I was looking at a file that my dad had kept of all the new cars he had purchased from 1948 to 1961. He purchased a new 1948 Commander Starlight from Mahood. I remember at the time he had his name in with many dealers just to get a car.

    My father was a mechanic for Cal Mahood's in Neligh NE. So was my Uncle. They move to La Grande OR in 1947, where they were mechanics at the M.J.Goss Studebaker Garage. Cal Mahood had a fire in his garage in 1945 or 1946. It burned a lot of the inside of the garage, but Cal rebuilt it. He was a fine man.

    In Waynesburg, Pa. the Studebaker Dealer was Art Post Waynesburg Motor Co. His house is beside my house in fact I own it. I found yard sticks in the garage plus license plate frames. The 39 Studebaker I own came from his dealership. We were good friends. He is gone now. Click image for larger version

    In the 1960 ad, some of the dealers were GM dealers that were temporarily selling Studebakers when the times were good. Constantin in East Liberty (Pittsburgh) was a Pontiac dealer for many years, McKean was Oldsmobile, Nethling was a Chevy Dealer and Bouchat had Buick and Olds, and maybe other GM.

    Hi Bill. Yes, I was aware of Boarts. I never saw their dealership, but I used to see their ads in the Butler Eagle newspaper back in "the day". I recall an ad they ran in the paper after the 1963 move to Canada stating that Studebaker owners need not worry, that they would still be there to service Studebaker cars. (Maybe some people already thought it was the end of the line for Studebaker when they moved production to Canada?) I don't know much of anything about the A.R. Boarts dealership. Zellsmann was in the heart of downtown Butler but Boarts was a little further out. Still, I wouldn't doubt that Mr. Zellsmann was less than thrilled that there was another Studebaker dealer so close to his place.

    Actually, Zellsmann's went on a lot longer than Boarts did. Zellsmann sold Studebakers until the end in '66, then he sold Datsun/Nissan until the early 1980s.

    Hey blue15G, do you recognize the name "A.R. Boarts" on Rt. 422 in Butler as a Stude dealer in '64? I've heard of Zellsmann, but was surprised to see a second Butler dealer for '64's.

    Per post #1179, here is a photo of Montgomery Motors in Altoona, PA in 1951. I recently met Bob Montgomery who worked there as a youth. They bought the franchise from Cherry Motors and sold the dealership in 1953, then went on to operate several import franchises in the Altoona area.Click image for larger version

    I recently met Bob Montgomery, whose family owned Montgomery Studebaker in Altoona, Pa for a short period of time (around 1950-53). They sold the dealership to Cherry Motor Company by the '54 model year. Cherry is already listed in Altoona in Bob Johnstone's website. Cherry also had a dealership in Tyrone, PA.
    Bob Montgomery believes he has a photo somewhere. If he locates and shares it with me I will forward it to Bob J.
