Wiele History

Doug Duncan and Neil Wiele opened Duncan-Wiele Chevrolet in September of 1972 at the original downtown West Liberty location. Wiele Chevrolet Inc. continued with the family business in January of 1978 when Tom Wiele went from employee to partner with his father Neil. Kent Wiele became a full time employee in May of 1987. Jeff Wiele joined his father, Tom in sales in 2004 after his graduation from Coe College.

In November of 1993, we opened Wiele Motor Company in downtown Columbus Junction. This is the location that started the family ambition, as Neil’s father-in-law Harold “Spin” Duncan previously owned it. We purchased this location to offer our customers more vehicle selection by adding Buick, Pontiac, and Oldsmobile.

In May of 1994, we built and moved into our existing facility on Highway 6 just west of the city limits of West Liberty. In June of 1996, we built and moved into our current location just 2 miles west of Columbus Junction on Highway 92. In 2004, Tom’s other son, Mick Wiele, joined in sales at our Columbus Junction location. Our entire staff cordially invites you to visit a tradition of excellence that began over 39 years ago.
