Cortland S. Fox was born in 1904 and died in 1993, at the age of 89 in Newport Beach, California. Cort Fox was 42 years old when he opened his
dealership with Budge Boyle. He was 53 years old when this picture at left was taken. He was 68 when the dealership signage went from Cort Fox Ford to Castle Ford.
Cort said he sold the dealership in the 1960’s, but his name remained on the building until 1972.
Perhaps it was run by his son and grandson. See below for more information.
Cort has a son named Warren Cortland Fox. Warren also had a son named Warren Cortland Fox, but he prefers to go by the name W.C.
The automotive business still runs in the family. I have spoken to W.C. and he owns Fox Auto Consultants in Huntington Beach, California.
See the logo for his business shown below.
W.C. was fortunate enough to acquire many of the items from the Cort Fox Ford dealership in Hollywood.
