Old Mercedes-Benz dealers

Do you know of any Mercedes-Benz dealers that have been around for decades? More precisely, any American dealer that has been in the same location since 1966 or earlier. Can you help me find any of these garages?

Thanks!

Im not sure where you are, but RBM of Atlanta has been in the same place for like... 20 years or so... so has Mercedes-Benz of South Atlanta

I don't think it would be a good idea for me to create a signature. It would probably just be some shameless plug about me being a Realtor.

I'm sorry to hear/happy (depending on what you're looking for) to hear about Susie.

Twenty years is great, but I need dealerships that have been in the same location for more than 45 years. I'm sure there can't be that many of them in the US.

Thanks!

Lol, thanks! She likes being a whore. LMAO.

I think Mercedes Beverly Hills or Manhattan INC maybe that old, but again, I'm not sure...

Rasmussen in Portland, Oregon was the first Mercedes dealer in the USA.

From their web-site:
Don Rasmussen Company was established in 1950 with the Rasmussen Studebaker dealership on West Burnside in Portland, Oregon. As the popularity of Studebaker began to wane in the late 1950's, Don Rasmussen, Sr. demonstrated keen foresight and set a precedent in the American automotive world by establishing the first Mercedes-Benz dealership in the U.S. in 1957. Don Rasmussen Company continues to represent Mercedes-Benz today as Mercedes-Benz of Portland and Mercedes-Benz of Wilsonville.

I'm pretty sure that the dealership in Akron, Ohio is that old. Used to be Geller, but was sold to Ganley around 15 years ago.
