        Sorry, I don't have a Pic. However, interestingly enough, I do have all of the remains of their Parts Dept. and all of their set of Parts Catalogs though, a few have their name and address on the inside of the cover.

          Russel G. Smith's, where I saw and sat in my first Avanti. Couldn't afford it then, can't afford it now.

            Richard,

            Would you happen to know where their 1949 and 1950 administration went? I would be interested in a copy of the invoice of my Commander.

              Sorry Kees I do not have any New Car Invoice Files from Mission Motors. I do understand that this information is sometimes available at the Studebaker National Museum in their owner files. You can ask on their Website.

                  • Looking for anyone who may have worked at the Studebaker factory store in Peoria, Ill. I believe my 1963 Super Wagonaire may have been sold out of that Stude Store.

                      • McQuaid Motor Sales Marquette, MI Info from Richard McQuaid's obituary in Niles Daily Star
                        "Upon his return from military service, Richard married Jayne V. Griffee of Niles on Sept. 20, 1947. Then he began a lifetime career in the automobile business, joining his father, William, at McQuaid Motor Sales of Marquette (a Studebaker dealership) in 1947." This dealership may have already been identified.

                        • The Vancouver branch of the Studebaker Corporation of Canada, besides being the central parts warehouse for British Columbia, also operated a dealership from the facility in the late teens and early twenties in the 1200 block of W. Georgia street. Oddly, another Studebaker dealer, Willis Kingsley Motors was less than a block away at 1190 W. Georgia.

                            • There were four dealerships in Seattle in 1964: L.E. Belcourt Co, Sonny Collins/Collins & Winquist, The Studebaker Center, and University Motors (originally a division of University Chevrolet). Also, does anybody have any additional information or photographs of Studebaker dealerships in Washington and/or Oregon? Anything will be greatly appreciated.

                              • Don't know if this one has been listed: Hoeffer motors, East peoria ,Il. a dealer from the late 40's to mid 50's I think. His M sereies truck prompted me to stop back in the mid 80's. I talked with him for a while. I ended up buying a small amount of nos parts he had laying around and he gave a couple bundles of his service tickets, which I thought where neat.
