Is anyone familiar with the Livingood four wheel drive conversion? Or any other 4x4 conversions? I remembered reading a magazine article at least 10 years ago about one. I only moments ago did a bing search for "model T 4x4" and a Four Wheeler online article came up. Did others build such a thing? I guess this was a niche market?
Anyone have one, or seen one, or know somebody with one? Thanks.
Franklin - I'm not too good at this computer stuff, but Livingood has been covered in this forum in years past. The word Livingood (if I spelled it correctly) should bring up quite a lot of Livingood info,....hope this helps,.....harold
Oops,..I meant to say,....entered in "keyword search"
Bob McDonald has one. Here is a recent thread:
Check with Tom at Antique Auto in Spokane, Wa. He also has a U Tube video. Search for 1917X.
Here's some help:
Near the end is Pictures of Tom's Livingood going together.
Here's some of the info. on the one I have, I got mine in 2002 and it seams to work well.
If you would like more info.just let me know or contact them ( there going on the third generation making them). To give an idea of price I think they run around $4500.00 with shipping at that time. I painted mine green.
If you are interested in owning one I have a complete kit all new and never installed that needs a new home. It looks just like the one Bob has.
Thanks everyone for the prompt replies. Very informative. Very interesting Model T accessory. I'd love to see one!
...probably should work on getting a T first.
PS - Does the installer have to modify the front spring, or does a special spring come with it?
The special front spring comes with it. Also the shortened rear drive shaft and rear radius rods. It is more or less a "bolt in"!
Wouldn't that make the T have four wheel brakes? :-) :-) :-p
One of the selling points back in 1923,
'does not skid when you apply the brakes'
