Lundgren's History

The Dealership started in 1929 and was then known as Hawkinson Lundgren Company. The two principals were Arnold Hawkinson and Axel Lundgren. They both worked for Northwestern Motors, a Ford dealership in Virginia, then left to buy the Ford dealership in Eveleth. The partnership lasted just a short time and in the early 1930's the dealership became Lundgren Motors. Axel Lundgren and his brother-in-law, Stanley Strom, were the active principals. Axel was the sole owner from 1942 until his death in 1955. Lee Lundgren, Axel's son, then took over as President and was the sole active principal until 1990 when his daughter, Lee Anne Lundgren, joined the dealership. Lee's son, Bruce Lundgren joined the Lundgren family team in 1996. Today, Lee Anne's children, Laura Hughes and Bryan Brown, are also active in the dealership.

Lundgren Motors has always been located in Eveleth; first at the bottom of Jones Street and Douglas Avenue, the present site of a parking lot. From there the business moved to the corner of Fayal Road and Grant Avenue and occupied the first floor of the building that is now the LaSalle Apartments. The next location was at the corner of Adams Avenue and Fayal Road, the current S&S Garage location. All of these moves took place in the early 1930's. In about 1937, Lundgren's moved to a nearly new, two-story building at 413-415 Grant Avenue. Sales and service continued there through 1964. The body shop was housed there through the 1970's. In 1964, the facility at 900 Old Highway 53 was built for a now unheard of price of $69,500. The original facility has undergone four expansions and has doubled in size. Lundgren's is very excited to break ground on a premier Ford Trustmark facility in 2017.
