    Description

    Harley-Davidson LR-64 Rocket Engine as Used in the AQM-37 Jayhawk Supersonic Target Drone, with Display Base. A rocket engine assembly with overall dimensions of 21" x 10" x 5", mounted on a 16" x 6" wooden base for display. Originally designed by Rocketdyne, Harley-Davidson has manufactured and supplied these to the U.S. Navy since the early 1960s to power target drones used to simulate inbound ICBMs for fleet shoot-down exercises. While not related directly to the manned Space program, this has a lot of display appeal and would certainly be a great item for a Harley motorcycle aficionado. Missing various caps and Booster knob. Also missing bottom booster. Overall fine.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
