Dan Welle Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Ram
In 1963 Dan and Arlene purchased the Otto Brothers Dodge dealership from Bill Otto and changed its name to Dan Welle Motors, Inc. This building was located in downtown Sauk Centre where the Thread Shed III and NAPA Auto Parts stores are currently housed. The dealership stocked 15 vehicles, consisting of mostly cars. Not many vehicles were stocked in the late 1960’s because vehicles were mainly sold on order and could be delivered within a month. Dan expanded the dealership by adding the Chrysler franchise in 1968 and the Plymouth franchise in 1981.
