About Our Autogroup's History | Ford,Buick,GMC Dealership in Kirkwood, MO
We know that where you buy your vehicle matters, and more important than where, is from who. The Suntrup Auto Group is a family owned and operated business. Our expertise in working with automobiles goes back to the 1980s when one of our founding members, Tom Suntrup began working at Northgate Motors in 1984 selling vehicles such as Volkswagen, Mazda and Subaru. After operating at that location, Tom Suntrup partnered with his father, Bill, and together they formed W.C. Motor Company Inc. in 1987, which housed Saab, Alfa Romeo, and Peugeot.
In 1990 Tom purchased the Volvo franchise, and in the mid 90’s Tom sold Volvo stock to his brother Chris, and the brothers are still partners today. The fun did not stop with Volvos though, the story continued as Tom opened up more dealerships including Suntrup Ford Inc. in 1992 located in Bridgeton. Today that site is known as Suntrup Ford Westport. In 1994 General Motors appointed Tom the Buick GMC Franchise in St. Charles County, and Suntrup Ford Kirkwood was established in 1997.
Combined, these dealerships make up the Suntrup Auto Group, and we are proud that even today they are family owned and operated. Not many other companies and dealerships can say the same thing.
With expertise that spans longer than 40 years in the automotive industry, we provide excellent service to the St Louis area.
