A Little About Our History 

Lapeyrouse Motors was founded over 85 years ago, in the midst of the Great Depression, by J.P. and Elma Lapeyrouse. Originally home to only a few cars and a few employees, the dealership has grown to 7 acres with a staff of more than 20 at a facility in downtown Jeanerette Louisiana. J.P. Lapeyrouse, Sr. came to Jeanerette from Montegut, La. with the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers to assist in the dredging of the Bayou Teche in the wake of the flood of 1927. After moving to Jeanerette, he met his future wife Elma Bergeron, whose background in accounting complemented his background in mechanics. The first new car sold was a 1934 Chrysler Deluxe Sedan for $970. Lapeyrouse Motors has prospered and persevered through the years thanks to many greatly appreciated customers and loyal employees. The dealership celebrated its 85th anniversary in February of 2019, and looks forward to the opportunity to serve South Louisiana in the future. 

The youngest of J.P. and Elma's four children, John P. Lapeyrouse, his wife Camille, and their children David Lapeyrouse, Michael Lapeyrouse, and Jeanne Lapeyrouse Clement are current owners of the dealership. Lapeyrouse Motors is a franchised dealer for Chevrolet,  Ram, Jeep, Dodge and Chrysler. The dealership also offers pre-owned vehicles, as well as service and parts/body and paint repair.
