Nampa car dealership Dan Wiebold Ford sold

Boise - The Idaho StatesmanSeptember 9, 2013 

Dan Wiebold Ford in Nampa has been sold to North Dakota-based Corwin Automotive Group. The dealership has operated in the Treasure Valley for 38 years.

The dealership's name will change to Corwin Ford.

The dealer owner and namesake, Dan Wiebold, announced the sale in a Monday release, saying most of his employees would remain at the dealership under the new ownership.

"In this transition we are doing everything we can to make sure the new owners are well acclimated to the area, customers and most importantly, our employees," Wiebold said in the release. "The employees are really what makes a successful business and the Corwin family really has the same philosophy."

Sale terms were not disclosed.

The Nampa location will be the Corwin Automotive Group's 10th and first in Idaho. Tanner Corwin, the great grandson of group founder F.W. Corwin, co-owns the group with his father and brother. He moved to the Treasure Valley to work as the operating dealer of the operation.

Tanner Corwin said Wiebold was attractive because of its track record.

"It's been a tremendously successful dealership," Corwin said. "It's been the largest Ford dealer in Idaho I believe for the last 13 years. It has a terrific reputation and a terrific staff we were lucky to retain. We feel Nampa is a rapidly growing market for this franchise."
