Car Dealers and Gas Stations in Johnson County Missouri

Thanks Peggy Nuckles

The Hamilton Motor Company

"They called him Precious.  Precious Hamilton.  Where he got that name, I'll never know but everybody called him Precious." Buddy Baker, my resident walking Warrensburg History Book, recalled.  According to Carole Wiczynski, a relative of Mr. Hamilton, he is the furthest to the right of the men in business suits. The picture was developed from the Simmons Studio collection of negatives.  

I couldn't blow up the calendar behind them, so I have no idea when this picture was taken, but Buddy believes the car below is a Desoto from around the mid-40s. DeSoto sales at 112 East Pine Street Warrensburg.
Buddy remembers when Hamilton Motors was on East Pine street just behind where the United Missouri Bank is today.  

The Oldsmobile Rocket was in production from 1949 to 1960.

The 1948 Warrensburg phone book shows they had moved to 314 N. Holden.
They were still in the 1966 phone book, but weren't listed in 1968.
