The First 4×4

Encore Presentation

We found out that the first ever 4×4 in history came from Brookville, PA. So, we visited the Jefferson County History Center to see the historic vehicle and meet one of the original factory workers. Bill McCraken tells us about how he came build his own Twyford Car, and how he got his start as a machinist in the factory where it was first built.

Bill speaks on the groundbreaking original 4 wheel drive vehicle and what it was like to operate such vehicles back in the day. Bill speaks on all of the inner workings of these historic vehicles.
