After Hours

Rail, auto, and aviation innovations at The Henry Ford history museum

Tech of the past: Ford Quadricycle

A popular misconception is that Henry Ford invented the car -- he did not. He did, however, invent this car in 1896. The Ford Quadricycle was built in a shed behind the house that Henry Ford rented at the age of 33 with the help of some of his friends. The Quadricycle had 4 horsepower.

You didn't think we'd have a Henry Ford museum photo gallery without some cars, did you?
