the 1965 models, it was the lowest trim series.
