Hessing Thurber

Post by Faulkner » Sat Oct 06, 2018 9:42 am

Recently, Robert Austin Jr. from the Forward Look Facebook group shared with me some photos of the Hessing-Thurber dealership, where Faulkner was sold to David Sterling. Robert also has an old sign for Hessing that is now affixed to his garage door. And, he also has a dealer-installed trunk emblem for Hessing-Thurber! I hope to receive a good quality photo of the emblem from Robert, so that I can attempt to reproduce it.

Looks like a '59 Plymouth wagon on the lot. I'll take it! Is that a '57 or '58 next to it?

A '60 on the used car lot! Robert says the picture was taken about 1961. What's to the left of it?

Neat pictures Dan! I love how you know so much history of Faulkner. Do you know what the address or cross roads these were taken at? I would love to compare the "then" photos to what google street view is like now.

I just googled the dealership name and found a thread Dan that you had posted on (city-data.com) and answered the address question haha. Any luck reproducing the dealer emblem?

Will, I had a subsequent conversation with Robert Austin (who supplied the photos) - these were taken at the used car lot at Capitol Blvd and Idaho Street (You can see the capitol in one shot). According to my invoice, the dealership itself was at 1109 Idaho, which puts it at 11th and Idaho. Post some pix if you find 'em!
