Van Campen then active in the business was approved by Chrysler Motor Corporation to become the New Dealer.  Charles Van Campen (no middle initial) operated the dealership from October 30, 1954 until January 1, 1991.  At that time Chrysler Corporation approved the franchise be changed to two of Charles Van Campen sons, James C.
