Community-Minded Innovative Problem Solvers Who Exceed Customer Expectations With Honesty & Integrity

Our Story

Our Beginning In The Car Business Is Not Typical But, Neither Are We…

Marlow Motor Company in 1957The history of the Marlow Automotive Group starts back in 1947 – As automobile history buffs know, car manufacturing slowed down to a near halt in the mid-1940s, as factories were converted to the war effort to make ammunition. As you might expect, when automobile production resumed at the war’s end, the demand for consumer automobiles far exceeded the supply. And, then came the wait. Customers looking to buy cars were assigned a number and took delivery of the vehicle car by car as they rolled off the assembly line and into the dealerships. As you might expect, those were some wild days in the car business, where folks would do just about anything to lessen the wait, move up in the line, and take home a car. Bribery and other shenanigans were commonplace as people tried to “bump” their way up in the line.

But, Here’s Where Our Story Takes A Turn…

75 Acts of Kindness

In 2023 We Celebrated 75 Years Of Serving Our Community

In 2023, we celebrated the 75th anniversary of the Marlow Auto Group. What a great 75 years it has been! Our story started in 1947 when, following a post-WWII car shortage, Guy Marlow decided that by opening a car dealership, he could get a car for his own family and help other families get cars, too. Since that time, our roots in the community have been strong, and the emphasis on community service continues to be reflected in our Core Values in our Winchester, Front Royal, and Luray dealerships. With that in mind, we chose to celebrate our 75th Anniversary by committing to doing 75 Acts of Kindness in the community in the month of July 2023. The math is simple—three locations and 25 days equals 75 Acts—but the challenge was enormous!

Some Of Our Acts Were Simple! Some Of Our Acts Required A Lot Of Effort! All Of Them Were Important!
