The Track Master was later re-named the Snow Master. From my research the only difference between the 2 models was the name. Track Master & Snow Master vehicles were different than Snow Tracs mainly in the length & width of the track, drive sprokets, and the width of the fenders that covered the tracks.

The Snow Trac was available in at least 4 configurations I can find
.
  • A standard 7 passenger cab.
  • A 2 passenger cab.
  • An open top version with no windshield.
  • An open top version with front windshields and a canvas over metal frame to enclose the rear when desired.
The Track Master and Snow Masters were available in at least 2 versions.
  • A standard 7 passenger cab.
  • A 2 passenger cab.

There are really 4 distinct machines: 2 Belt Snow Trac, 6'3" wide and 12 ' long. 3 Belt snow trac,(big wheel machine) same dimensions and weight. 4 belt Track Master which is 8'6" + 3/8". by 12' 6" long and the Snow Master, 5 belt, 'Big Wheel' macnine which is the same overall dimensions as the Track Master. They were originall only equipped with either the 2 man cab( primarily for Grooming visibality) and the 7 man cab. Both cabs came in a Tall version, but it's pretty rare to find a 'Tall Cab' in north america. The Canvas cabs were only made for the brittish military machines, which also had wing windows that did not open, were 24 V, and had Stainnless steel lifting hooks. The "NATO" machines were much more trimmed out with rear fenders, spare track sections, tall cab's, winches, fire extinguishers, fold down strobe..... ect!

Lyndon, I know you know about 10 times more than I do, but I do have an advertisment from the Alaska Sportsman magazine that shows a canvas top Snow Trac, with a front windshield and one wing window on each side directly behind the windshield.

That advertisement is located in the thread: Alaskan Snow Trac Advertisement Found.

What configuration would this be?

My snowtrac seems to have a tall cab, but no one seems to know why -? The number is 2325 - was it built in Scotland? Incidentally it has gone off to a local restorer to sort out the exhaust problem - I towed it on its trailer with my Landrover Discovery, but have now bought some new transport for it! Will post pictures later when the wind drops and I can go out and take some photos!

Default Re: Snow Trac production chart: Year/Serial #'s + Known MAGAZINE ARTICLES & Club Webs

Well thanks to member "Swe-Gus" located in Sweden, it now appears that there are 3 Swedish magazine articles about the Snow Tracs. I had identified one a while back, then identified a second article in the same magazine. But now am aware of the 3rd.

The best news is that Swe-Gus has copies of the articles!!!

The bad news is he does not have a scanner, but is in the process of trying to find someone who can scan the articles. Somehow, someway, we will get the articles scanned and posted. I have added the information to the first post in this thread. The articles are in RED type, when we are able to get scanned versions posted, I will edit the Red type to Blue and create "links" to the threads were the articles are posted.

We have no "registry" of Snow Tracs, and I know of no place else that does. It would be interesting to try to see how many we can find, and possibly build a registry of the machines. The fact of the matter is that with 2000+ units sold and rumors of 70% of them still running, it would be a difficult task to find a large percentage of them, but still it might be a good thing to start up.

Why dont we start one up then? I can account for 3. What format should we list them as Model # , type, cab configuration, track configuration, operational, rebuildable, RIP ? Can someone maintain a specific list without all the postings so it would be easier to view.........anyone have any comments?

Probably the best thing to do would be to send a PM to Doc with the idea, he may have some idea of how to do it.

Hello,

Picked up my ST4 today. The plate with the serial # is missing. Is there another spot, perhaps in the engine bay, that might yield more information as to which machine I have?
Thanks,

Mark, you are pretty much out of luck for an exact identification but there are 2 other things that will help narrow it down. First, if you can find a number on the engine, you can track down the year the engine was made, it is very likely your Snow Trac was made 6 to 12 months after the engine was built. FOR EXAMPLE: if you have a 1971 engine your snow Trac would very probably be a late 71 or a 72 model. Also there are some minor design differences. The later models had a large front bogie wheel while the earlier models had small bogie wheels all the way up to the front drive sprocket.

you might also look at some of your accessorys like mine was origionaly 6 volt and in the conversion they changed head lights and generator but left out details like wiper motors there might be a clue like that you can use to narrow it down if you have an early model there were a few years that used in board brakes with the old style brake drums to mount drive sprokets to

VOLKS WORLD magazine's website has an on-line article about a Snow Trac dated from February. Apparently this didn't make the print version of the magazine but here is a link to the article >>> http://www.forumsforums.com/3_9/show...932#post303932

Exclamation Re: Snow Trac production chart: Year/Serial #'s + Known MAGAZINE ARTICLES & Club Webs

I just received a copy of the British automotive magazine THE MOTOR, dated February 20, 1963.

There is a 1 page article, on page 101, entitled: GO-ANYWHERE SALOON with the sub-title: Innes Ireland demonstrates a VW powered seven-seater on Scottish snowdrifts.

Over the course of the next week I'll find some time to duplicate the article and post it here for all to see.

This is an article that nobody seemed to know about and apparently remained hidden in the back of the magazine, perhaps because it is only a 1 page story? Or perhaps because it pre-dates the actual export of Snow Tracs outside of Sweden and into the United Kingdom?
