Our founder Paul Kelly was first introduced to the car business when after World War 2 he started shipping cars down to Southern States for returning GI’s to buy their first vehicles. Began his interest in the automobile and the eventual founding of his own automotive company.
The Kelly Motor Company Was founded in 1949 by Paul Kelly in Scranton Pennsylvania. Kelly Motors started out as a used car dealership on Wyoming Avenue in Scranton, at the site of the current D.G. Nichols delivery car garage. Paul, who was a gifted businessman, quickly expanded to his first new car dealership called “Bus Kelly Chevrolet”, named after his brother. This dealership was located in Moscow, Pa and is currently the A.J. Auto Center, Formerly A.J. Chevrolet.
Paul got his start with Volkswagen selling the first Volkswagen Beetles in the Valley right off of his lot on Wyoming Ave. The little cars were different and people were attracted to them for there value, economy, easy repairs and low cost to buy own and fuel, much like VW's current lineup. By 1959 he was officially a franchised VW Dealer and has been since. We are one of the oldest still family owned VW dealers in the Country!
