I visit the Auburn showroom in Chicagos automobile row as often as possible.
It is an interesting area with the strong majority of the buildings being dealerships or in the automotive trade.
I usually order an Auburn 12 salon, in polychromatic colors ,and I have a deposit there ready to go, but I cannot make up my mind as to body style.
Seriously, if anyone is in Chicago and would like to tour the dealership, and auto row, feel free to contact me. Auto row iss mostly on Cermack rd (2200 south) and Michigan av.
There is alot of gangster history there and music history. Tours of Chess Records are available.
I would like to have all the Chicago photos of ACD cars, and belive me , many photos were shot there, in particular by Soldiers Field, downtown, and in front of a well known tall building in Hyde Park, across from todays Science and Industry.

Justin: Somewhere in my stack of papers I have the address of an ACD dealer in Denver. It was on Cleveland St. which is a very short block. I found it by going through old phone book yellow pages at the library. Probably can do it on-line now. Anyhow, Cleveland has no dealer buildings left.

I'm sad to say I haven't made much progress on this yet but have a list of old photography studios here in town that have a lot of photography of old dealerships downtown. I intend to check with them to try to dig up some photos.

The ACD Museum has compiled an informal list of known dealers based on pieces in the archives that have dealer stamps on them and also company correspondence. It is enormous and difficult to qualify. There is no differentiation between a small repair garage that bought a part once and a full blown showroom dealer. Nevertheless it is a starting point and I'm happy to have the reference.

Tim I'd love the info on the Cleveland St. dealer sometime thanks.

Greg is correct - if you email Jon at <a href="mailto:jonb@automobilemuseum.org]jonb@automobilemuseum.org[/url] he should be able to send you the Utah information they have. It is not complete or exhaustive by any means but is a good starting point.
