                  • Found these photos in Down at the depot; American railroad stations from 1831 to 1920 by Edwin P. Alexander. during a research project on American railroads in a history class.

                    The caption below the photos read:
                    "PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA: NORTHSIDE
                    Across the Allegheny River from Pittsburgh's main station, on the P. Ft. W. & C. line is Northside station. The waiting room, closed since 1935 was leased by Studebaker dealer Chester A. Reed for a showroom. As the picture taken in the 1940s shows, it served this purpose well.
                    Fred McLeod.
                    Studebaker."

                    I just thought this was really neat, I like it when two of my favorite interests, railroads and Studebakers manage to blend.

                    • Davidson Motors, Mobridge, SD. Studebaker to the end. Two of my older brothers worked there and introduced our family to Studes. First was a '48 Land Cruiser, then a '51 Champ 2dr and then a '53 Champ Cpe. Bob and "Jiggs" Davidson were very fine, service oriented owners. Even the building is gone now. Cousins of the Davidson's are still huge GM dealers in Denver.

                            L.R. Brown Studebaker-Packard
                            Riverside, CA

                            John Gilliland Studebaker
                            Hemet, CA

                            My '58 President was sold by the Hemet franchise on June 16, 1958 for $3414.75 (including tax and license). There was a trade-in allowance of $2181.81 for a '56 President.

                            I have the L.R. Brown license frame on my '55.

                            W.A. Flotman Studebaker
                            Versailles, MO

                            Small correction and amplification on existing listing:

                            Frost & French in Los Angeles was a Packard agency long before taking on the Studebaker franchise when the Packard Division collapsed in '56. The dealership was founded in 1925, became an exclusive Packard franchise in 1940. I interviewed Walter Bibens in 1985 for the Packards International magazine. Walter had joined the dealership in 1930. He shared with me a lot of the old documents and memorabilia, including a telegram from the president of Studebaker Autotive Sales Corporation dated March 4, 1966: " Because of heavy and irreversible losses by being automotive division, automobile production and distribution to be permanently discontinued...." Frost & French quickly purchased every remaining new Studebaker in inventory, continuing a small but profitable business of selling brand-new '66 Studebakers well into calendar year 1968. They remained a service and parts center well into the mid-eighties. When I was a graduate student, I had my '57 Golden Hawk, later a 56J and Packard Four Hundred serviced there. A complete rebuild of the Flightomatic in the '57 cost me $187 in 1966, I was provided a clean '57 President as a loaner!

                            • One of my good friends now owns the building in Mt Jackson VA that used to be the old Heishman Garage Studebaker dealer. One of the items we found in the attic that must have been missed by Paul J's "pillaging and plundering" expeditions is attached:
                              (And no, it's not for sale...He's a Studebaker nut too!) You can't really tell but in the background of the certificate is "1956"



                              And, in Richmond Indiana, in 1938 the Packard agent was Wickett Motor Service. I own a 38 Henney-Packard hearse with a keytag from them..I'll have to get a pic and post it here.
