Welcome To Graff ChevroletAbout Graff Chevrolet, A Dallas & Fort Worth, Texas Suburb Chevy Dealership
Serving Chevrolet Customers For Over 60 Years At 1405 E. Main Street In Grand Prairie, TX
In 1952 Alvin V. Graff opened Graff Chevrolet at 1405 E. Main St. in Grand Prairie, Texas. The dealership started out small, with 50-60 employees, and featured a "State of the Art", modern (at that time) Showroom with an Accounting Office, Parts & Service Departments. In 1956 Mr. Graff opened a Body Shop behind the Service Department
It was a simpler time back then. The Chevy's were big, stylish and fun to drive. One of the first vehicles sold at Graff Chevrolet was a Brand New 1953 hand-built, Polo White Corvette with Red interior. In 1957, one of the most Iconic vehicles of all time-the '57 Bel Air arrived and Graff sold several.
The Chevy Suburban was out for nearly thirteen years when Mr. Graff opened in '52, and is currently the longest-running production vehicle in America, now built right up the street at the Arlington Assembly Plant.
In 1981 Mr. Graff had his son Stan move up from San Antonio to help with the family business. After working hard by his father's side, Stan learned about the business and especially the Chevrolet brand.
As Graff Chevrolet prospered, and had been building great relationships with our guests for years, we outgrew our space, and so expanded to cover all four corners of Main & 14th in Grand Prairie.
Just in time for Christmas and the New Year, another Chevy Franchise came available in McKinney, so Alvin and his son Stan purchased what is now El Dorado Motors Chevy- Mazda, right off US 75 at exit 42. Both Graff Chevrolet and El Dorado Motors have prospered since.
In April, 1997, Graff sadly lost our founder, Alvin. Mr. Graff believed "You get back what you give" Alvin's son, Stan has operated both dealerships on that principal ever since, and strives to honor his father by keeping Graff and El Dorado friendly, caring places for not only our guests, but our employees as well.
Graff Chevrolet is very active in the community, with sponsoring the Graff Chevrolet Ultra Lounge comedy and music venue at the Uptown Theater in Grand Prairie. Graff is a main sponsor of the Sgt. Gregory L. Hunter Memorial Golf Tournament, honoring the fallen Grand Prairie Police Officer that was lost in the line of duty in 2004. We sponsor several events, such as Prairie Lights, and we even gave away a new Chevy to the Grand Prairie High School Student with the best grades and perfect attendance. For several years, Graff has been a prominent member of the Grand Prairie Community, and we strongly believe in giving back to the town we call home.
We've recently completed our interior and exterior remodeling of our Showroom, Parts and Service Departments, opened a new Guest Lounge area with free WiFi and a big-screen T.V. soft drinks and other amenities.
At Graff, our low overhead means the lowest prices in North Texas on a new Chevrolet, and we guarantee it. We are not, nor will we ever be owned by some big corporation that cares more about dollars than they do their guests or employees.
Graff Chevrolet has a strong and committed sales staff with many years
of experience satisfying our customers' needs. Feel free to browse our

Graff Chevrolet and El Dorado Motors are, and will always be a family business, and someday Stan will proudly pass these Dealerships on to his son, just as his father, Alvin did to him.
From Stan Graff, and all of the hard-working dedicated employees that make up the Graff & El Dorado Family, a sincere, heartfelt "Thank You" for your trust and confidence in us over the past 60 years, and we will be here to serve you for many more years to come.
Graff will always be "Good People doing Great Business in Grand Prairie and McKinney" but to go with our new, updated showrooms,
