I have found only sketchy information on SS CAPE SPEAR. She was a class C-1B cargo ship constructed by the Consolidated Steel Corp., Wilmington, California, and was completed and delivered in November 1944. Presumably her original owner was the U.S. Maritime Commission. She was sold to a private shipping company in 1948 and was scrapped in 1971. See http://www.shipbuildinghistory.com/shipyards/emergencylarge/consolidatedwilmington.htm and scroll to hull number 758. There is no information on where she was scrapped.
