1929 FORD MODEL A SNOW BIRD.jpg


Equipped with an Arps Snow Bird conversion designed and manufactured by B.P. Arps Company of Wisconsin. The "Snow Bird" was originally used by the New York Guard and later by a rural mail carrier for winter duty through heavy snow. It uses caterpillar style tracks that are driven by 2 sets of rear wheels encompassing the rear tire and two leaf sprung auxiliary wheels on each side. The front wheels have long skies mounted to them. A Model A "Snow Bird" was utilized as part of Admiral Byrds' 1931 Antarctic expedition. This is a rare and extraordinary piece of Americana that is difficult to replicate.
