Good Morning Brad ,
Seems to me it would be more valuable in its original camo colors . Is that a Snow Master ? It sure looks wide . Coffee's on .

Well, we do not have it back here yet but it has 36" tracks not the original hood or grill but rest is. Thinking of your hunting season coming up... our small game and Bow deer season opens Tomarrow.... was out last night on the south 160 and saw a huge Whitetail. might have to flying to move some critters around.....

With 36" tracks it must be ! The fenders look like they pretty much cover the tracks . I do not know much about the difference between the two models ,but it sure looks like a Master .

As far as hunting season ,I am trying to get motivated . I like be the camp cook and usually do most of the pushing and moving to get the animals up and moving .
WE know the areas well enough to know where the animals will cross or try to sneak out too . Our best results are to just set in the evening and wait for them to feed out into the meadows . One of the guys took his Elk in the last 5 minutes ,on the last day this past year , using this approach .It is ,by far the easiest hunting I have ever had . Good Luck !

That looks like a model ST4-B, not an ST4. That would make it either a Trac Master or a Snow Master, depending on what year it was built. I seriously doubt if it is a military unit, but it might be. A military unit would have a 24-volt electrical system (or probably some remnants of that). Military units also seem to have had the gas tank relocated but that one shows the original fuel tank position. Most military units had open cabins or full cabins, at least in Europe, not sure how many military units came to North America, but that is cleary a short enclosed cabin, not an open cabin, nor a full cabin. The headlamps are not stock, or if they are, they were taken off their mounts and reset lower directly onto the fenders. Grill and hood are clearly not original. I doubt if the mirrors are original either. I've never seen any photos of a 'military' paint job that looked like that one, so I wonder if that white/black paint is original, but I would question it. Also, on the front passenger side fender is what looks to be a stylized Swastika, that would certainly not be something that would have been used in the late-50's/60's/70's which was the "cold war" era between NATO and the East Block. The Swastika would date back to the 40's era of World War II. BTW, does it have windshield wipers or front cabin running lamps? I don't see them, but then again I have bad eyes.

Al, calm down. There is still a major advantage to this unit over the KT7. This one looks like it works
