  • Sorry if it's been already listed, but here's my input:
    Wm. J. Sweeney and Sons, Daly City CA.
    They sold the very first Packard Hawk.
    My Mom and Dad purchased a 54 Conestoga, 56 Parkview and a 63 Champ.
    The building is still standing, and is currently a used car lot. The building, and most of the surrounding structures, is slated for demolition within the next few years

          • Randy,
            Another Studebaker dealer for you was Cotten Motor Co. in Petersburg, Virginia.

            • CAPITAL MOTOR SALES WAS IN KINGSTON ONTARIO FROM 1959 TO 1966. THE DEALER BEFORE THEM WAS SEAWAY MOTOR SALES AND BEFORE THAT WAS CONSOLIDATED MOTORS.

              VADER'S GARAGE WAS IN BELLEVILLE ONTARIO IN THE 60'S

              • Another dealer comes to mind...
                Paul Camplese & Son
                2901 Walnut St.
                Penbrook, PA (near Harrisburg).

                We visited the now vacant dealership a few years ago, and there were still several Studebakers on the property. The office still had a picture of Mr. Camplese, a print of the South Bend factory, and a Service Award hanging on the wall. In the garage area were a couple more Studebakers and some assorted Studebaker parts. I found this dealership of particular interest since my Daytona was delivered there in September of '63.

                  • Palmyra Auto Service was the Studebaker dealership in Palmyra, Pa. Still in business as a used car lot and repair shop. It is still owned by the same Family, and they still work on Studebakers.

                      • I have been trying to get some History on my 53. I have finally found some dealer information. Hall Motors, North Race St. Glasgow Kentucky. The owner was Stanley Hall. No pictures -YET. I have no street address, but the information I have says it was located a long block off Glasgow square in the now historical district. Can ayone help with the location or name. Mr Stanley was later the property valuation administrator in Barren co. Ky. Tex in Alabama- 53 commander starlight.

                        • Tex Grier: You've accumulated enough information that a call to the Glascow KY Public Library ought to yield the dealership's address. Surely they'd have a Glascow phone directory from that year and could look it up for you. BP
                          We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                          • I don't know if this has been mentioned earlier or not, but I found this web site just googling around. It is for what was Gene's Auto Service in 1945. A Studebaker dealer in Fairbanks, Alaska.

                              • Here are a few more. I don't think they have all been mentioned:

                                Norman P. Druck Motor Company -- 1601 Haddon Ave, Camden, New Jersey
                                http://www.dvrbs.com/camden-cars/Car...Druck-Ad-2.jpg

                                Henry J. Vollmer Packard -- Vollmer Packard was located at 1139 Atlantic Avenue. Established by Henry Vollmer in 1923, the dealership in the mid 1940s advertised new Packards for sale in the sports section of the Camden Courier-Post. Vollmer Packard was still in business on Atlantic Avenue in the early 1950s. This building is also still standing, and is utilized by an engineering firm. I also saw this address for that dealer 1621 Haddon, Camden, New Jersey
