This is an actual video of Henry Ford and his "snow tractor". It is very interesting.

Strange, but that clip looks more like an Armstead Snow Motor, a vehicle
created by using the motor and chassis of a Fordson (a model name of Ford
Motor Company) and adding the screw rotors. True, it's more Ford than
anything else, but I really doubt that the video shows Henry Ford driving
the Armstead vehicle. I mean, do you think Henry Ford would ever use a
Chevrolet body to demo a concept?
