The Jim Gauthier story began over 57 years ago with Jim Gauthier starting work at Russell Motors.
The affiliation continued when in 1959 Jim and his father Woodrow Gauthier opened Kustom Auto Sales in Transcona as a sub-dealership to Boulton Motors which later they became a Studebaker franchise on their own.
In 1967 Jim started as a sales person at Transcona AMC quickly rising to General Manager.
In 1972 bought Pan-Am Motors, selling it in 1977 while acquiring Transcona Dodge which he owned until 1980, when Jim Gauthier bought out Ed Vicker Community Chev Olds at 1290 Main Street, which became Jim Gauthier Chev Olds Cadillac "Home of The Big Guy".
Then in 1990 opened our doors at our current location at 1400 McPhillips & continued its evolution to JIM GAUTHIER CHEVROLET Ltd.
The Gauthier family of dealerships has since grown to include Gauthier Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM (1998), Gauthier Cadillac Buick GMC (2001), & Jim Gauthier's Waverley Chrysler Dodge Jeep (2005).
We believe that our association with the Chevrolet brand, backed by the reputation earned by Jim Gauthier, our commitment to complete customer satisfaction & our fine tradition of excellence, we will continue to be Winnipeg's premier sales & service destination, as we work everyday live up to the phrase?
