Dashing Through the Snow

Model T Snowmobile flew over snow-covered roads

Left: Skis mounted on the front spindles of Scott McWilliams’ Model T give a wider front stance. A conveyor-type belting with cleats is riveted on the outside of the tracks; “guide” segments on the inside keep the track on the wheel. Right: The tracks on Bill Clough’s Snowmobile are made of chain sidewalls with formed metal cleats to keep the tracks on the tires. Note the stabilizer rods mounted on the frame to keep tension on the dead axle and hold it in line.
