You would think that with the Wikipedia write up here:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/KRIS...rs_and_the_KT7

one of those auto or machinery collectors with a ton of cash would jump on the chance to buy this. Even with the rare muscle cars that sell for over a $100k they made more than 4. I am not a collector and I don't have a ton of cash and I am even thinking about it, just for the investment alone, problem is I need a backcountry cat and can't do both. Then there is the fact that I don't have one of those collection showrooms or a 12 car garage.

Yeah, I saw a redone late '40's early '50's GM bus, without the original engine but otherwise completely redone, go for 4.something million dollars at one of those auctions on YouTube. It was nice but not 4 million dollars nice. If there is a market for that there must be a market for this. Will you take $30k? Lol...

You know almost 25k and the machine doesn't even work right? How does anyone justify this price. Because this is the 4th one made? The first 3 didn't didn't work right. This one didn't either... just being honest. Why pay this much for something that isn't truly operational?. Someone enlighten me. And if your argument is that it's unique save it. A snow machine has to do one thing good, get me through the snow.

So there is the short answer and the long answer.
Short answer is- it's for sale for $25k, and if your not interested don't buy it.

Long answer - have you ever driven an old corvette "c1 or c2" they are terrible cars. They leak oil, brakes don't work, tires suck, sometimes they don't start and they aren't safe. A new civic sti or golf gti would beat them in a race. But people still fork over $100k for them all the time because they are cool, and have a neat history and so on.

So you might say "it has been for sale for a year and hasn't sold must be priced too high". To that I would say look at the other cats that have sold or not here on forums forum. Typically the vintage cats priced $20k and up either take forever to sell or don't sell. Examples include the yellow thiokol for $25 that never sold, the beautifully restored st4 that people are arguing about, the tucker 1443 that has been for sale forever. These are all desirable cats that would have sold in 5min if they were in a field, in need of a full restoration and $500. Seems like we all want to steal a snowcat and do our own restoration. Another example are the tucker 222s that have been for sale this year. At around 5k they sell in 5min, someone asks $8500 and it just sits. So that's just how most vintage cat buyers are and just because a cat doesn't sell at a certain price it doesn't mean it's not worth it.
Finally this cat is historically significant and having a high barrier to entry will hopefully insure that it ends up with a serious collector that will love it.

Sean,

Your youth is showing...

Admittedly the early C1 Corvettes left something to be desired, but the C2s are nowhere near terrible. In fact, I would say the C2, known as the "Stingray" (1963-1967 production years) are consistently among the most valuable and collectible of all American cars. The 1963 Coupe was the famous "split window". That is one of the most iconic American cars of all time. In 1965 four wheel disc brakes were standard equipment on the Corvette. With the power brake option those brakes work very well. In mid 1965 Chevy offered a big block engine for the first time in the Corvette, the 396 rated at 425 HP. For 1966 the displacement was increased to 427 cubic inches and it was initially rated at 450 HP. Due to government/insurance company intervention Chevrolet re rated the engine at 425 HP, but no changes were made to the engine or its tuning! (A bit of trivia, it wasn't until the 2008 Corvette, with the Z06 option, that a Corvette had a higher factory horsepower rating.) In fact, the 1966 427/425 HP Corvette ranks as number four of the 50 fastest muscle cars of all time!
http://www.chevyhardcore.com/news/th...s-of-all-time/

Yes, the tires did "suck", but hello, back then all American cars came with bias ply tires, not radials. You can put radial tires on these cars and it is a nice improvement.

The 1967s tend to bring the most money of any of the 63-67 years and really nice 427 cars with the 435 HP engine (featuring tri-power carburetion) consistently sell for hundreds of thousands of dollars. The uber-rare (only 20 were made) L-88 cars sell for literally millions (plural).

Have you ever heard a Corvette 427 big block engine with a solid lifter cam and the factory side pipe exhaust? That sound is incredibly awesome. There is absolutely no comparison between that and the Hoover (vacuum cleaner) inspired sound of a GTI or Civic STI.

You need to watch this:

Listen to the remarks at the 2:25 point.

and the best part is to be old enough to have hear a 427 vette on the street in the day, better yet, 1966 Cobra SC, 427, the one with the side pipes and it's No. 2 on the list of fastest muscle cars with highest top speed. yup, faster than No.1, And then to drive it, oh my god.

or how about a '66 Ford GT and or a Dayton coupe on the track back in the day

that is a sound you will never forget


and back to the real reason for this Tread, lets find a new home for an interesting and important part of snow cat history, be the only kid on your block with a KT7 in your living room...

If only I had the money it would be sitting next to my Glastron/Carlson CSS33 in my parlour with the '84 Trillium front dinnette model on the other side. I'm going to go buy a lottery ticket!!! Lol

I agree with Pontoon Princess, we should not distract from the goal of finding this beautiful cat a new home. I was just trying to defend the kt-7 from the negative comments above. I will also buy a lottery ticket just in case. Blackfoot Tucker, your correct about my age showing and everything you said about the c2. It was far superior to its counterparts from the same Era.

A 20 year old in Florida won the big one. Took the $281,000,000.00 lump sum payout.

We need to make him into a snow cat lover. But being from Florida probably never heard of one.

I have observed many (snow cats) listed for sale in southern states, they are usually employed to slog through the muck and mire of the swamps.....
I think there was a 4t10 or a 601 project on the forum a while back wasn't that rusty yellow hulk in FL?

Roof top AC on the KT-7 might open up another region to market it too.

on a serious note,

the KT7 has had extensive work done, all well documented by Big Al, it is a wonderful piece of history, all and all, a nice snow cat, would be a fun and interesting snow cat to own, best part, would not be confused with a Tucker Sno-cat

After some new snow and some consideration we have decided to pull the KT7 off the market. The KT7 is no longer for sale. We are just going to enjoy it. https://youtu.be/zwsCXzs8mMs
