Tom Wood Automotive

Tom Wood Automotive began when Tom Wood bought a small Hillman Sunbeam dealership in Kalamazoo. Within two years, the manufacturer went out of business and Mr. Wood was forced to change his operation into a wholesale-retail used car lot with a complete body shop. He continued this operation until moving to Indianapolis in 1967 and purchasing Hedged Pontiac on Washington Street. Tom Wood Inc has since grown to 17 franchises and a full-scale leasing operation in four cities.Although Mr. Wood is no longer with us, his philosophy of “Success is not measured by the number of franchises or locations an organization has; it is measured by the people associated with it,” is still around.

At Tom Wood Automotive we believe in giving back to the people of Indianapolis and other local communities. We are very proud to partner with the non-for-profit charity organizations such as the Salvation Army through financial contributions, sponsorships, event hosting and fund raising. Our family owned company cares about our great city and is honored to help so many wonderful organizations.
