Longview’s more than 100-year-old Pegues-Hurst Ford changed hands this week, joining with the Peltier family of dealerships.

Pegues-Hurst marked its 100th anniversary in Longview in 2015, with Ford officials saying then that it was the second-oldest family owned Ford dealership in Texas.

The business was founded in 1915 by J.G. Pegues. It became Pegues-Hurst in the mid-1940s when Julian Hurst became a full partner. Jim Hurst was the principal at the dealership since 1978.

Hurst has long been a community leader, previously serving as president of the Longview Economic Development Corp’s board of directors.

Social media posts on Pegues-Hurst Ford’s Facebook page congratulated Hurst on his retirement. Photos also marked the change at the dealership with pictures of the new pink Peltier signs in the license plates holders on trucks in the lot of the dealership at 200 Spur 63 at Cotton Street: “Pink is the new vibe around Peltier Ford Longview !!” the Facebook post says.

This will be Peltier Auto Group’s sixth location. Robert Peltier is president.

News reports say he plans to expand and relocate the dealership with construction of a new, 50,000-square-foot Ford dealership on U.S. 259.
