Automobile Warehouses Inc. was located in the Marble Hill section of the Bronx borough of New York City on the borderline with Manhatten. The Company’s business was final preparation of automobiles before delivery to new car dealers and individuals in the greater NYC region. The operation is reported to have handled up to four-thousand automobiles a month.
Located at Kingsbridge Avenue and West 230th Street in a six-story brick warehouse building that has survived, the parking lot is filled with circa 1946 to ’48 Plymouth, Nash, Studebaker, and Kaiser-Frazier vehicles. With the exception of Dodge, the Company apparently provided final prep and distribution services to post-war independent automakers.
