Ask the Curator: Tell me more about Ford’s “Chuckwagon”!
August 14, 2019 @ 7:30 am - 8:00 am EDT
Join Automotive Curator, James Moss, as he provides detailed information on one of the museums most interesting vehicles. This Model T Roadster was modified for camping trips and features an aluminum covered pine box for transporting camping supplies such as linens and utensils in addition to food. The inline four cylinder, twenty horsepower engine could reach a top speed of 45 miles per hour. Another unique feature is the water faucet located along the vehicle’s right side. Ford converted two Model T gas tanks into storage containers to hold fresh water. By 1931, the vehicle was owned by Greenfield Village.
