I was browsing Google Images and found this picture. Does anybody know anything about this dealership. I would at least like to know where it was.

Sorry Joe, it's not Morehead City NC.....................

"Morehead Motors in Aberdeen, Washington, photo taken circa 1955. They look like a successful dealership who sold Studebaker and Packard. The sign in the front window is announcing that this is their new home."

Jim-- I really hate to be 'that' guy,
but the only car I see with skirts is a '54 Land Cruiser...

They must have been relatively successful Dealers, it appears that they probably had ordered and sold a FLEET of 4 identical '55 4 Door Sedans! :cool:

And who knows, maybe the 2 Trucks were part of the package also.

I remember that Dad sold Mr. Crozer of Crozer Machine Shop in Hawthorne, CA a '55 President Coupe for himself, a '55 President State Sedan for his wife and a '55 Pickup with the new (for pickups) V-8 Engine for the Business.

Being near the ocean, some of these poor Studes may have been victims of early rust out . Of course living in a high desert area, we don't worry about that much over here on the dry side of the Cascades........hee hee.

Thanks to all for the quick response to my question. I really love the idea of the dealership having been a Packard and Studebaker dealer.
