Car City Motor Co. Inc. History
Car City Motor company was formed January 1, 1976. The company started out as a strictly used car operation with a secretary, one manager, two salesman and one light service mechanic.
On April 27, 1976, Car City was incorporated as Car City Motor Co., Inc., continuing the used car operation.
In January of 1982, Car City acquired the Chrysler, Plymouth, and Dodge franchise. After obtaining the Chrysler products franchise, Car City then became Car City Chrysler. In 1984, an additional location was purchased for our new truck and van sales, rental and collision repair departments.
In 2000, the Jeep line was added to the Chrysler, Ram and Dodge lines and six months later in May 2001, Hyundai was obtained.
In 2001, a new 7200 square foot facility was built to house the rental and body shop. We also added three additional inspection bays for the body shop and full parking for both customers and more display area for overflow inventory.
The property between McDonald's and Kmart was purchased in 2003. This was initially for additional display area. In 2005, the Car City Detail Center was opened, featuring full retail detailing services, showroom and automatic car wash.
