Westwood Ford? UCLA Area?

I tracked down the original owner of my '66 FB and he says he bought it new at a Ford dealer near the UCLA campus; he thinks "Westwood Ford". Was there such a dealer? I can't find any history on it if there was. Or if not Westwood, what dealer would have been close to UCLA?

Re: Westwood Ford? UCLA Area?

The one I remember was Santa Monica Ford on Santa Monica Blvd. It still there. My dad purchased a 76 Pinto at that location. I dont remember a Westwood Ford, sorry

The 2nd owner swore that the original owner bought the car at Galpin, and he used to have the window sticker so he should know. But the original owner said it was not Galpin and was for sure close to UCLA because he was going to school there. One of you SoCal old timers must know or have an idea. Thanks for your input on this!

Yes, that info is available with a Marti report, but Marti's are only available on 1967 and newer cars. That is why it is such a shame that the original window sticker for my car has been lost along the way, as without it many of these details are unknown.

Westwood Ford? UCLA Area?

A quick google search shows a Stockton Quincy Ford once existed on Westwood Blvd.




If you read on ford-trucks.com forum, a guy apparently knows a fair bit about that place.

http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/84...-what-lol.html

Don't know when it closed, but I don't remember seeing it when I started going to Westwood Village in the late 80's.

[edit] That location is only a few blocks from UCLA.

It could be Buerge Ford also. From their homepage:

"Buerge Ford is one of the longest continually active Ford franchises in California and the United States. We trace our roots back to 1915 in Westwood. Buerge Ford has been selling cars and trucks, servicing cars and trucks, and selling parts for cars and trucks for over ninety-three (93) years! On top of that we are on Route 66 - the "mother road" of the West! Located just under a mile from the 405 Freeway at 11800 Santa Monica Boulevard. Buerge Ford and Buerge Chrysler Jeep are family run local businesses that have sold and serviced new Ford, Chrysler, and Jeep cars and trucks for decades. We've got grandfathers and grandmothers, fathers and mothers, who bring their children and grandchildren in for their first new car or truck. We have families and friends who have purchased cars here for generations."

I followed the Ford Truck link that gothand suggested and learned for a former employee of Stockton Quincy that Stockton Quincy merged into Walker Buerge Ford (later Buerge Ford) in 1967. My PO seems unclear where he actually bought my car when it was new (which seems sort of odd to me), but he seems sure it was close to UCLA campus and was NOT Buerge, and he "thinks" it was Stockton Quincy. Thanks for the tip though, because Buerge seemed a real possibility.

I seem to remember hearing of incidences where one dealer would acquire a car from another dealer to supply their customer with what they're looking for. This might explain why the original owner remembers purchasing the car from a dealer near UCLA, but the second owner remembers the window sticker saying Galpin Ford. Farfetched, maybe, but anything's possible.

Well, the PO says he went to the dealer to order a Mustang and they told him it would be X weeks (like 6 or 8) so he went out on the lot and my car was sitting there on the lot and he bought it. You would think if he remembers these details he would remember where he was! LOL

He moved right after graduation and ended up near Galpin, where he had the car serviced. That may be where the 2nd owner got the Galpin connection.

Stockton Quincy Ford was in Westwood Village on Gayley Avenue, a few blocks south of the UCLA campus. My father knew him, and bought at least one car from him.
