Was this the famous "Grapevine Hill" of "Hot Rod Lincoln" fame?

NOTE: Lincolns used gasoline that was shipped by FREIGHT CARS in the STEAM ERA.

...Still we were unable to go much faster that 4 MPH on the
Grapevine to Fort Tejon grade to Los Angeles. There was no air
conditioning so we pulled up the floor bords to get air in the cab.
Yeah, I know, we're way off topic here, but I can't resist adding to
Lindsay's account that I well remember driving up the Grapevine
