Cyle J. Murray sold the Cadillac, the “Standard of the World” at his dealership located at 100 W. 7th St. in Sioux City, Iowa. He was born in Villisca, Iowa, in 1897, and in 1935 he established C. J. Murray Cadillac, which grew, and in time the became the Automaker’s distributor for its cars in thirty counties in the state. His enterprise also handled GMC trucks and Massey-Harris farm machinery.
This showroom setting on a terrazzo floor is much more impressive than that at the Deal and Davie Oldsmobile-GMC-Cadillac we visited recently, which had a 1952 Cadillac, a Coupe De Ville on its salesroom floor. Here at C. J. Murray Cadillac, we can see a pair of ’50 sedans and the parts room counter at the far end of the room.
