The Fox air cooled 50 horsepower engine housed six cylinders with aluminum pistons, overhead cam and valves. Manufacturing trends at the time clearly favored water cooled engines. However, the Fox and Franklin used the more mechanically complex air cooling system. Only sporting and luxury automobiles such as Dusenburg, Stutz, and Marmon used overhead cams and valves. The Fox automobile and its large six cylinder water cooled engine was a favorite among bootleggers.
