Below is an excerpt from a website article published about George. George DeAngelis, a long-time Ford Motor Company employee and devoted student of Henry Ford and his automobiles, passed away on December 14, 2014. DeAngelis is remembered for his published works on the Ford Model A. And the Ford V-8. As well as Henry Fords early 999. And Arrow race cars. Here at The Henry Ford, though, we especially remember him for a pair of three-dimensional contributions: his incredible 1963 and 1991 replicas of Henry Fords first car, the 1896 Quadricycle. Regular visitors to Henry Ford Museum know that the Quadricycle the original car built by Henry Ford himself occupies a prominent place in our. While the original car was used frequently during Henry Fords life indeed, he posed with it. Less than a year before he died it was retired to Henry Ford Museum by 1963, the centennial of Henry Fords birth. DeAngelis set out to build a working replica for the celebration. DeAngelis had the perfect background for the task. He possessed the skills of a tool and die maker, but with the careful eye of an artist. He had a genuine love for antique automobiles, to boot. There were no blueprints of the Quadricycle, so DeAngelis gathered every written description and photograph he could find. Of course, he also had the original Quadricycle as a pattern. The historic car sat in an enclosed display case. So DeAngelis estimated his initial measurements through the glass. Amazingly, when the original Quadricycle was removed for confirmation, DeAngelis found he had made only one error and of just 5/8 of an inch! What DeAngelis thought would be a one-winter project turned into three years of nights and weekends. He was able to source some of his parts from lawn mower catalogs, and some from antique shops, but most he made himself. While the replica stayed remarkably true to the original, DeAngelis made a few concessions to safety and reliability. Most notably, he gave his replica a brake something Henrys Quadricycle never had. The work was finished by June 4, 1963, when DeAngelis drove his replica along the same route Henry Ford took during the original Quadricycles first drive on June 4, 1896. Over the years, the 1963 copy. Became a staple of our annual Old Car Festival, thrilling visitors each year as museum staff drove it through Greenfield Village. In a neat coda to the story, we commissioned DeAngelis to build a second Quadricycle replica nearly 30 years later. DeAngeliss 1991 replica now sits in the reconstruction of Henry Fords Bagley Avenue shed. Measurements: see all photos. Please thoroughly review all photographs. PLEASE READ TERMS OF SALE.
