Daryl Gushee's 1928 Ford Snowbird ConversionThis is a featured page

This is a 1928 model A Ford with a rare Snowbird conversion. I purchased it from George Shaaf in September 2007. This is a beautiful snowmobile and runs as good as it ever did.
I do not know the history behind it but maybe someone will recognize it and can tell me more.

Part of the conversion is removal of the fenders and cutting the bottom of the doors to allow track clearance.
The bogie assembly is pretty much a permanent part once on the Ford. It takes a lot of work to convert to and from track or tire drive.

The front axle spindles are converted to also hold the skis.
When you want the ski steerage you simply pin them on and remove the front tires.
