1939-   JH Carlton Motor Co. 9 East 9th St. Coffeyville KS  
1945-48   Cary Motors, Inc. N-S Highway Coffeyville KS  
My father owned that company. It was closed in 1948. I believe it existed from 1945 or 1946 (he bought it just after WWII) and we left Coffeyville in the summer of 1948. Here's the listing from the business directory. "Cary Motors Inc., Nelson L. Cary Pres and Mgr., Crescentia C. Cary Sec-Treas, F.B. Jensen Director, Nash Sales and Service, Sinclair Products, Alemite Lubrication, 1201-5 Walnut, Tel 1702. (For further information see Page 7 Buyers' Guide.)" I looked in the buyers guide and there was just an ad with no additional information and no pictures there. I still think it's possible there was a photo in the newspaper. As I recall (from when I was 5) the building was nothing unusual. I think the showroom was on the south end and the shops on the north end. Not a large place. That location was, and is, at the southeast edge of town on the N-S highway, adjacent to the railroad track. I do recall riding in the Nash, which had a fold-down back seat that was great for my sister and me to play and sleep in--like a station wagon.

1929-46 1937 Hill Nash Sales Co. N Second Ave. Dodge City KS Raymond Chapman Hill

My Dad, Raymond Chapman Hill, obtained a Nash dealership for Dodge City, Kansas in 1929.
He purchased 6 Nash cars in Kansas City and caravanned to Dodge City. He owned the dealership until 1946 when he sold it to Roy Mace.
It was located on North Second Ave. Just North of the Arkansas River and across from Wright Park.
He often talked about the Nash that had twin ignition and how he had his mechanic install a switch so that he could use only one coil.
He would start the test drive on one coil and have the customer start up boot hill and the car would start to bog down,
he would then flip the switch for two coils and two spark plugs and the car would go right up the hill. He said that switch sold him many cars.
