If you’ve never been to Lancaster Pennsylvania, you should. It’s a lovely place, with an historic downtown, plenty of great restaurants, B&Bs, all set in the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch country. But in our opinion the most compelling reason to visit Lancaster Pennsylvania is Lime Street Carriage.
The company operates out of a refurbished Packard dealership, but these days they sell Jeeps. Beautiful Jeeps. Some restored, some original, jeeps from that wonderful era when you could plough a field, saw lumber, go on hunting expeditions, head to the beach; do just about anything you wanted with a little four-wheel drive indestructible fun machine.
In business for a couple of years now, Bill Reiss and his partner cast their net for every conceivable type of historical jeep they could get their hands on. A ground-up restoration can cost many thousands, but the final product is better than new.
Their customer base is worldwide, with eager buyers in Michigan, the Carolinas, Hawaii, and Dubai.
The guys at Lime Street Carriage also produce parts. They’re involved in the manufacture of some 150 different replacement parts. The fact that they have sold well over a thousand front bumpers alone is ample evidence of how many folks out there are toiling away to get their own little indomitable dream back on, (or is it off?) the road.
