Fordson Snow Motor, 1929

Posted on Feb 1, 2013 in History, Transportation

This is a promotional reel for a concept snow vehicle from 1929. It’s kind of mesmerizing and fascinating to watch the lateral rotation of the pontoons translate to forward propulsion via such a simple surface treatment. The reel is long, and the music is an odd choice, but it demonstrates a pretty interesting and capable means for snow and ice transport. It’s also a great hack of existing technology.
