1920's mud truck

This video of an old film is worth two minutes of your time. Please ignore if it was posted recently.... "Oilfield Dodge" Promotional Film 1920s Dodge Brothers Wild Ride - YouTube

Probably one of the most dangerous recoveries ever.

Good stuff.

I loved how they rolled it over, then got in and drove away with no damage to be seen. Try that shit nowadays.

I can't count how many times I've had to get out and kick the mud out of the wood spokes on my Ramcharger.

Seriously though, cool vid. They definitely don't make them like they used to, from any brand.

...and it took a tow strap (rope) to the 'b' pillar. Like that would be capable of being done in today's day and age!

That really was amazing.
The innovative attempt at righting a rollover was pretty cool. Flip it on its roof and then hope when pushed over it uprights itself...almost. No damage structurally and they had the common sense to roll down the windows before the righting attempt.
i enjoyed that

Did it have tire chains, or are 4" wide tires the ticket for mud??

As cool as those cars were, I'd hate to do my 100 mile daily commute in one.

Depends on the mud. I had a 67 Bronco that had narrow 16 inch tires and it was pretty decent in the mudholes around here. The narrow tire let it go through the mud to more solid ground beneath.

That's why most old military tires were tall and skinny.
