Default Tucker Model 743 ACF

"Lady Penelope" 'Sno-Traveler'

Not sure if there was more than this one built for the New Zealand Antarctic Research program, or if this was just a hybrid that was crafted from one of the original 743CF's that was left behind on the ice. Looks to have a Snow Trac rear drive gear of which NZ had plenty of, but also appears to have a style of the ACF two tire front track system. Pretty interesting regardless

It very, very likely is. There were 6-8 that were sent there by NZ. Oh the things the mind & body can craft on endless winter nights!

Mid engine Tucker. Arguably the 'Donskoy' cat of Sno-cats. (Google is your friend) The box on the rear is an add on.

Sorry- the pic above is a 1342 BME. Typo.

Anyone have a picture of a 1343?? (only 4 wheel carriers) It was an option and I'm sure at least one made it out the door, but can't find a pic.

Hey, is it O K to go back?
Wood not be the first time I do Sno-Cat backward. We forgot to talk about Mud Cats.

Default All Terrain Cat

Not sure if we are going back or forward with this one. Touches steel, rubber, and other Genre.

Where are we fitting in the "All Terrain Cats"?

The cat in the brochure is alleged to be the same one in the last photo and has this build sheet it came with.

Built as a 1542 with small block chevy, All Terrain Tracks Added then ultimately removed and sold as a 342? Stainless rails on the toons now as it lives in New Hampshire.

Just when you though you had it all figured out! Bryan Adams and this cat had some stuff going on during the summer of 69.

That is definitely the second generation of the track system that was on the 542 ACF French units. Wonder if they made it out the door on something else, or if they just went to the scrap yard?

Interesting the rubber thickness on the R K wheels vs the sno cat wheels. More rubber and less casting on the factory less rubber and more casting on the R K.

Not sure which is better but I like the looks of the R K all matching. Wonder if the over all diameter is the same?

I think I remember a post that the RK wheels were slightly smaller diameter to help allow ice chunks & stones to fall between the tires. The gap on the factory was tight (like yours) and ice & stones would chew up the tires. Not sure on the truth of this, since in motion the surfaces are moving different directions and would be trying to roll material out of the gap.
