  • Stillwater, OK Stude Dealer

    Had a FB friend send me this pic, asking if I remembered anything about the dealership. His grandfather was Frank Madole, one of the principles in the dealership. Anybody know anything about this dealership? Click image for larger version

      That Mercury - Studebaker combination is different. What exists at that address now?

        Thanks, Robert! That link is interesting, in that it called up a dealership I had mentioned a week or so ago.

        There have been several Studebaker dealers in Stillwater since 1911, that's for sure!

        For the sake of a time reference regarding the dealership in the original post, I moved to Stillwater at the tender age of 11 in 1958. At about the same time, the phone company instituted the dial system, so the FR2 prefix came into being about that time. So the dealership in question would have been active from that time frame forward.

          Good question, Gary, thanks for asking! It is currently an independent appliance store, formally a Sears outlet. I still don't remember it being a car dealership, but the building would certainly have served that purpose well. Click image for larger version

            Probably only about 1958 to 1962 or early 1963 for the form shown. The address would have a Zip Code after that (1963). Of course the dealership could have existed outside those time limits (early as 1939 and late as 1966).

              The form would be earliest March, 1960, with the 'Comet' logo on it.

                Good point. I knew that there were 1960 model Comets, but I didn't know that they came out that late. They could have been 1961 models.
