Palmyra auto sales used to be a Studebaker dealer. Still owned by the same family. they still work on Studebakers. They are located on the south side of main street.

I live in the Ephrata area which is in Lancaster County. Witmer's Automotive is a general garage but have been working on Studebakers forever. If you drive over to their shop, there are always Studes sitting out for repair and he has many photos, old Stude collectables, etc in the office there. Great mechanics and that's my Stude's garage.

Nate. Do you have an address or phone number for Witmers? I'm in Lebanon Pa and someone was telling me about them. I would like to check them out. I would like to get some work done on my Hawk.

Jeff,
I am actually at Penn State here in State College right now, but I did a search for Witmer's Automotive in Akron, PA and found the right address. I think its the correct one. The address is:
503 North Farmersville Road
Ephrata, PA 17522

And the phone number is 717 859 1078.

They are great guys to work with and excellent mechanics. I fully trust them with our Studebakers and they do a great job. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask.

Sincerely,
Nate

Another Penn Stater with a Studebaker...that's awesome. We will definately have to meet and talk Studebakers and show some pictures of the cars. Yup, Im here at University Park. This is my first semester here and my first semester as a Penn Stater. I transferred from Drexel University to PSU for the Animal Bioscience Program in the College of Ag. I plan on being a Vet for Large Animals. I live in Lancaster County. It's about a 2 hour drive to Penn State straight up 322. Anyhow, do you know where you'll be staying? I'm trying to dorm here in North Halls but have not found a roommate yet. This semester's roommate is a bad experience. Anyhow, keep in touch.
