UNDATED -- Chrysler LLC has told a bankruptcy court it plans to eliminate 789 of its dealers, including 12 from Oklahoma. 

An exhibit filed Thursday in its bankruptcy court case in New York names the dealerships.   

Dealers on the list would not necessarily be forced to close, but would be forced to give up some or all of the brands they currently sell. 


Here are the Oklahoma dealers and the brands they would lose:

Crossroads Superstore, Atoka:  Chrysler, Dodge, Dodge Truck and Jeep

Oakley Pontiac-Buick, Bartlesville:  Jeep

McKinsey Motor Company, Clinton:  Chrysler, Dodge, Dodge Truck and Jeep

John Thomas Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep, Cordell:  Chrysler, Dodge, Dodge Truck and Jeep

Reynolds Autogroup, Durant:  Chrysler, Dodge, Dodge Truck and Jeep

Janzen Jeep, Enid:  Jeep

Jensen's, Fairview:  Chrysler, Dodge, Dodge Truck and Jeep

Eddie Cordes Jeep-Eagle-Dodge, Lawton:  Jeep, Dodge and Dodge Truck

Milo Gordon Chrysler, Lawton:  Jeep

Williams Chevrolet-Pontiac, Stigler:  Chrysler, Dodge, Dodge Truck and Jeep

Fenton Motors, Stillwater:  Chrysler, Dodge and Dodge Truck

Wilson Chevrolet, Stillwater:  Jeep


The dealers likely will have a right to appeal to get off the list. 

The move could cost their communities jobs and tax revenue.
