mr loggah,
and or any other really smart guy, i need a little help ( okay, a LOT ), in the very early years of tucker sno-cat, they would buy used cars for the drive trains and built the sno-cat from the parts, thus, the first five tuckers built had, 2 chevrolet, 1 ford 60 hp V-8, and 2 dodge engines, all with different radiator shells, all but one was built by tucker inc, and the one i am looking for was not built by them, here is where i need some help, i need to identify this radiator shell, any ideas???

thank you tuckerville minion

fyi, your pontoons on your fabulous Glidden Glider are a prototype, more than likely only pair ever made.

Most likely isn't, but it looks like some of Ahrens Fox fire engine front ends from that era.

Im pretty sure your right about it being a prototype!! i think they were made with too light a gauge of sheet steel!! i think they probably got a deal on it after they wrecked the original one!I will be looking for another of the correct ones to match up the one on the other side,like this style.

I noticed two things that jinn missed. the seat was the wrong one and you don't need a visor and that track repair job has the new tin on the wrong side of the grouser chain.

Sure! sure! you wait untill i put a new bottom in it to make the offer !!!! I will think about it ,a lot of miles between N.H, and Oregon . I thought i might stumble over one a bit closer. Is there a difference on the rail width between the 3/4" track bearing,and 1" track bearing pontoons?
