Old dealerships

Good day all.

Is there any way to find the name of the dealership for M-B in Fort Worth TX back in the 1950s?

The current dealership opened in 1987, but has no record or knowledge of any previous dealerships.

Thanks.
Tom in CT

Survey says, number one answer!

Libraries often have old phone books.

Hall of records for business licenses in the area.

Property records for owners of property (probably won't help, because it might not be the same name as the business).

Thanks gentlemen. I'll try those suggestions. I'm also contacting the Fort Worth MB Club.
