TODAY’S PATENT – AUTOMOBILE CHASSIS CONSTRUCTION
Today’s patent was invented by Ford Henry and Eugene T Gregorie on January 13, 1942, bearing patent no. US2269452A.
This invention is to provide a spring suspension for the front end of a motor vehicle wherein the front wheels are steerably and rotatably mounted upon opposite corners of a triangular wheel supporting structure, the intermediate corner of which is universally mounted at the extreme forward end of the vehicle. In this arrangement the wheels trail in back of their connection with the frame so that when bumps are encountered the wheels swing away from the obstruction. In the conventional construction the wheels swing into the obstruction instead of swinging away from the same.
