A friend of mine was looking for the dealership also. I found photos of Guaranty Chevrolet, San Diego from 1977 (B&W) and 2010 (turned into a furniture store).

Those are cool photos.. I've lived in San Diego since '76.

El Cajon Blvd used to be THE spot to cruise on Saturday night.

They now do a nice weekly car show in the summer.. in fact, this photo was taken not far from there last summer:

Thanks all, the pictures really help. The car is a race car configuration so I was wondering about how much Guaranty did in the racing world. I ordered the NCRS dealer info a few months back, not much there except the build date and dealer numbers and address. This is all I have left of those days that came with the car:

I've never seen anything to say Guaranty was into racing on any professional level. That dealership was in the cruising area and would have been the most passed for most car enthusiast at the time. There's an old photo from the San Diego riot/Drag strip riot of a Corvair with a Guaranty frame.
