    I seem to remember the original owner of that site was going to close it because of the costs involved. But Bob Johnston began hosting it here: http://www.studebaker-info.org/Dealers/page1.html

    It's probably because www.automotivehistoryonline.com is not a registered domain name on the Internet.
    GoDaddy is asking you if you want to buy the name and set it up.
    Double check your address...

    My Grandfather sold Studebakers for a year or two in Wichita in the late 50's, Ted Shidler Motor Co. He had been a Mercedes Benz dealer for several years prior and at one point MB and SP were affiliated. As I recall, he sold a few Larks and maybe a Hawk or two. He retired in 1960 and sold the property to Rawley (SP?) VW. I believe the building is still there at 520 West Douglas, close to the original NUWay hamburger joint.

    In the summer when school was out I worked there prepping new cars.....installing hubcaps, washing etc.

    Crown Heights office space

    A new office building for small companies will be opening in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Leasing at 1000 Dean St., a former Studebaker service station turned 140,000-square-foot commercial building, began in July, according to The Wall Street Journal. Rents for the small space are in the low-to-mid $20 per square foot.
    A food incubator and a beer hall featuring vendors from the popular Brooklyn Flea and Smorgasburg food market, will occupy the building, which is developed by Jonathan Butler, a well-known New York real estate blogger, in partnership with developer BFC Partners and the Goldman Sachs Urban Investment Group. To attract small, local entrepreneurs, the landlords carved the office building up into 1,000-square-foot spaces.




    Compact spaces at 1000 Dean St. in Brooklyn, above, are being aimed at entrepreneurs and small-firm owners.

    Just some info for anyone who might recall Gardner/Publix Studebaker in Kendallville, IN. Sallie Gardner and Bill Soboslay were classmates of mine at KHS. Bill and Sally married and as I have been gone for many years I don't know the transition after Studebaker stopped production. At some point the entire complex including a beverage distributorship, motel and restaurant was leveled and it became the site of a large supermarket. Kenneth Gardner, the founder, was a creative businessman. His daughter, Sallie Gardner Soboslay, recently passed away and husband, Bill, died a few years ago.

    Keenan Motors in Philadelphia. Looks like a Mercedes dealer also.

    Yes, They did sell Mercedes also. Still do. After the close of Studebaker they offered the Mercedes line exclusively and then added Rolls Royce to the lineup. My wife's neighbor Joanne married Marty, the owner. The dealership moved to the "mainline" a ritzy suburb of Philadelphia and they are still in business but now located at 4311 West Swamp Road, Doylestown, Pa. 18902 about a half hour ride north of the city.

    Not sure if it was Culver-Davis or Davis-Culver Studebaker in Galesburg, Illinois, but, here's how it looks today. If you look close at the faded paint you can still see the old signage. Click image for larger version

    C.W. Roberts.
    Collingsworth County, Texas




    The two men posing in front of the garage are identified as Thad R. Roberts and Harry L. Creed. We invite you to venture a guess about the year and model of the two circa 1915-1917 touring cars in the photo, which appear to be new. If you would like to learn a bit about the Red Sentry The University of North Texas Libraries. Many more photos along with more information can be found on the Studebaker here on The Old Motor.

    Here is a link to a short story about one of the West Coast Giants back in the day, Frost & French on S. Western Ave. in Los Angeles:

    We used to get parts and expert advice from them back in the 60s. I believe Studebakers West now owns their remaining inventory.
