Default '65 Tucker 443 in CA

located Northern Ca. $4000

Don't need to sell.. don't really want to sell.. but honestly she's just sitting in my shop as an ornament more than a toy.

1965 Tucker Sno-Cat 443. runs, drives, steers. Jeep OHC 6 cyl gas, 4spd. seats 2 adults in front and 6-8 kids in back. rear is big enough to sleep in. weighs about 4500# and fits nicely on a standard car trailer.

Tracks need love to make it reliable. These classic steel track machines come with a cool factor that cannot be denied, but their tack design is somewhat dated, so parts are a challenge. I would recommend anyone thinking of a machine like this to do their research and come to their own conclusions as to what they want/need. I personally have come to the conclusion that this particular machine is not a good fit for me at this time.

Possible trailer to add for the right deal

trades considered.. like maybe: sleds, crewcab truck, K5, Jeep, snow removal equipment.. whatcha got?


here's a few pics.

Do you know has anyone ever successfully changed this type to a newer style pontoon with rubber tracks?

its been done, but I dont know the details.. I would love to find a newer cat to swap the parts from, but most are priced above what I consider "parts".

I had a lot of local guys look at it.. just didn't happen.

My phone was ringing constantly.. Personally I think CT to CA is a long ways to go for it.. but the guy seemed happy.. real nice guy, he may pop up here soon enough.
