Orrin W. Fox’s used car lot was located at 2345 East Colorado Boulevard in Pasadena, California, when this promotional photo for Fox, dated by the source was taken in 1933. At that time due to the Great Depression, it was a buyers market, and Fox’s signage reflects that situation. The newest cars in the front row are a pair of 1933 Fords, and the oldest is an early Model “A” Ford Tudor.
Perhaps the most unique car in the line up is a semi-customized late Model “A” Roadster with aftermarket smaller diameter wire wheels with lock rings, an unusual spoke arrangement, and fitted with odd looking hubcaps. In addition, the windshield is raked further back than original, it is fully accessorized and has added pin-striping and bright metal trim strips on the rear fenders.
