Please use this thread if you have a THIOKOL 4T series cat. Enter your dash plate info (model, date manufactured, serial#, date shipped, ect). Please include a picture of your cat and or dash plate. In my searches, Im looking at finding out just how many 4T's are still out there, how the serial numbers were given out, and any non-stock mods that have been done. In the future, it would be nice to actually make a website that can be used as a real registration page. Spread the news to all those out there that still have these beasts lurking in their yards.

:applause: GREAT IDEA. :tiphat:

I will make this page a "Sticky" page so it always stays near the top of the forum, it will be a nice resource for all you Thiokol owners who were unable to find and buy a vastly superior Snow Track (like mine!) :moon: But seriously, we have a bunch of Thiokol owners here and it will make a good way to gather information and maintain it in a simple spot for future reference.

I also made the Thiokol "600" registration page a "Sticky" thread so it will be near the top of the Forums list along with this one.

1961 Thiokol 4T trackmaster - tag on dash reads ''AX618'' - and that is the number we used to register it with DOL since it had no other tags.

Original color was the dark powder blue

there was no power divider in it when we bought it unfortunately - so some modifications were necessary -

Original 223 swapped for a Ford 300
Original tranny swapped for a Ford automatic
Original twin dana's swapped for diff from a 78 Bombardier model 250 (new ring/pinion which had to be flipped in order to get the correct rotation since there was no power divider) - looking for a brownie now to lower the gearing

I also have done a custom Thiokol embroidery design that I can do on hats/shirts/bags - anything I can fit in my embroidery machine basically! These are some of the shirts I did for Black Diamond Custom Cats (I think they were in Michigan?).

What's the deal with all the private dataplate stuff? It's not like you can get their address or credit card info from it. :confused:

Very cool. I was chatting to a guy for a while about one that was described just like this... he had restored it and donated it to the gov't but he had said it was a 601 and he knew cats...man, I was after him for MONTHS on that one then gave up when they decided to keep it but maybe they flip-flopped... maybe just a coincidence! Very nice setup... BUS INCLUDED! Wow.

Ahh.. nope... just modifying my post... found this one you just bought. Colorado. Different guy. Cool find though! I can breath well as that 601 is still out there calling...

Just saw that rig for sale at SafetyOne. Almost went for it, but I would rather have a 601. No more 601s for Painer Mainer! :hammer:

ok, ok. I need to have one 4T4 and maybe some more 602's... but any 601's I'll forward. I may be all done as well... who knows. Focus is a 4T4 but I should just stop now. But, with that said, I reserve the right to grab 4T10's though given some folks don't like them due to maintenance, blah, blah, and they can be more reasonably priced so I can beef up the numbers...and they have the unique personality with the power divider... infrastructure only an enthusiast can luv. LOL.

ps... I saw it somewhere else ... I believe he didn't pick it up at safety one ???

LOL - mind asking what you DID pay for it? I imagine quite a bit less than $12K......

yes, Monte Vista and that pic is in the same field were were test driving it in.... It was parked behind a barn and some out buildings..well hidden. I found it for sale when i typed 4t10 on a google search. It was close enough for me to consider and so I hired a pilot to fly me and my buddy out to look it over. We knew about the bus so if we liked it we drove home.... if not we flew back. 2 hour in a plane 14 hours in a bus!

yup... here are the remnants...
http://74.125.95.132/search?q=cache...14&b=4023+trackmaster+4t10&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=5

so close and yet so far... ;)
But then again...Bob has a 4T10 just sitting around ITCHING for him to buy it... but he won't! Grrrrrr! 8(

Found it couple nights ago...pre-safetyone ...but of course...that was TOOOOOOOOO late! LOL

With that being said... it shows how safety one operates. They did the same thing with that spryte not long ago... took it in, blasted it with paint (right over the lettering), and tossed it up for something ridiculous more.

On the 1450 on eBay right now... someone posed a question..."What would one of these go for.." the answer came ... new $100-140K... of course that did not answer the question.

Anyway, safetyone is awesome and unparalleled for safety courses, etc... but their machines are pricey and from what folks have consistently told me...they take them in and resell them w/o any work. They've not been to active over the last 12-18 months...having this Trackmaster is surprising...but it was nearby so I think that's how it happened.

The bus combo thing is just TOOOOOOOOOOOO cool.
