    Tex, thanks for posting. Tex had asked for photos of the inside of a Studebaker dealer, for reference, so I photocopied some color prints I had from original slides of the Filer dealership and those photocopies are what are posted. Not real vivid color, like the originals, but still, color from the '50's and '60's.

    Again, thanks for posting.

        Yes, Bill; a great collection. BP
        We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

        Ayn Rand:
        "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

        G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

            The Filers are good friends of mine, and have lived in central OH since 1979.

            The shorter, dark-haired fellow in the 2004 pics is my friend Joe Kastellec, "GTJoe" on the forum, who went with me to pick the door with the logo up, from the owner of the building (also in the one 2004 photo). The owner's name is Tony and took us out back. At that time, the Service Dept. was largely unchanged. There were six or seven overhead doors in the back--the Service Dept. was wider than the showroom part of the building--with one overhead door being tall for big trucks. One door, one service bay, for each vehicle. There was a sliding glass window leading from the old Parts Dept. to the shop, where parts requested could be passed through. The metal covers for the lifts were still in the floor, which made me think the lifts probably were too.

            Thanks again Tex, for posting these photocopies.

            I've posted this link before, but here are five, vivid color photos of the one 1956 Packard Caribbean convertible they delivered new in June '56, from the excellent "Packard Info" website. In the background is a '39 (I think) Commander coupe, which was Carl Jr.'s wife Mimi's runabout car:

            Besides the Caribbean, they delivered a '63 and a '64 Daytona convertible, and one of the two complete Super package '64 R2 Cruisers built...a black car with red cloth buckets and Powershift. Of course, they also delivered my Strato Blue '64 Daytona Hardtop..one of two new '64 Daytona Hardtops sold there, and the latter one...which I've recently sold.
