Founder, Vic Bailey Jr, worked his way up in the automotive business from selling cars to managing a car lot in Greenville, South Carolina to becoming an owner of a dealership in downtown Spartanburg in 1955 to starting his own automotive group in 1969 with the opening of Vic Bailey Lincoln Mercury.
Vic Bailey Automotive is rich in history. The Lincoln dealership is the oldest Lincoln dealership in South Carolina, and the Ford governmental fleet department continues to be one of the leading volume sellers in the United States. Seven members of the Bailey family work full-time for the company.
The company values its customers, its employees, and the local community.
