  • Fort Benton, Montana dealership

    Does anyone else have a vehicle purchased new from the Bybee Machinery Co (Authorized Studebaker dealer) in Ft Benton Mt? Ft Benton had a population of just over 2000 in 1955 and still does today. Being in a rural area they probably sold more trucks than cars. I have no idea how what the duration of the dealership was. An acquaintance who grew up in that general area ('55-65 time frame) remembers Bybee Machinery, but not that they were a Studebaker dealer. There is still a machinery dealer in the same place under a different name.
    American iron, real old school
    With two tone paint, it sure is cool

    Its got 8 cylinders and uses them all
    With an overdrive that just won't stall

    With a 4 barrel carb and dual exhausts
    With 4.23 gears it can really get lost

    Its got safety belts and I ain't scared
    The brakes are good and the tires are fair.

    Tried to sell her, but got no taker
    I"ll just keep driving my Studebaker
