Has anyone ever seen a production order with the destination of Rock Rapids Iowa or does anyone have a Studebaker from that small NW Iowa town?

It has been interesting reading about Studebakers near my hometown. In the late 60's my brother and I were a parts only Studebaker dealer in Luverne, MN bout 25 miles away from Rock Rapids. I bought parts from discarded Stude's in a gravel pit just outside of Rock Rapids but I never knew of any the Van Anne dealership - when did it close? Thone Implement was a large dealership for the area but a poor business practices and a huge fire closed that dealship in 56. Used to be a fellow from Rock Rapids that had a Golden Hawk that was quite the car but he moved to CA - heard he traded the Hawk on a Shelby Mustang.
