The Ford Motor Company gave the Model “T” Ford the advertising slogan – The Universal Car. And this photo of a right hand drive Ford made either in Canada for export, or the United Kingdom proves it, because this one can walk.
Directly under the driver appears to be a right angle drive that attaches to the back of the Ford power plant. Following that a chain drives the large sprocket visible just in front of the legs. Behind it must be a slow-turning mechanism that actuates the legs via the round connecting rods. The rods can be seen attached to a pivot at the bottom where the feet attach.
Surly someone must know something about this car. Is it real, a World War I design exercise, or is it a spoof? The photo was posted by Danny Weil at the Antique Motorcycle Club of America.
