    • When I bought my '63 Cruiser at auction last month I also bought a stack of Stude literature and some old newspaper clippings. One full newspaper page is an ad for Packer Motor Company in Glendale CA. The paper is a June 9th 1950 issue.
      The ad crows about Packer offering Studebakers & service for one third of a century. There's a photo of the senior Mr. Packer taking delivery of 17 new 1917 Studebakers in 1917.
      While it says it's Packer Motor Co., the biggest print in the ad says "PACKER'S CORNERS 1620-1623 So. Brand 34,000 sq. ft of sales and service facility."
      Any of you SoCal sorts know of this place?

      1957 Transtar 1/2ton
      1960 Larkvertible V8
      1958 Provincial wagon
      1953 Commander coupe
      1957 President two door

      No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

          • I guess I should mention(hope no one else has) Raines Motor Sales in Grundy VA..
            I do not know much about it, but my 59 Scotsman 4x4 was sent to Grundy, and I cannot imagine that small of a town having more than 1 dealer

                • YES! Keep doing it for as long as you're willing. I read every single one. Of course I have my own personal interest, but I still like reading all the names and locations. And maybe someday, someone else or myself, will find the one I am looking for. I don't look for any cuz no one finds any within a couple hundred miles of me. And I found the one where I live and posted about it a while back. Worked in that building without knowing its' history, bummer.

                  • I seem to recall some Dealers listed on an old Australian ad. When I get the time I'll type them in. I think our "webmaster" got a bigger job than he thought when he started this.

                    • Has anyone asked Richard Quinn about Dealers? He seems to have lots of information about things like that.

                      Probably photos too.

                            • When I was in Detroit last year for Thanksgiving, I hit the library and searched thru the older phone books for dealers. I've already added the Studebaker dealers, so these are the Packard dealers. Some of these must have been selling Studebakers before the takeover. There are two in Dearborn that are almost next to each other. Some of these are already on Randy's list. For those in the Detroit area, I have the addresses...
