    Went to the local library & used the old city directory. Have one 'new' dealer to add & one correction/update. Peoria, Illinois also had Tidy's Motor Sales located at 900 S. Adams St.(1938 city directory) It's now an auto glass shop but still a cool old building. The correction/update I have is also in Peoria. It's Harry Tyrrell (not Henry Tyrell)Motor Co. & he had a 2nd later location at 4416 N. Prospect Ave.(1956 city dir.)That building is now a Kawasaki motorcycle dealer.

"George Berres Studebaker" (Later AMC) in Pekin, Il. just south of Peoria. (Last I heard Goerge was doing well. Must be pushing 90 yrs old now.) The dealership that my 61 Lark originally sold from was "Frank Hilker Studebaker-Packard" in Chicago Heights a far south suburd of Chicago (Yes...Frank Hilker was the guy who tried to put rumble seats back in Studebakers in 61!). My final entry...Another southern suburb of Chicago, South Holland, Illinois had Kickert Studebaker. Found some service papers from Kickert in the glove box of the Lark when I bought it. Oops, Just remembered one more. I went to Southern Il. University in Carbondale, Il. and they had "Smith Studebaker" (later Dodge) on the west end of town.
    Had Tyrell, but spelled wrong, had Kickert also, but not Hilker or Smith...... ( or Myers) many thanks//

    Thought of another one in Central Illinois. "Myers Studebaker" was on the south side of the town square in Washington, Illinois (near Peoria)until at least 63. I'm aware of a RUSTY 63 Lark running aruond that you can still read the dealer sticker on the trunk!

    The "Studebaker Building" in Lakeland FL from our friend Tom Shaw, now Bay Street Bistro.

    (Sorry the image isn't any bigger, but it says Studebaker Building on the side wall, with a caricature of a 1940 Champion(?)



    Anyone know any more about it?

    EDIT: Tom Shaw just located and forwarded this information. The Studebaker depicted looks like a combination of 1941 and 1942 Champions. BP

    Studebaker dealers in Toronto

    Feb. 10, 2012

    This is a reply to the gentleman who inquired about Studebaker dealerships in Toronto. I, too, am from Toronto, although I now live in Studebaker City (Hamilton). Anyhow, I recall a Studebaker dealer on the east side of Mount Pleasant Road, between Merton and Balliol Streets, in the early 1960s (I attended high school just up the road, at Northern Secondary). I don't recall the name of the dealership; I assume it was there until 1966; it later became a Jaguar dealership, Coventry Motors, and finished up circa 2000 as a Volkswagen outlet for Downtown Fine Cars.

    Hope this helps.

    Starlight....

    Many thanks for the info, however "Randy" is no longer with us. He started the thread a number of years ago ( with much bigger ideas) and never continued with it. Whatever Stude dealers he had were gleaned off and now the listing is over 5 times the size it started with.
    Look it over here...

    Randy..... I found a copy of an order for my 1964 Commander when I emptied the glove box of this very car that I had bought from a guy that llived in South Lake Tahoe, California......Best I can tell the dealership sold Studebakers only, at least according to the invoice I have, it says "Studebaker Sales and Service"......Name was......Mother Lode Motors, 55 West Stockton Road.....Sonora, California......This was in 1964, and was bought by a woman........Keep on Studebakering
