Ford Quadricycle - 1896. At the Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield

Henry Ford built his first car at 58 Bagley Avenue, Detroit, in 1896. With its
2-cylinder rear engine, bicycle wheels, and belt transmission, it ran easily at
20 m.p.h. The success of this Quadricycle prompted Henry Ford to continue
experiments and ultimately to become an automobile manufacture.
