Model T Engine A Wooden Airplane Propeller Set Of Sleigh Runners Used For Bombardier, Joseph Armand Bombardier Age 15: Model T engine, a wooden airplane propeller and set of sleigh runners used for Bombardier – In 1922 Quebec, a 15-year-old farm boy named Joseph-Armand Bombardier began tinkering with a Model T engine, a wooden airplane propeller and a beat-up set of sleigh runners.
It was primitive and hideous. But during the next 20 years, Bombardier designed and built treaded snow vehicles that were used as logging machines, transports for mining prospectors, military ambulances for winter battlefields and conveyances for rural doctors.
These machines were too cumbersome and expensive for the average buyer. Then, in 1959, Bombardier’s small factory garage in Valcourt began to turn out a new, lightweight, highly maneuverable and inexpensive vehicle.
He christened it the Ski-Dog. A printing accident would give it a new name, the Ski-Doo. And the rest is history.
By most accounts, the brightly painted snow vehicle was the first mass-produced recreational snowmobile.
