Manheim Philadelphia hosted a Chrysler 50th anniversary sale for franchised Chrysler dealers in mid-October. The very first Chrysler Factory sale was held at Hatfield Auto Auction (now known as Manheim Philadelphia) in 1964. Both companies have maintained this relationship for 50 years.
“Chrysler is proud of its 50-year tradition of selling cars to our dealers at Manheim Philadelphia, and we look forward to growing our partnership in the market with greater volumes over the coming year,” said Mark Nagel, head of company car and remarketing for Chrysler.
Manheim Philadelphia, located at 2280 Bethlehem Pike in Hatfield, Pa., hosts bi-weekly closed sales for Chrysler.
“The sale not only recognizes our long and proud history — the first sale was held in 1964 — but also represents a partnership we greatly value and appreciate,” said Janet Barnard, EVP and Chief Operating Officer of Manheim North America. “While the automotive industry has undergone significant changes over the years – and our companies have been around to see a lot of them – there are some things that have remained the same. These include taking care of our customers, delivering an auction sale experience that continues to attract buyers and sellers and working together toward mutual success.”
