Iverson Chrysler buys Huron dealership

HURON (AP) — Sibley Motor Inc., a longtime Huron dealership, has been sold to Iverson Chrysler Center Inc., of Mitchell.

Owner Mark Sibley, in announcing the sale, said Iverson will take over on Monday.

Sibley will stay on as manager and the entire 10-member staff will remain.

“Our whole crew will stay,” he said, noting that it was a key factor in the transaction.

Sibley Motor Inc. has been a part of the Huron business community since 1969, when Eugene Sibley bought out Urquhart & Sons. In 1972, Sibley moved the dealership from the current Signature Plus location at 363 Wisconsin Ave. S.W. to 450 Fourth St. N.E. along Highway 14.

Iverson Chrysler Center Inc. is a strong, well-known dealership owned by John Iverson.

“John’s very, very community minded and likes to be involved in a lot of community events,” Mark Sibley said. “So he’ll be a real attribute to this community, and that was very important to me,” he said.

The Iverson dealership is strong in the eyes of the Mitchell community and the Chrysler Corporation, Sibley said.

Both dealerships carry a line of Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge and Ram products. Sibley said the transition will mean an influx of new and preowned vehicles on the sales lot.

“I think Huron’s going to be fortunate to have someone take this dealership to the next level,” Sibley said. “(Iverson) will do a good job.”
