Truck Convertible Into Tractor (Jan, 1933)

Truck Convertible Into Tractor

IDEAL for negotiating muddy roads is a new auto-car which is quickly convertible into a caterpillar tractor. Ordinarily the caterpillar treads hook to the rear of the car and are carried as extra baggage. When the truck is to be made ready to traverse muddy terrain or do duty in the fields the rear of the truck is jacked! up and the treads set in place. A special mechanism shifts the power transmission to the caterpillar.

The machine is found ideal for farms where caterpillar tractors cannot be afforded. When plowing is to be done, as well as when some light hauling is necessary, the truck is ready for duty on an instant’s notice.

    Hey! Thats the same tracked vehicle Fred Astaire drove in the Rankin-Bass special “Santa Claus is Coming to Town”.
