Snow Vehicle Concept (1924) (VIDEO)

A demo film of the Armstead Snow Motors Company concept snow vehicle - powered by a Fordson tractor and a Chevrolet automobile.
  In January 1926, Time magazine reported: “Having used the motor car for almost every other conceivable purpose, leading Detroit automobile makers have now organized a company entitled "Snow Motors Inc.," to put out a machine which will negotiate the deepest snowdrifts at six to eight miles an hour. The new car will consist of a Ford tractor power-plant mounted on two revolving cylinders instead of wheels—something on the order of a steam roller.  Source: Wikipedia
