George C. Chase operated a Ford dealership in Warner, New Hampshire, a small town a little over twenty miles northwest of Concord, the State Capitol. Chase was also a dealer for Virgil D. White’s Model “T” Ford Snowmobile kits, which were manufactured in West Ossipee at his Ford agency. The photo above shows a narrow-track machine with a raised front end and the skis attached to the tires instead of using a spindle mount type of ski.
Dr. Lloyd Cogswell took a different approach as seen below, and used a pair of skis or old sleigh runners that cradled the front wheels and attached directly to them. In the rear he merely used tire chains for traction instead of tracks. The headlamps on his rig appear to be Gray & Davis side lamps. Photos courtesy of the Warner Historical Society via Violette.
