former Perry L. Black Oldsmobile Cadillac
Leavenworth, KS
The Perry L. Black Oldsmobile Cadillac dealership building was built in 1940. The original sign is supposedly underneath the Herken's rooftop sign. The building now houses Flatland Vapes Leavenworth. For more, see this website. [map]

Lewis Chevrolet
Liberal, KS
Lewis Chevrolet is part of the Lewis Automotive Group which was established in 1977 and has four other Kansas locations. This building was still housing Stu Emmert Chevrolet-Buick-Cadillac in 2012. Lewis has been there since at least 2019. Emmert was established in 1972 and they likely occupied this same building then. The dealership was previously known as Hood Chevrolet Buick. I believe this is an older building that received a mid-century, Southwest makeover at some point. [map]

A.B. Hunt's Garage

A.B. Hunt's Garage was a Ford dealership and service garage. It was established by 1917 and this building may be from then. The building now houses Southwest Glass & Door. For more, see this website. [map]
