Eddie Gilstrap Motors is a small hometown Ford Dealership that opened its doors in 1937 and is currently owned and ran by the Motsinger Family.


We support our local community not only with their car shopping needs, but the youth of our County, giving annual scholarships to a deserving student from each local school corporation. We also sponsor the ARCA Fall Classic and the ARCA Spring race here at our local Salem Speedway, right here in Salem, Indiana. We are proud recipients of the 2016 President's Award that very few Ford dealers have the honor of being awarded. 


Eddie Gilstrap Motors would love to assist you with your next New or Used vehicle! Stop by for a Ford test drive. After all, thats really the best way to get to know a vehicle. And you can get to know us better, too. We are the Salem Ford Dealership that is family owned and operated by the Motsinger family. We believe in a no-pressure sales environment. Our service department offers complimentary local shuttle service. There's no better place to get your new vehicle. Let us prove it.
