Yes, Tekoa WA. They closed in 1980. This was their "yearbook" photo in 1956. Dealers would put ads in the local High School Yearbooks to try and get Grads to buy a new car. I have that "TEKOA MOTORS" sign in my shop.

Guys , in attachment updated dealership list. If you are looking for a dealer number, you can find it here.
Over 2200 individual numbers, you can sort it alphabetically or by numbers. This list includes the 1950s, 60s and 70s.
Pay attention the note in the upper right corner. Also on the right you will find region number list. Have fun.

Here is my other dealer list (you can download from the attachment). Here you can find the names of the FL era dealers (1955-61 only).
This list does not include dealer numbers. You can sort it as you like, e.g. by city or state. Have fun.

Robert these two Excel lists should be a good thing but I get this message:

"File is corrupted and can not be repaired"

??????

I can't find a way around the issue and I tried a couple of different ways.

I have no idea what happened. I downloaded these files and got an error message too, but the system fixed it. Try it now, I have swapped files.

Edit: no, it still doesn't work
I will attach the excel version 97-2003

The xls version worked. Thanks.

I found the dealership to which my 56 Dodge was delivered.

However, I did not find the Storm Lake, IA dealer that George B's 56 Dodge was delivered. I found another Storm Lake dealer but not George's car's.

I did not find the dealership that Tim Dupont's 56 Dodge D500-1 was delivered to.

So hit and miss.

I missed working there during the Forward Look years, but here is my business card from Main Motors three years later. I did have the opportunity to sell several FL cars from the used car lot.

I have now received my build card from Danielle, very interesting. My NY was shipped to Stephen Butcher Hazelton PA ( No. 56209 ) . Is also in the list of RDP ). I wonder if anyone has any contemporary pictures of the dealer ?

It is so nice to see how the dealers still took their job so seriously. How the dealers and the new owners were so proud of their new family member.
Today you don't want something like that at all. Preferably all inclusive leasing , after 2 years throw away and the next soulless consumption car .

Yes that looks very similar. On the left there was some extra building to it, the small doors match. I like such photo shots .
At least the building is still standing and has not been replaced by a Walmart .

Some new Max Barish stuff. Got the postcard from Ebay recently. Can't find much info on the Imperial Salon. Looks like it was short lived.

Older vehicles definitely needed lubrication more often than our Forward Look cars. It would have been interested if they had included what vehicle needed this reminder. Of course, they may have still sent this to owners with cars that didn't need that frequent lubrication just to drive some extra business.
