Before the Ford plant in Pico Rivera, there was a Ford assembly plant in Commerce the L.A.J. Ry. It closed when they built the Pico Rivera plant, but I don't know when it opened.

These 1958 photos just make it into the group's era. Captions state the engines are being unloaded at a Lincoln-Mercury plant. The source of the photos was Merge Studios in Los Angeles so the location probably is Southern California.




Ford operated a plant in Pico Rivera (1957-1980), a suburb southeast of Los Angeles, served by the Santa Fe. I am unaware of another Ford plant in the area other than Ford's Long Beach plant, which closed in 1959.
