Welcome to Gary-Worth!

A bit of history

Gary-Worth is a family owned business that was founded in 1959. The name Gary-Worth is actually made by combining two first names Gary McManus (son) and Worth McManus (father). Gary-Worth began as a used car dealership on Union Avenue (now named Martin Luther King Blvd) in Portland. A few years later the Plymouth new car franchise was obtained and in 1970 the Chrysler franchise was added. Up until 1982 the company was called Gary-Worth Chrysler Plymouth. Gary-Worth Plymouth also sold International Harvester light duty trucks. In 1970 the company was relocated to property on McLoughlin Boulevard in Gladstone. In 1982 the Chrysler & Plymouth franchises were dropped and the Lincoln & Mercury franchises were added.

In July of 2008 the Lincoln & Mercury franchises were bought by Ford Motor Company as a part of their efforts to consolidate and move Lincoln & Mercury in with Ford dealerships. Our parts, service and body shop were closed on September 30th and our retail sales operations were closed on October 31, 2008.
