First car to reach the top of Sierra Nevada

First car to reach the top of Sierra Nevada

by Pablo Lopez Chaves - Number of replies: 3

Module 2 begins exploring how human societies have created fruitful ways of exploiting Sierra Nevada by paying attention to the first condition: how to get to these mountains. In capsule 2.1 you’ll find three key characters - Duke San Pedro de Galatino, MP Natalia Rivas and engineer Juan José Santa Cruz - whose entrepreneurship and expertise would leave an indelible mark: a roadway into the summits. Santa Cruz would reach Veleta’s top on Sept. the 15th, 1935. 

Taking a step further, could you find who drove the car and which model and make was it?

Good evening, the person who drove the car was his daughter Teresa Santa Cruz, but I don't know nothing about the car. I don't find this information.
Can you say me?
It was interesting to read more about Juan José Santa Cruz.
