Why Choose Kupper Automotive?

Our History

Kupper Chevrolet, originally started as Robert Chase Chevrolet Inc, which opened in 1935. In 1980, Robert Chase retired and sold the dealership to Ivan Gandrud Chevrolet, Inc, at that time, a newly formed corporation out of Grand Forks. Gandrud formerly managed Rydell Chevrolet in Grand Forks.

  In 1988, Gandrud sold the dealership to one of his              salesman, Dave Ressler. Ressler ran and operated the dealership until late 1998 when he decided to buy  a store and move to Bozeman, MT. Ressler then decided to sell the store to now owner, Bob Kupper. Kupper worked his way up from salesman, to finance manager to general manager. 

Kupper began his buy-in in late 1999 and became sole owner in 2010. The dealership changed its name in March of 2011 to Kupper Chevrolet

In 2002, the Subaru franchised opened and was a natural fit for western North Dakota. Kupper Subaru carries a complete line of new Subaru vehicles, as well as offers a great selection of Subaru Certified Pre-Owned.

In 2011, Kupper purchased Bismarck Motor Company, the former Expressway Honda, Nissan, Hyundai, and ABRA Auto Body and Glass. Bismarck Motor Company is the home of three import franchises, HondaNissan and Hyundai.
