Auto dealers in Springfield (Datsun through Hyundai)

Note: This is one in a five-part list of automobile brands sold in Springfield through mid-2014 and the dealers who sold them. The list is broken up because of the length of the full list.

The original list was compiled by Tom Fitch. As the reader will see, some information in these lists is incomplete or unable to be determined. In addition, some aspects of Fitch’s original categories (created in a Microsoft Word document) would not translate into SangamonLink’s format. Our apologies for any confusion that results. Our apologies also for our inability to carry over much of the graphics — including emblems for most of the auto models — in Fitch’s list. 

More information is available elsewhere on SangamonLink for a few entries:

*The history of the Springfield/Rayfield Motor Car Co. is provided in more detail here.

*Guy Mathis, Springfield’s first auto dealer, also was an accomplished photographer.

*As a woman, Edna Weaver, president of Capitol City Motors Inc., must have been a rarity among early local auto dealers.
