Sheehy Auto Stores began in 1965 as a small, suburban, family-owned Ford dealership just off the brand new Washington, D.C. Beltway. Because of customer response to their innovative approaches, Sheehy was immediately successful and by 1975 had become the largest Ford dealership in the country. Today, the company is still primarily family-owned and has grown to more than $1 billion in sales with more than 30,000 vehicle sales per year. Sheehy's 18 locations and 20 import and domestic brands serve customers in the Baltimore, Annapolis, Richmond and Washington, D.C. metropolitan areas.
