Default Two 1963 Tucker SNO-CATs 443A consecutive serial #'s

Good afternoon Tucker SNO-CAT enthusiast! What does everybody think!

I'm new to the forum so please bear with me.

I picked up these cool machines in Fair Banks AK and shipped them home to sunny CA.

With lots and lots of parts!!!

They look to be in decent shape compared to some of the others i have looked at over the years. Tracks seem to be in usable shape, bodies are in fair condition. Blue one has the IND-235 "Runs and Drives" and the orange one has a V8 "Will have Running and Driving very soon". As the story goes they belonged to the AK Air Force and we bought many years back for civilian use. Orange one is serial #****903 and blue one is serial #****904. Found some neat pic of the blue one at the Arctic Man festival in AK a few years back on Google.com.

"I think i might restore them both of maybe sell one but most likely keep them together."

Thanks for letting me share.
Todd

I think you may have made a serious mistake.

Send them to me, I'll take them to spare you the embarrassment of owning those

Congratulations! (Really can't have too many Tuckers). Always interesting to see what you find when you start digging into them.
