      Boy did they get that story messed up or what? The Caption on the 1950 Photo says it was in the '60's! And then there is THIS misleading info:

      This year, John said the dealership also was honored as one of the oldest dealerships in the U.S. to sell Mercedes-Benz. In addition, Coppus Motors was honored at the Mercedes-Benz Convention June 7 in Miami, Florida. John received the trophy for being one of six remaining dealers who were awarded the Mercedes-Benz franchise in 1957, reaching its 60th year of selling Mercedes-Benz. Before the Mercedes-Benz Corp. was established, buyers could only go through a distributor to purchase vehicles.

      How about when Mercedes Benz United States Sales Division of Studebaker Corp. was the sole Sales, Service and Parts supplier for MB Cars?

        Wouldn't that be the distributor referenced in your highlight?
        If so, it's not misleading. They just didn't include a detail most of the reading public would not care about.
