Manufactured in 1937 by the Atlas Imperial Engine Company, Oakland, California.
Originally the powerhouse for a garbage scow during World War II, the Museum’s Atlas Imperial engine was most recently used on the 120-ft. bait boat “The Rival” owned and operated by Everingham Brothers Bait Company in San Diego, California.
Everingham Brothers generously donated the Atlas to AGSEM in December 2011. Our Gas Engine Row team members have since donated countless hours restoring the Atlas to working condition.
AGSEM is proud to express its gratitude for the dedication of the Atlas restoration team members:
- Jim Kirkes
- Paul Guilliams
- Chet Huffman
- Gil Stuart
- Leo Zugner
