Like Packard, I was only able to find three verifiable existing dealership buildings, though the Packard dealership in Santa Monica (see previous post) had begun selling Studebakers as well by this time.

If anyone has photos of the car show at the Pan-Pacific this year, please send them to me and I'll be delighted to include them.
Most manufacturers featured a promotional articles like this one.
I was intrigued to see the addresses of the dealerships in many of the ads, and wondered how many of the buildings still existed. For Packard, just three.
Still holding onto its Art Deco flourishes, here is what was once the Maywood, CA Security Motors dealership at 6101 Atlantic Blvd.
The Santa Monica Simonson dealership at 1626 Wilshire Blvd, now Mercedes Benz but still featuring the Packard crest above the entrance, has been in business since 1937.
