This is, without a doubt, the best car related story that I have read, and to be it featuring a Patrol is even better. I highly recommend to any Patrol lover to read it. Slowly. The apreciation for yours will grow tenfold.

Thanks Dave for posting it. And the author of this amazing piece deserves a special thanks!

No kidding Esteban! I was wondering if the story just took my attention for some reason so glad you see it the same way.......for me, this is a great story at the level of the Simpson Crossing, Roy Rodgers Patrol whereabouts, Leslies interview with Mr. K....... viewtopic.php?f=22&t=441&p=1649&hilit=Mr+Katayama#p1649 ......big Patrol stories!
big, big, big!
Thanks to Timoun, dude you rock!

How can Roy Rogers Patrol be identified? He used to own a large ranch just south of Winslow, maybe it's here somewhere? :pray: :think: :pray:

A very nice read... and very impressive use of "junk parts" , a handfull of tools, and whole lot of innovation and ingenuity...

swapping in a V8 without access to a welder? I can't imagine.

There was (maybe still is) a Roy Rogers museum in Apple Valley, California, U.S.A. Although I have been to Apple Valley, I didn't visit the museum, but from what I read about it at the time, Mr. Rogers' Patrol was on display there.

The RR museum in Apple Valley closed many years ago... then it moved to Missouri, and it closed there in 2009.

The Roy Rogers Patrol is out there.... somewhere.

I would think it would be easy to spot if it ever surfaced, since it was painted that dark metallic green color... ???

Where did u get that it was dark "metallic green"? The one in his add in 64 is green but not metallic. No telling if that's the one they gave him or not. I would think that it was!

I don't know... it just looked metallic to me, especially the wheels


Might just be the photo color or lighting playing tricks

I could be wrong, but I seem to remember a photo of the RR Patrol being "Sea Foam Green."

That would be so awesome to actually see even a picture of the RR Patrol! :shock:

You can/will find the Roy Rogers Patrol by the vin number, that is likely the only way. I recall shortly before RMP&O went offline somebody had contacted the Rogers family and Roy's son had sent them some pics from the family album of the truck. I think he asked them if they had anything with the vin # on it and the reply was no. However, it should be able to be tracked down through DMV. Out there somewhere there is a record of the title or registration with the vin # on it and Roy's name or company or whatever should also be on that document. That solves the riddle. Is it still out there? who knows but without the vin # or some hard facts from the family we will never know.


Cheers
