Time for a T Bucket Snowmobile!

Time for a T Bucket Snowmobile!

It’s pretty amazing to think that Model T’s have been made into snowmobiles for well over 100 years now.  The Snowmobile T all started in 1913 when an Ossipee, New Hampshire Ford dealer named Virgil White began experimenting with putting front skis and rear chains on his car for driving safely in heavy snow. By 1917 he received a patent for his final design, and by the winter of 1922 he was selling the kits exclusively through Ford dealerships. Over the years there were many variations in wood and metal front skis, either attached to the front wheels or just replacing them at the front axle. Out back there was two, four, and even six-wheel-drive wheels with tank tracks for maximum grip. Maybe its time to build a hot rod phaeton or roadster version for yourself this winter?
