At the end of WWII, and after losing his political job because of a party change, Joseph Dockery, Sr., entrepreneur at heart, invested his life savings to start his first dealership.

1948 - Jericho Motors Lincoln Mercury

While pursuing Lincoln Mercury as his next venture, the manufacturer insisted Joe Sr. have a partner and suggested Peter Sullivan. His comfort level grew stronger knowing that Sullivan had married into the McDonald Family of Wall Street - also related by marriage to a little known entrepreneur named Henry Ford.
