Sellers Buick/GMC celebrates 50 years in business

Farmington Hills auto dealership, Sellers Buick/GMC, reached a milestone and celebrated 50 years in the automotive business.

Bob Sellers, the original owner, opened his Pontiac dealership in Redford in 1972. His father owned a Detroit Ford dealership in Southfield and Grand River, and he grew up admiring the auto industry. The oil embargo hit the country in 1973, and Sellers’ new dealership faced its first – one of many – business challenges.

He continued to grow his business over the years through his personal hands-on leadership style with his clients and his employees.

A lot has changed since 1972, when the dealership opened, from one of its first cars sold, the 1972 Pontiac Grand Prix, to the new electric car going on sale at Sellers in 2024, the GMC Hummer EV pickup and SUV.
