There is one of those in the truck museum about 20 miles north of Sacramento apparently it was used to deliver the mail to Reno in the early days. It was the only thing that could negotiate the deep snow over the hill.

My dad and I built this snow machine prior to snowmobiles coming on the scene. He used it for ice fishing on Houghton Lake, Michigan. Had a Wisconsin v-4 engine coupled to a Chevy tranny. It was steered via individual brakes to each rear wheel.

I wonder if a old Chrysler engineer worked for Ford at one time.....

Made in the 60's, powered by a 225 Slant Six

Wow!! I'm not gonna lie, I've only seen the pictures of these things and "nimble" is not a word I imagined applying.

That thing works GREAT! I can see it might kind of tear up the ground if you just ran it on regular grass. But snow, mud, ice, whatever, no problem.

Would one float? If you just ran it on water?

My next question was "Well that's great but can it pull anything?" and BAM! It pulls those huge logs (20 tons) along like it's no big deal. Obviously, even today, EVERYBODY needs one of these. I will absolutely HAVE to get one.

Here's a Fordson version c. 1926 or 29 depending on which posted video you believe.

There's another video of a Model T Touring converted to screw drive but I can't find it at the moment. It was posted here before.
