Edward C. Kennard

Ed Kennard was the Buick sales manager starting in 1957. He later became the assistant general sales manager in charge of the eastern United States. He then went on to become the general manager of Cadillac.

This token was given out at a dealers meeting in Minneapolis in 1958. It was to be a symbol of hope for the future. Buick had been having very bad quality problems since 1955 concerning brakes, axles and water pumps, just to name a few. The quote is from Matthew 17:20, "And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you."  
The author of this article went on to write the book "The Good Old Days At The Buick".
