Well, as usual, I'm late again. You know guys, I have other things that require my attention.......can't always be monitoring the FF.......

Anyway, I have a 1959 Kristi KT3 (S/N 048) owned by the company (although they're not proud of it and don't want anything to do with it), so I guess I can say it's almost my baby.

OK Big Al, I'm caught up!!!

Cushman Tracksters are very cool little machines. I was actually hunting for one of those several years ago but couldn't find one for sale at a reasonable price. I think of the small machines they are probably as good as is available and a true go anywhere vehicle, ideal for playing on rural property.

Dave, I am no longer looking. When I was shopping I didn't have the Snow Trac. But as for NM, I used to get there on a regular basis because my in-laws (no deceased) lived in Albuquerque. Spent a bit of time there, also would go Las Cruces, Riodoso (sp), Sante Fe, Ponderosa, and a few other spots.

I have changed from "looking" to "owning" a Tucker Sno-Cat. I should take delivery from Bill Guthrie in the next few weeks of a 1974 540 Torpedo. This year came stock from the factory with a small block chevy engine.

Its new home will be in Middleton, Colorado which is about 12 miles up the Animas River from Silverton [@10,000ft elevation].

I will be able to enjoy the sunny winter days in my new convertible, see attached picture.

WOW that is the coolest looking Sno-Cat that I have ever seen. It looks a lot like a snowcat version of an Auburn Speedster Convertible! Congrats on your new toy. Being a 500 series you have the ultra wide tracks on yours so it should float above the snow! What is the overall mechanical conditon?

Another nice thing about the steel track Sno-Cats is that if you run them over your grass you don't have to mow the lawn

Welcome, Donald!!!! and congrats on the cat purchase. If you're like any of the rest of us you'll be hooked.

I've eyed your particular cat on Bill's site for some time. It was a shame to see it sitting in the yard. Sounds like it will go to a good home.

One thing that peaked my curiosity is that you said your has the SBC motor. I have a 1971 1342 that also has the SBC. Mine is a 283 (so I'm told) and runs like a top. There don't seem to be many SBCs in the Tuckers but the factory did tell me that they built most every unit in that era as a custom build to spec unit with whatever the customer wanted.

Please post more pics and details when you get a chance!!!

Vance

Well.... eventually... I just put a quick rattle can jobber on there so it was only one color...

It will stay like this for the remainder of the season and then get completely tore down this summer. At that time it will get a respectable paint job.

My first sno-cat arrived at its new home in the San Juan mountains of Colorado. Just unloaded from the truck and looking for some fresh snow to play in.
