The original Norris Ford, pictured above, was founded in 1917 by Mr. George R. Norris. The building is currently the Pinland Bowling center on Dundalk Avenue. If you look closely, you can see the gas pumps outside the front door in this old photo.
Mr. George Norris (1891-1960) maintained his business and home in Dundalk. His initial investment in Norris Ford came from hauling supplies during World War I. Mr. Norris traveled to Detroit to meet with Henry Ford in person in order to acquire the Ford franchise. In his later years, he was an avid sportsman, as pictured above.
Norris Ford's second location was on the corner of Dundalk Avenue and Willow Spring Road until 1966. This location is now a McDonald's.
Ground breaking for the current location was in 1965. Pictured are Norris Cook (VP), Blair Haney (used car manager), Ellsworth Decourse (builder), Landy Cook (president), Dave Sides (general manager) and Smith (builder).

The gentleman we dealt with at Norris Ford was very nice. I had a concern right after we purchased the car - we had taken the vehicle up 95 a ways in the rain and we heard what we thought was wind noise in the vehicle. He took my call, helped me, gave me advice and we hung up. He then checked with someone else about the issue and called me back. I felt like he really wanted me to be happy even after we purchased the vehicle. I also felt like he was genuinely concerned about the issue and went the extra steps to make sure. In the end, the issue resolved itself and there was not a problem. The next time we took that same trip there was no wind noise so we concluded it was because it was a very windy night with heavy rain and the noise perhaps was from the tires against the wet roads. I will definitely return to Norris Ford for future vehicle purchases and would recommend Norris Ford to friends and family.

The service tecs at the front were first class. So were the cashiers. I didn't meet the mechanic, but the work on my vehicle was outstanding. I have purchased both a new and used unit from Norris Ford this year and have been very satisfied with the entire process.
