Built in 1913

The east side of this building initially housed the B.F. Goodrich Tire dealer for St. Louis and the west side housed General Motor Car Co., the St. Louis Hupmobile dealer.

From 1917 to 1934 the building was the home of a Ford automobile dealership, Tevis Motor Co. During this period, the cars in the showroom of the building evolved from the Model T, "the car that put America on wheels," to, in 1932, the first popular priced car with a V-8 motor. Briefly in the 1930's a dealership for Auburn and Cord occupied the building. In 1929, the Cord became the first front wheel drive car in the world, to be produced in quantity. However the Cord is best remembered for its art deco styled, "coffin nosed" 1936 and 1937 models.
