Lane Victory Drive-By

Sunday’s drive in the Daytona Cobra Coupe took me to the Victory ship, Lane Victory, in the Port of Los Angeles, San Pedro. Check it out!

The SS Lane Victory is an American Victory-class cargo ship used in World War II, the Korean War, and Vietnam War. Lane Victory was built in Los Angeles by the California Shipbuilding Corporation (Calship) and launched on May 31, 1945. On her first voyage, June 27, 1945, Lane Victory carried war supplies in the Pacific.

I found it interesting to learn that the Calship shipyard was created at Terminal Island in Los Angeles, California, United States as part of America's massive shipbuilding effort of World War II. So that means that the Lane Victory is, nearly, back home where she was built.

SS Lane Victory is located at Berth 49, San Pedro, California, 90733. The Gangway Phone is 310-519-9188. The Ship is open every day from 9 am to 4 pm for self-guided tours. The fee at the gangway is $7 for Adults, $3 for Children 5 to 14.
