The Balboa Motor Vehicle Corp.
Fullerton, CA

The Balboa was a California built American Automobile with a factory in Fullerton. The Balboa Motor Vehicle Corp. was formed in 1925 but the Balboa never went in serious production. So very few were made.

The 1925 Balboas had distinctive lines and were ahead of their time in general appearance.
