How pleased am I to discover this forum? Here is our newly acquired Snow Trac beginning the process of restoration with a good steam clean.
Number 2342 and currently residing in the West Midlands before heading off to the Savoie region of the French Alps once completed.

I don't know about the rubber track or what you need and what is necessary to replace under the engine hood, but from a first look everything are there, and in great shape - condition. (Tyres, guides, spring etc).

Congratulation for this deal.

The most important is that there is no any rust in the frame.
The previous owner probably had parked this Snow Trac in a garage.
What is the story of this ST?.
From the Island to the France (Savoie Region).

The best Wishes.

Nikos

Thanks Mike and Nikos.

We've started stripping the ST, prior to soda blasting. The red top coats were applied very poorly. Interesting layers of paint under the red. Discovering the initials '7RN 13' on the dashboard confirms the vehicle was ex military. Also good to discover what parts are aluminium and what steel.

The electrics are a mess under the dash. Temp guage and speedo not connected, only hour recorder.

As yet we have not been able to start it due to knackered starter motor. New one on it's way, so hopefully this week.

#2187 just followed me home this weekend. I saw it at a garage sale last year and it was all dismantled for restoration. I told the lady running the sale I would buy it if she ever wanted to part with it. low and behold she was moving and called me to pick it up. so I spent most of the 4th weekend finding as many parts for it as I could and hauled it home. it had been converted to Subaru power somewhere in it's life. missing some parts but overall in great shape.

Congratulations! That looks very promising. Do you have any pictures of the engine/cooling system? I am curious what they did for the radiator.

thanks jask. I never found the radiator, the motor and transaxle were all gutted out of it and in separate piles when I picked it up. practically every bolt in the st has been removed. I searched over 2 acres of stuff to find all the parts I do have. missing all of the variator, steering column, have the bands for the missing track but no cleats. I do have a barrel of the inner wheel guides tho. actually quite a jigsaw puzzle. it did come with the original manual and parts book. looking forward to doing this project but I still have the hustler tore apart in my garage. at least it's safe here and not getting sent to the recycling center for scrap...Bill w

Number 886 has recently been purchased by myself and is currently in the middle of a refurbishing job. Not really a stock restoration, I'm doing a 2.5 Subaru conversion and sending the tranny off to get rebuilt with some custom gear ratios and other heavy duty upgrades.. But that's just the beginning. I've gutted the interior, removed all the wiring, replaced all the rivets, installed custom aluminum reinforcement panels, purchased new seats, etc. I'm replacing the old vinyl top with an aluminum panel and large power sliding sunroof. All lights are getting swapped with LEDs and dash panel is getting swapped with fresh aluminum diamond plate complete with a new set of custom gauges and new rocker switches to control all the accessories.

I'm sure there'll be other upgrades along the way. But it should be a pretty sweet and functional rig when I'm done with it. I'll attach a couple pics of the current state of things.

A few weeks ago, I noticed that there's a green colored one parked in front of Skinny Dick's restaurant (google it, but make sure you type "Alaska" also, or you'll get nothing but porn..).

I'm not sure if it's for sale, yard art, or what. Been meaning to call there and find out.
