Modernist automobile showroom #1

Perhaps it was merely a happy accident that the dazzling roofline matches the batwing fins of those 1959 Chevrolets displayed inside. Detroit's Dexter Chevrolet still exists, but judging from the photos on their website, the original showroom has either been drastically remodeled or torn down. From the book Stores and Shopping Centers, 1962, published by Architectural Record.
