Courtesy Ford
Afton, WY
Courtesy Ford opened here in 1960. Before that, the building housed a Chevrolet dealership. I don't know what the relationship is or was with the Ford Theatre next door. The current facade was added to both buildings around 2006. It was created by Jonathan The Bear Man and features busts of Henry Ford, John Wayne, and Audrey Hepburn. The dealership sells Ford trucks and automobiles as well as Honda motorcycles and Husqvarna mowers. [map]

Dinneen Motor Company Building
Cheyenne, WY
The Dinneen Motor Company Building was built in 1927. There was originally a gas station on the corner. Lifts operated by city steam took cars to the body shop on the second floor. I don't know what make of automobiles was sold here originally. Over the years, the dealership sold Pontiac, Buick, Lincoln, Mercury, Subaru, and Mazda automobiles. The dealership closed in 2006. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It now houses a restaurant and retail space. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

Lusk, WY
This former dealership now houses Lusk Public Works. Does anyone know when it was built and what brand of car was sold here? [map]

Standard Motor
Rock Springs, WY
The Standard Motor building appears to be from the 1960s. The dealership sells used cars, motorcycles, ATVs and golf carts. I don't know if there was another dealership here originally or if this building housed another type of business. [map]

Hammer Chevrolet
Sheridan, WY
Hammer Chevrolet was established in 1937 as Hammer-Staunton Agricultural Implements and Chevrolet. In the late 1940s, the business became Ed Hammer and focused on selling Chevrolet and Oldsmobile cars. In 1950, the building was expanded and Art Deco features were added. In 2004, the building was completely remodeled but some of the previous design elements were recreated. In 2023, the dealership was bought out by Wareing Chevrolet. The letters for Ed Hammer Inc. have been removed but I believe the other signs are still there. For more, see this website. [map]

Asmus Auto Sales
Torrington, WY
The Asmus Auto Sales building appears to be a former dealership. Does anyone know what was here originally or when this was built? [map]
