1930 Ford Model A Snowmobile
Engine no. A4_525188

A number of conversions existed to alter a Ford car into a commercial vehicle. Kits could make them into tractors or fire equipment or even snowmobiles. Surprisingly popular in snowy regions, these conversions are most associated the Model T. Though much rarer, there were several companies offering Model A conversions. By adding Caterpillar type tracks to the rear drive and skis at the front you could make a surprisingly capable snow machine from a standard Ford.

This example is quite elaborate with its two additional axles to support the tracks. The ability to use the skis with the front wheels is also an uncommon feature. Clearly a well-built machine for serious use. It looks to have had a more recent utility back fitted but seems a largely original and unmodified machine. It is more than likely equipped with an accessory gear box to allow for the low gearing necessary to drive through the snow.

Today a hardy group of enthusiasts regularly use these Ford snowmobiles and they have proven to be great fun and very capable vehicles. This unusual and well-made example is rare survivor. It could be great fun to recommission and enjoy in some fresh snow.
