Ford Model T Half engine

1917 Model T driving around in several feet of snow. This Model T has an accessory Livingood four-wheel-drive attachment, otherwise it is stock. It is dressed up to look like a WWI vehicle. Jesse Livingood is sometimes credited with inventing 4WD. His first patent was issued in 1912. He started selling conversion units in 1914. There is no evidence that the US government used 4WD T's in WWI, that I can find.

Filmed at Norgesløpet 2008 in Hamar, Norway. It sure is an American car from the 1930's but I don't know which brand it is. The cars all looked the same back than, too. It is an impressive task to start it by muscle power, though.
