Try to contact the Ontario Regiment Museum in Oshawa, Ontario. They are quite active in military vehicle restoration.

905-728-6199 (their website doesn't seem to be working)

An intersting quote from the 2nd link:

By June 1944, all Allied vehicles going into Northwest Europe were to have the five pointed American star painted on them instead. These stars sometimes had a circle, either broken or unbroken, painted around them as well. Canadian units often painted the star on crooked in order to differentiate themselves from American units.

When we trained with with 8th Canadian Hussars over in Germany, there were no markings that would make their vehicles look any different than their German counterparts....except a small Canadian Flag here an there..
