TITLE   Glover Johns Ford, or Roy Murray Ford Dealer
DESCRIPTION   Interior view of an automobile dealership in Corpus Christi, Texas. This business was identified in 1975 as Glover Johns Ford. Later research in the 1980s identified the business as Roy Murray Ford Dealer, located at 220-24 North Chaparral Street. A man in a white shirt and dark tie stands behind a display counter. Another man in a dark business suit, Arthur Isle, stands in front of the counter next to an automobile. Posted on the front counter are signs announcing "Radio is here" and "Only $44.50 installed." Radios were not standard equipment at this time; they were bought as accessories and attached to the dashboard.
