Learn More About Hilbish Ford

Welcome to Hilbish Ford, your friendly neighborhood Ford store serving the Cabarrus County, Kannapolis City, and Rowan County communities. 

Our Beginnings

Fredrick G. “Buddy” Hilbish served as a Navy officer in the Southwest Pacific Theater in World War II. After returning from over-seas, Hilbish earned his degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Virginia, as well as graduating from Harvard Business School. He then went on to work at a Ford dealership in Trenton, New Jersey with his sights set on owning his own dealership before he turned 30. When Yoos Motor Company went up for sale in 1954, Mr. Hilbish moved to Kannapolis, NC and achieved his goal a few months prior to his 30th birthday.

Since then, Hilbish Ford has taken pride in being more than just a dealership; we are your trusted automotive partners, dedicated to providing an exceptional and transparent car-buying and servicing experience.

Our Commitment to Transparency

We understand that purchasing a vehicle is a significant decision, which is why we believe in transparent “Straight Talk” pricing. At Hilbish Ford, you can expect straightforward and honest pricing with no hidden fees. Our commitment to transparency ensures that you receive the best value for your investment without any surprises.

Community Involvement

As a locally-owned and operated dealership, we are deeply rooted in the community we serve. Giving back to the neighborhoods that have supported us over the years is a top priority for us. We proudly sponsor the Teacher of the Month program, recognizing the dedicated educators in Cabarrus County and Kannapolis City schools who shape the future of our communities. Additionally, Hilbish Ford takes great pride in its community service efforts, which include supporting veterans' promotions with the Kannapolis Cannon Ballers, hosting free concerts in the parks, and organizing various non-profit and community-wide events at the dealership throughout the year. Among our most cherished annual events is the celebration lunch held every November to honor and appreciate First Responders.
