About Norris Ford


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).
