1917X

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.

1925 Model T Ford at Work
A video I produced to celebrate my Dad's birthday this year, he would have been 88. He always enjoyed demonstrating the vintage iron in action. I am not quite the showman that he was but I am trying to carry on the tradition, using the skills I learned from a man that actually lived it, taught to me as an ordinary, everyday way of life. I hope you enjoy the video! Using a 1925 Model T Ford to haul firewood. The firewood is cut to length on a wood saw, or buzz saw, powered with a 1924 Model T Ford engine. My Dad built the model T from parts and pieces that he had in 1950 and used it as his hunting truck for many years. In the early 1970's we decided it should be a "restored" car. Our friend Ken, my Dad, and myself, changed things back to period correct, including wheels, top & upholstery, and new paint.
