Long Description:
The 26,000-square foot business reflected the success of its president Frank C. O’Reilly, who since opening a Chevrolet dealership in 1924 had sold 2,436 new and 4,834 used cars — setting a national record for car sales. To build his new business, O’Reilly selected the 400 block of North Sixth Avenue, the heart of Tucson’s auto row and a vital stretch of US 80 and the Old Spanish Trail. The building now houses a furniture design studio, one of several design and art studios situated in old auto-related businesses along North Sixth. From: Drive the Old Spanish Trail
