Default Yup...It WILL Turn-Over!

.

Ran across this interesting, yet insane rig while looking for something else. Looks like a V8-60 to me, and the rear wheel and brake cable suggests '37 or '38-ish. At about 5:05 in the video, the driver likely takes a dump in his 'proper' suit pants! Everyone needs one of these. Click the link! DD

The "Dohicky" on the outside of the big rear wheel looks like a centrifugal clutch to me (kinda like the kind we have on snowmobiles up here). Did you notice that it turns backwards when it is in reverse!

It has a 36 n later wide five rear wheel.
I’m thinking the doohickey is a brake.
Did you notice right near the end as it tips over they stop filming for a while?

I was thinking they needed one of those suicide knobs on the steering wheel. Then he tipped it over, I changed my mind.

I wonder what it will do in the quarter mile, might need a big slick on the back.

"Contraption" according to Webster, describes this machine pretty well.

A machine or device that appears strange or unnecessarily complicated,
and often badly made or unsafe

In the beginning he is driving it inside the engineering building which later became the museum.

It's an interesting video. Guess someone had an idea to make it better. Guess why we don't see to many today. I would not mind one as a novel display. Needs a pto somewhere to be a farm vehicle. Something to run a corn auger anyways.

Not that many figure 8 shaped fields that need to be worked. I see near the end why he drives it only in 1 direction of figure 8.

Anyone recognize the buildings in the back of the outdoor scenes? Somewhere in the Dearborn area?
