Old Ford Dealership, Adel

I always thought this was an old theatre, but thanks to B. Sutton, I now know that it was originally a Ford dealership and was later O. P. Fausett’s Phillips 66 station.

    The old Ford place McKinnon Motors was across the street where the Adel News and Cone Electric is. The north corner of Hutchinson Ave. & 5th St.

    I was born in Adel and for as long as I can remember it was a service station.

    I’m not sure what the building originally was, but all my life (21y/o) its been a hair salon. The name is “Debbie’s VIP”, hence the VIP sign, and the owner’s daughter is an Elvis impersonator, so those are TCB Band logos.
    As for Adel’s theater, it was torn down quite a long time ago.
    Sorry for a disappointing answer!

  4. Kilby, same as my guess or a power companys’ main office. Dating mid ’30s thru mid ’50s.

    Brian, is there another smaller building in Adel that was a post office at one time?

    It sure looks like a depression era movie palace. A bit dreary today but imagine it with a sheltering canopy and sign filled with neon light.

  7. Nice building. I’m going to guess an old radio station.
