1955 Dealer Awards Info?

As some of you may remember from my earlier posts, my family had a Packard dealership (Packard Hempstead) in Hempstead, Long Island, NY. An item that my Mom recently gave me is a marble pen set with clock that my Dad received from Packard. The plaque reads "AWARDED FOR OUTSTANDING SALES ACHIEVEMENT PACKARD-CLIPPER-DIV. 1955". I've attached two pictures below.

Does anyone have any factory literature that would have been sent to dealers informing them of sales contests and selling awards for 1955?

r1lark,
I have seen something about awards in the magazine/publication that went to the dealers. I will go and look for it, hopefully my memory is right.

Yes, sure is! Is that out of the Packard newsletter sent to dealers?

All of this info is great! Many thanks to Let the Ride Decide, and to ECAnthony for the pics.

Let the Ride Decide - do you have the capability to scan the article on the renovation to the Packard Hempstead building? What issue of the Packard News was that contained in?

As a kid, we had a lot of items around the house that came from sales awards, both from Packard, Studebaker, and Datsun. Skotch Plaid coolers, a freestanding cabinet stereo, and other things. I'll have to ask my mom if she remembers the various things my dad won.

I will try scanning.
Sometimes the scanning pixelates the images.

Here was one more from last night that I did not upload.

What years did your family have the Packard dealership?
Were you a dual Packard/Studebaker dealer?
