The Papa’s Story
We are celebrating our 70th year of being in business. Since 1947, the Papa’s family business has been serving the Central Connecticut and Hartford area with the finest new and used cars and trucks by providing the very best price and service after each sale. To date, we have sold over 125,000 new and used cars and trucks over our 69year history, which is a feat in and of itself. We started off selling Crosley, Hudson and American Motors Ramblers in the 1950’s then soon added IH-Scout, Simca and Sunbeam Sports Cars to our repertoire. It wouldn’t be until 1967, however, that we added Dodge and Jeep to our inventory and began our long heritage as the best new Dodge and Jeep dealer in the Hartford area. A few years later, Renault was added, as well as Shelby in 1986. Hummer joined us in 1995, too. In 2007, Papa’s added the Medium Duty line of Dodge Trucks and the Sprinter line of Cargo and Passenger Vans to our product line, and then the Chrysler brand in 2008. We are now known as Papa’s Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram & SRT, your full-line Chrysler Corporation dealer in the Hartford area. Papa’s is currently ranked as the largest full-line Chrysler dealer in the six New England states; that’s something we are very proud of. It allows us to pass the savings on to our customers (something we enjoy even more than cars). We look forward to being able to assist you in finding a new or used car in Hartford, CT.

A Word from our Management Team
From our humble beginnings, the Papa brothers Eugene and Domenic started with a two bay repair garage and gasoline station in 1947. You can see this exact scale replica in the museum and automobile memorabilia display area inside our Papa’s Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram & SRT showroom in New Britain.
Becoming a Chrysler Five Star Dealer is a way of life at Papa’s. We have earned this Customer Service Award every year since 1988 without exception. Again, that’s more than two decades and counting! Our vehicle Service Desk is open Monday through Saturday for our customer’s needs.
Over the years, our family business grew to become the #1 volume and largest Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram & SRT Dealer in Connecticut for 3 years running, 2010, 2011 and 2012. We are also the #1 Small Business Dealer for 2011 and 2012 as well as DealerRaters “Dealer of the Year” for all 4 brands in 2013. We did this because we always put our customers first.
We wash every vehicle that comes to Papa’s for needed services at “No Charge”. It is our way of saying “Thank You” to all of our guests who use our automotive repair and service facilities to maintain and repair their vehicle. Papa’s also offers a complete vehicle detail and cleaning service for our guests. Keep your vehicle looking great all year long. A mini-detail including cleaning your windows and a vacuum is available too. Ask our Service Adviser for details and pricing.
