I asked a friend about Orr. PeteLeathersac on sYc

“What the Post site guy must be questioning was a Chevrolet Dealership in Kitchener called Orr Automobiles - Zone #85 - Dealer Code #’s 761.
This was the same dealer that later became Stedelbauer Motors (which I have a Dealer Emblem from) - Zone #85 - Dealer Code #’s 762.
Not sure what connection they were to the performance dealer Stedelbauer in Edmonton which was Zone #82 - Dealer Code #’s 102.
Stedelbauer Kitchener was purchased by Stockie Chevrolet who was one of the dealers that lost big time when his franchise was terminated w/ the GM shutdown.”

Hi Ryan,
Cool info! thank you.
I am also a member of SYC.
I wonder when it changed from Orr to Stedelbauer. It says Orr on my docs. Delivery was late April '68 There is no dealer emblem on my car just holes.

  Mark,

My brother has a '68 Chevelle from Orr Auto. as well.  

I did locate some Orr memorabilia at a Woodstock swap meet last year.   Next time I'm visitng my brother I'll take some pics of the items.  One was a newspaper ad and some Orr oil change stickers that go in the door jam.

The vendor said he had a emblem at home but after several emails to the guy after the show he failed to comminucate.

Sweet!..nice 68 Chevelle (and 69) by the way. Yes please, I would be interested in anything at all information, pictures, etc. Even if I could find someone with an emblem I could make a copy pretty easily of it if you ever find one.
