COMMENTSSHARE YOUR THOUGHTS Ontario couple raffling their prized Model T to cover friend’s medical billThis snowmobile conversion was invented by Virgil White, a Ford dealer in New Hampshire, who built his first in 1913 and patented it four years later. The kit included skis made of wood and metal, a dual-wheel rear axle from a Ford TT truck, and tracks for the wheels.White sold the kits through Ford dealers, starting in 1922. The kit was $400, or you could buy a converted car for $750. There weren’t a lot of roads at the time outside of cities, and they were seldom if ever plowed, so the Snowmobiles were popular with doctors and mail-carriers.The car’s price reflects the quality of its restoration and its rarity. White only sold about 70 units in 1923, and shortly afterwards sold the manufacturing rights and then the patents to a farm equipment manufacturer. It made about 3,300 units a year until it closed in 1929. Trending Videos ‹ Previous Next ›last_img read more
