Arkansas’s only automobile manufacturer, the Climber Motor Corporation, closed. The Climber Motor Corporation produced cars and trucks intended to cope with Arkansas’s primitive road system better than previous modes of transportation. Today, the Climber Motor Corporation factory building remains in Little Rock (Pulaski County) and is currently the headquarters of Creative Engineering/Micro Grinding. The significance of the building was recognized with its nomination to the National Register of Historic Places in 2005. In addition, two Climbers are known to exist, both located at the Museum of Automobiles outside Morrilton (Conway County).
