The Meteor Rideau is a full-size automobile that was produced by Canadian manufacturer Meteor from 1954 to 1961[1] and 1965 to 1976. 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.
