Snowmobile is a tradmarked word, for Model T and Model A conversion kits

Virgil White, a Ford dealer in Ossipee, NH, perfected his Snowmobile in the late teens, and offered conversion kits to Ford dealers for installation.

White trademarked the name Snowmobile, a term that is still in common use today.

The factory in Ossipee produced many thousands of kits a year. Reproduction parts are currently being made that allow for the maintenance and conversion of any Model “T” Ford into an authentic Ford Snowmobile. For more information about then visit
