The Old Car Dealer Dept.

1973 Yellow Pages ad

Not all car dealers were always located along Sheridan Drive, Transit Road, or Southwestern Boulevard. In 1973, when this Yellow Pages ad ran, Auto Villa Toyota could be found at 2509 Niagara Falls Blvd. in Niagara Falls, N.Y. just beyond the Wheatfield town line. Back then, just as now, Toyota sold a multitude of vehicles, including the large Crown sedan, economical Corolla, compact Corona, and the new, sporty, Mustang-inspired Celica.
