Our History

 

 

Theodore Uebelhor grew up in Southern Indiana helping customers while working at the "H. M. Uebelhor" General Store, in St. Henry, IN.

In the mid 1920's, “Ted” began selling cars and trucks for the Holder Co. In 1929. Ted had an opportunity to purchase the Chevrolet dealership in St. Meinrad, IN, which he operated until 1942, when he and John Struckman purchased the Chevrolet dealership in Jasper, IN.


 



 

 

 

The two partners added Oldsmobile in 1947, and Cadillac in 1949. Ted's son, Paul, purchased Mr. Struckman's ownership in 1962, and Uebelhor and Sons Motor Co. was born.

Ted passed away in 1977, so Paul carried the Uebelhor tradition into the 2nd Generation. Two of Paul's sons, Chris and Tony, joined the organization full time in 1983.

Paul passed away in 1997, and the 3rd Generation was in place to lead the dealership into the 21st century. The Uebelhors added Toyota in 1989 and Scion in 2005, followed by a new GMC-Cadillac store in Vincennes, IN in 2006.

3 GENERATIONS OF CUSTOMERS SENDING THEIR FRIENDS & FAMILY TO UEBELHOR AND SONS!  


In the mid 20's, while Ted was working for the Holders, he was at home eating the evening meal with his family.  


His mother, who was a great source of prospects for him, expressed concern over his job selling cars.  


She said, "Theodore, I think you should look for a different job".  


Ted replied, "But Mom, I love my job".  


Her response, "Yes, but everyone I know already has a car and I don’t see much future in car sales!  


Are we ever glad that Ted didn't listen to his Mom - that time!
