About Ramsey Auto Center

Ramsey Auto Center traces its history to 1946, when founders Gerry Sumner and J.D. Ramsey began selling and servicing Pontiacs in downtown Des Moines. Located at 519 4th Street, Sumner Pontiac grew to eventually become one of the top-volume sales leaders in the United States. As the decades passed, the dealership's name evolved to Sumner-Ramsey Pontiac and eventually to Ramsey Pontiac.

Over the years, Ramsey has had the BPG, Vauxhall, Peugeot, Porsche, Audi and Isetta car lines. Ramsey has sold Champion, Sprite and Twinkle Twilight Trailers. In 1975, Ramsey acquired a Subaru franchise, and in 1989, a Mazda franchise. With previous used car locations on Hubbell Ave. and Downtown Des Moines near 7th St. and Grand Ave., the need for expansion precipitated the growing company to move to Urbandale. Today, Ramsey Subaru of Des Moines and Ramsey Mazda are Iowa's #1 volume sales leaders for those brands.

The photo above was taken to commemorate Ramsey Subaru of Des Moines being recognized this year by Subaru of America for their 40 Year Anniversary of representing Subaru in Central Iowa.
