Google maps shows this building as a vacant lot now.
I love that first picture. What a line-up. There appears to be at least 11 TT's, all with what look like dump beds. I wonder what the story was with them. I would think it's unlikely they would make up so many trucks unless they had an order for them, from say the highway department or some large contracting firm. Or, could those beds have been for grain?
The building does still exist.
WOW! You can still see the faint remnants of the sign painted on the wall shown in the photos Jay posted above.
My neighbors across the street from where I live were from Hudson, Iowa. My dad and I bought the '50 Packard they had that was bought new by the woman's father from Keefer Motors in Marshalltown.
No mention of the Great American Dump Truck Race ? A big deal there on the Iowa Salt Flats back in the day.
The picture I posted lost a lot of its clarity when converting to a smaller jpeg file. You can really read it well on the google streetview.
The car looks like a 17-18
The body must have blown off when it hit 88mph trying to go back to 1913.
Did Ford have a standard building design for his dealers?
That building looks exactly like the Ford dealership that is in Butler PA where I grew up. (OK got older because I never grew up) The dealer in Butler was founded in 1918 I believe. The sad thing is that in the late '60's the owner had the entire buildings exterior covered in a blue and white steel paneling.
