Local car dealer Dale Willey has announced he has has completed the purchase of the GMC Truck franchise from Ellena Buick-Jeep-Eagle and is now the franchised dealer for the Lawrence and Douglas County area.
Willey's dealership, Dale Willey Pontiac-Cadillac-GMC Truck Inc., 2840 Iowas, is now able to sell and service all GMC light duty vehicles, Willey said today.
"We're now officially the GMC truck dealer and excited as the devil about it," Willey said. "We're serious about the light duty truck business and we're going to be carrying a lot of inventory and a broader mix, such as vans, suburbans and cargo vans, as well as traditional pickups and four-wheel drives."
Willey has been in Lawrence for 20 years this month and started with the Pontiac-Cadillac franchises. He had the AMC-Jeep franchise from 1975 to 1981.
