Studebaker owned P-A from 1928 until 1935.

edit: I stand corrected. Thanks, Richard.:)

Thanks, I didn’t realize that!

I found this listed in R.L. Polk’s 1929 South Bend City Directory under "DEALERS" and thought it was a strange mix, but now it all makes perfect sense!!!

As I was looking at the pics of that car, it was VERY hard for me to see the reality of the pic instead of the car in its' brand new glory. What a beautiful car!! I would love to have something like that and be able to take it apart piece-by-piece and restore it. Such dreams.....
