For an Arkansas tie, check out the 1967 Cadillac Fleetwood Seventy-Five. Bearing a license tag with his initials “WR”, this was the personal car of Winthrop Rockefeller and was kept at his home on Petit Jean Mountain. Keep an eye out for the sterling silver bull on the hood of the car—a symbol of the Santa Gertrudis breed of cattle his Winrock Farms is famous for.
Another Arkansas tie are cars from the Climber Motor Corporation, which was Arkansas’s only automobile manufacturer ( they opened their doors in Little Rock in 1919 and closed production in 1924). The company was known for producing durable cars that could handle the rough roads of the state of the time. The museum, which is located at 8 Jones Lane, is now home to the only two Climber cars known to exist in the world.
This is just a few of the many cars you can see there. If you want to check out the cars sometime, the museum is open daily from 10-5 . For more information call 501-727-5427 or visit musuemofautos.com. The museum is on the same road that leads to Petit Jean State Park.
