1896 Ford Quadricycle Design Pattern
NEW! Henry Ford developed a more practical car and put it into mass production. And it was well received. He blended the design of a horse drawn buckboard from the old west with four bicycle wheels and mass production of the 1889 Ford Quadricycle began. The automobile era was underway. The engine was installed behind the seat and the car was steered by moving a lever left or right. The two cylinder engine powered by ethanol reached a top speed of 20 miles per hour.
The plan package includes complete instructions along with dozens of photographs and drawings. All patterns are full size. Although a lathe would be helpful, the whole project can be made without a lathe. If desired, features can be added or simplify the project. Only basic shop tools are needed. A parts list is included. For intermediate to advanced woodworkers. Not for children's play but to use as a display piece.
