Default '57-58 Trans Antarctica Sno-Cat

Here is a link to the One Tucker Sno-Cat that made the journey across the continent but fell into a 100' deep crevasse, killing the driver. One of the survivors tells his story. The photo in this article shows Sno-Cat Able which is now in NZ. The photo says it taken in 1969. there is a Nodwell beside it in the photo. Does anyone know what year the Nodwell is to verify the date? Thanks http://evolutia-stelara.blogspot.com...killed-in.html

it's tough to tell looks to be a robin nodwell also refered to as an rn it would be an early 70's rig the nodwells didn't change much , like snow tracs there was a buy out by robin in the mid 60's and later bruce nodwell started formost and built the same machines under the formoste nodwell also known as fn models the fn tended to be larger and heavier than the rn models.
