This dealership located in Silverdale PA was established in 1927 and existed until 1942 when the owner dies od a massive heart attack. The business continued under the direction of his 18 year old 2nd son as a repair garage as Studebaker would not give a franchise to one that young. it was however reestablished in 1963 with the same son now awarded his Studebaker franchise. It continued until the bitter end and was a dealership for other brands, Giat and GMC products into the 60's. Today it is a repair garage. On one day in Oct 2009 it was returned to its former glory as a Studebaker dealership.
