The Covert family is a pioneer in the automotive business. Over 100 years ago, Frank M. Covert Sr. opened the family’s very first automotive dealership in Central Texas. Each successive generation enthusiastically entered the family business, and now Covert Ford of Hutto is run by the fourth and fifth generations.
In 1909, Frank M. Covert, Sr., a real estate and insurance businessman opened the first automobile dealership in Central Texas. Three years later, his son, Clarence Covert, Sr., joined him to form the Austin Buick Sales Company, which became the foundation for Covert Buick, Inc., the oldest Buick dealership in Texas today.
Frank M. Covert Sr. was succeeded in the business by his two sons, Frank Covert Jr. and Clarence Covert Sr. Frank Covert, Jr. had one son, Dr. Frank M. Covert III, who chose not to join the family business and instead became a surgeon. He is now retired from the practice of medicine and resides in Austin. Clarence Covert, Sr. had three sons, Dan Covert, Clarence Covert, Jr. and George H. Covert, all of whom became active in the business between 1936 and 1981 as third-generation owners.
The Central Texas dealerships are currently operated by our generation of Coverts - Rox, Duke and Danay Covert, allbeing the sons of Dan Covert. Presently, Jennie Covert Stewart, Anne Covert Estes, Courtney Covert Elliott, Kacy Covert Tolleson, Kimberly Covert Robinson, Kenny Covert, Chance Covert, Corey Covert, Dan Covert Jr, Philip Robinson, Brad Elliott have joined in the operation of the dealership serving Central Texas with sales and service - Covert Cadillac in Austin; Covert Buick GMC in Austin; Covert Ford Lincoln in Austin; Covert Ford of Hutto; Covert Chevrolet of Hutto, and Covert Chevrolet Buick, GMC in Bastrop.
Our commitment extends beyond the car buyer to the community as a whole. The Covert family generously donated the land at Mt. Bonnell to serve as a public park. They also donated the home that now serves as the headquarters for the Texas Historical Commission. Our dealership has become a success thanks to the good people in the area, and we do everything possible to give back. Besides its long tradition of support for local charitable organizations, the Covert family has also contributed to the permanent heritage of the Austin community by donating the land at Mt. Bonnell to Travis County in 1938 as a park to be enjoyed by citizens and visitors alike. The Covert family also played an important role in restoring the Carrington/Covert House, a large limestone home where the family resided from 1903 to 1936, located at 1511 Colorado Street in Austin. This restored home currently serves as headquarters for the Texas Historical Commission.
