Donald Ellis sent this photo along some time ago with the following note: “I remember Bill Loch’s used car lot located on N.W. Fourth Street in Oklahoma City, OK. They always had some interesting cars.” Donald is correct about that, as it looked as though Loch worked hard on having eye-catching cars on the lot, which are the ones that sell quickly. The photo is dated May 1948, and the majority of the vehicles appear to be late-model cars.
The Ford hi-boy roadster at the front of the second row from the left has a 1930 or ’31 body. It appears to sport a flat head Ford V-8, custom upholstery, and later wheels with hubcaps and is an A-V-8 unless the Model “A” Ford body was installed on a 1932 chassis. The white 1933 or ’34 Ford three-window coupe is also interesting.
