There is little information to be found about the LeFevre Motor Company, which sold and serviced Studebaker and Dodge cars and trucks at 312 3rd Ave. in Brookings, South Dakota. Other than this set of photos and the information with them, the only other details that came to light was that the Company also had Edsel agency probably in another location. The lead image containing a Studebaker Lark was taken in May of 1962 when LeFevre was a dealer for the automaker.

- Dick Landy’s drag racing team sponsored by Dodge made an appearance at the dealership in May of 1969. Note the “Ride with the Scat Pack” logo in the showroom window that referred to the optional 440 Magnum engine equipped with three two-barrel carburetors.
