About Marlow Ford
Established in 1915, Luray Motor Company has a rich history. However, in November 2000, a pivotal moment occurred when John Marlow acquired the company. This marked the transition to its new identity, Luray Ford. Then, in August 2002, a notable step was taken as the land on US Highway 211 was procured. This acquisition paved the way for the construction of a modern facility, giving rise to Marlow Ford. This transformative shift marked a significant development in the trajectory of the Marlow Automotive Group, as Marlow Ford became the esteemed third dealership within the group’s portfolio.
