A Bit of History: Basso Automobile Dealership and Service Shop.
"One of Los Angeles' earliest auto dealerships, a fixture in what was once the city's Little Italy district, will live on as the new headquarters of a prominent architectural firm. Johnson Fain, the Los Angeles firm that designed such landmarks as Fox Plaza and the new MGM Tower in Century City, bought the former Basso Chrysler/Jeep dealership building just north of Chinatown on North Broadway and is converting the old showrooms and service garage into offices and design studios for about 100 employees. [÷] The property is near the original Casper de Portola encampment of 1781, which marked the city's beginning as a pueblo at a bend in the Los Angeles River. [÷] In 1923, immigrant Domenich Basso built an auto dealership at 1201 N. Broadway. It remained in business until 2003. Basso sought a more sedate living after an automobile racing career that started in 1908, when competing cars carried a driver and a mechanic. Basso rode beside "Terrible" Teddy Tetzlaff as a mechanic when he set a speed record of 142.85 mph on a Utah salt flat in 1914. He also rode with racecar driver Eddie Rickenbacker, who went on to become the top U.S. pilot in World War I. Basso gave up professional racing in 1916 after a long stay in a Kalamazoo, Mich., hospital. [÷] In the 1930s, Los Angeles officials moved residents of Chinatown into much of what had been Little Italy to make way for construction of Union Station on Alameda Street. Basso's dealership continued to prosper, selling Essex, DeSoto and Plymouth automobiles, among others. Basso hired his future son-in-law, Joe Boccalero, in 1941. [÷] When Basso died in 1963, Boccalero took over the running of the dealership that was left to his wife, Alberta, and sister-in-law, Alma Connolly. For years, Boccalero displayed in a window facing Broadway an olive drab World War II Jeep that he rescued from a ditch on Santa Catalina Island long after it had been used in the filming of the 1949 World War II movie "Sands of Iwo Jima," starring John Wayne. [÷]" (From: "California: Architects Find Old Car Dealership Is Their Style; Johnson Fain will relocate offices to the former Basso Chrysler/ Jeep facility on North Broadway," by Roger Vincent, Los Angeles Times, Mar 27, 2004, pg.
