Thanks to the creative oversight of Automotive Curator Jim Moss, Registrar Matt Andres and a very talented group of volunteers, the pieces and parts of the replica Henry Ford 1904 Quadricycle are being produced and will be ready for assembly (like the crank shaft below). Although this sounds easy, it really isn’t because the machinists, mechanics and engineers are building the Quadricycle from scratch in machine shops throughout the region.
Pictured is part of the crank shaft and the volunteer who is creating this in his own shop, Walter Newell. The group expects to have the Quadricycle finished before the end of 2016. Contact Registrar Matt Andres in the Curatorial Department if you would like to join the group which meets monthly.
