The Payton Family has been in the car business for over four decades and a member of the Clinton business community for the past ten years. The Payton’s 45 year journey in the auto sales began in 1972 when O.L. Payton opened their first location on Highway 25 B in Heber Springs. Over the years the Payton family has grown the modest business into regional power. From their used car auction in Beebe that O.L. purchased in ‘81 to the New Chevy Dealer in Heber that complements their original location Payton Select across the street to our local Dodge Dealer. Through all four locations the Payton family is moving over a thousand units a month allowing them to provide some of the best deals around and with access to the auto auction your trade in’s are always welcome.


Payton Dodge Chrysler Ram Jeep opened in Clinton in 2007 when they purchased Davis Motor Company from the late L.J. Davis and as the story is told L.J. took about two weeks off and then was back to work selling cars where he had spent so many days. Their downtown location originally built by Roy Dean Dempsey in 1978 as a Dodge Dealership served the Payton Auto well but when the Payton family had an opportunity to relocate to their current location at 2799 Highway 65 S in the old home of the Ford Dealership the move was made and a new chapter began.
