The Henry Ford Museum has one of the world’s best car collections. It’s not just a car museum, though. As a matter of fact the automotive exhibits make up only a fraction of the displays, which are devoted to the history of technology and the history of the United States. Still, the car collection is what people naturally think of when you mention the Museum. Interestingly, though there are very rare and historically important vehicles, the museum’s most popular automotive exhibit is not one of the historic Ford cars, the collection’s fabulous Bugatti Royale, nor even the one-of-a-kind display of presidential limousines. No, the most popular item in the the Henry Ford Museum is the 1952 Oscar Meyer Wienermobile, one of five made for the meat packing firm by the Gerstenslagger company in the 1950s. It’s built on a Dodge truck chassis. There have been 10 different Wienermobile designs and the current ones are built by Prototype Source, based on a design by Harry Bradley. Right now there are 7 full size Wienermobiles, driven by college interns known as Hotdoggers, plus a bite sized Mini based Wienermobile that was introduced in 2008.
