The 1902 999 Ford racing automobile.

“Built on a wood chassis, with no body, and no hood. But, it did have some advanced features, like balloon tires and the first version of a driveshaft and differential (other cars of the day used chain drives). Its massive, 18.8-liter engine developed an unheard of 50 horsepower (some say as much as 70). In a twin of this car, called the “Arrow” (later renamed “No. 999”), Ford set the world speed record of 91.4 mph on January 12, 1904, breaking the mile-a-minute record with a 39.4-second run on the winter ice of Lake St. Clair.
