Check out "The Adventurer," that we posted on TheOldMotor.com today. It is an incredible early motorhome constructed on a circa 1913-'14 Ford chassis equipped with a chain-driven truck conversion. Can anyone ID the maker of the truck conversion?

It is fitted w/a aftermarket radiator, hood and a wishbone brace.

The article says it cruised at 13 MPH. Eyeballing the chain drive gears, it looks about right based on the apparent ratio. I guess the driver could point it in the desired direction then go to the kitchen and make him/herself a sandwich. :-)
