I had a 1953 Healy 100.  It was a "sports car" of sorts, but it had a 4
banger 2800 cc engine and transmission out of a tractor.  You could climb up
the side of a building in first gear, maxing out at 4 MPH.

I bet it couldn't beat my 1953 Willey's Jeep 4 banger I used to own. Once in 4-Wheel Drive, I could idle my way up steep hillsides. That old Jeep was great fun.
