    Thanks for the photo. It will be added to the listing. The only thing I had prior was this

    Did you ever contact the Studebaker museum?
    They may have a complete dealer listing
    This is from a 1916 newspaper in Richmond VA.

    I have well over 300 dealer photos mostly 8x10 glossy and have often thought of doing a book on the topic but am low on motivation! No money to be made and lots of hours involved.

    That would be so neat!
    I'm pretty sure Bob Johnstone has added every photo that's been made available to him to the dealership list he has noted on his website; and these are tagged as photos if you scroll through the list. If anyone has additional heritage information or photos, Bob's enthusiasm knows no bounds.
    Not quite what you were asking for but, perhaps a seminal thought.

    This picture was hanging up with some others in the back of a retirement home in South Holland , IL where my parents were staying for about a month.
    It's Kickert Auto Sales when they were a Willys Knight dealer. Later they were Packard, then Studebaker, and then used cars.
    Sorry it's not very good quality. They probably got it from the historical society in town.

    You are right, Mike--it's Milwaukee. I believe his production order said "Milwaukee, Wisc--Hundt" on it. You had sent me that one pic with a dark-colored Champion convertible in it and I wondered if that could've been my brother-in-law's car.

    My brother-in-law, Harley Cook of Greenville, PA, owns a yellow '49 Champion convertible that was sold new at Hundt Motors of Brookfield, WI. The car was originally brown. I corresponded some with Mike a few years back.

    Here is the photo that Mike Hundt of Brookfield, Wisc sent recently of his fathers dealership in Milwaukee, Wisc. in c1947. In my collection I located an envelope dated 1963 that was sent to Studebaker from the dealership. It shows the street address at 2797 So. Kinnickinnic Ave. I will let Mike fill in any other information he deems appropriate. The dealership was also mentioned on this forum back in 2010 by Frank Drumheller. http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.c...highlight=Hund

    The Studebaker dealer in Robinson, Illinois was Guy Miller's Garage.
    The location was at the corner of Lincoln and Franklin from 1949 thru 1956

    The photo below was just forwarded from Randy Rundle, Proprietor of Fifth Avenue Garage / Antique Auto Parts in Clay Center, Kansas. Randy is, of course, a regular Turning Wheels advertiser and has many items to help us maintain our Studebakers.

    To save repeating the whole story of this dealership, here is the text Randy sent along with the photo. Thanks, Randy:

    As promised [in St. Louis],
    As for the Pace Car...The story goes that Studebaker brought the Pace Car around to all the dealerships and took a picture out front. Then, the dealership was supposed to buy copies to give away. Bill had little money so he never bought any, but they let him keep the picture.




    Do you know anything about the car did it make it to Pikes Peak and was it uses as a Pace Car?


    By the way the building still stands and is an NAPA Auto Parts store. RR



    I don't know any more about that Pikes Peak "Pace Car," but it seems to me that I've seen it discussed here. If anyone can fill some blanks, please post to this thread and I'll call Randy's attention to it.

    Thanks. BP
