Ink Drawing of an old Coupe at Chitina, Alaska

During one of my explorations for forgotton vehicles along the backroads of the Wrangell-St. Elias region of Alaska I found this relic stashed in the willows near Town Lake, Chitina, Alaska.  During the dense vegetation of summer this old car is virtually invisible, but during spring break-up it sat proudly exposed in its nest of branches and tangled weeds.  I can only imagine how it was used during the mining days when this region was a bustling hub for miners and their families during the days of the Copper River & Northwestern Railway.

  1. GAIL, I THINK THAT THIS IS A 1931-32 FORD COUPE.NOT POSITIVE.

  2. Lennie,
    That’s the same conclusion I reached from my internet research. So much of the vehicle is missing it is hard to tell, but the classic lines of the cab are unmistakable. Thanks a bunch.
