Yes...This is a very good place to find a Thiokol 601 however when one comes up for sale, you better be fast and have cash in hand.:wink:

WANTED... older Tuckers (running or not) also, tracks (steel or rubber belted) and parts.

Weatherby have you ever thought about calling in help to look for your older tucker ?? Those two guys (Frank & Mike) that are on the show American Pickers Antique Archaeology seem to get all over the country. I would say they have seen some old cats in their travels. I think they are located in Illinois. You'll never know till you ask...
OT.

Thanks ....I need all the help I can get.

There's a guy on the forum here that has a bunch of them. They rarely, if ever, see action.(at least that we know of) I believe he lives in Maine. You might want to try him to see if you can pry one of his 32 601's out of his hands.:whistling:

Does anyone know what the last year they produced the Super Imp and what was the company name at the time. Thanks
I have never seen a 1450 Super Imp without he DMC badge so i would guess 80-83.

I have never seen a 1400 series IMP with a DMC logo, I guess the last 1400 were produced in 79.

I have never seen a 1500 without the LMC logo, so i guess 84-2000.

I do have a 1980 DMC 1200. The cat has the DMC 1200 Badges on the sides. Serial number starts with D0A, thats D, Zero, A and i believe the DMC/LMC Serial numbers indicate the year made in the second digit of the number. For example a 1988 LMC cat might be L8A. The Thiokol serial numbers are not done in this fashion and as far as I know there is no simple way to determine what year a thiokol cat was made. Would be nice if someone posted the production info so cat production date could easily be determined.

Thiokol also sold units in europe under the name ratract. They shipped the chasis over to europe and had a company in europe build the two man cabs for the 2100Bs which the laws there required for safety.

I have been looking on the site and can find no reference to the 3 wheelers that thiokol made for a few years before honda and the rest came out with them.

Ray,

Maybe you should post some information here about them. I had no idea they made such a thing. I am sure I am not alone. Anything you can share would be great.

Regards, Kirk

Ibelieve that in the early 70s or late 60s the made a couple of batches of 3 wheeled bikes for the ski areas in the west as we had none of them in our service center in the east of canada. They did not stay on the market as this was just around the time of the sunday river lawsuit and the had a tendency to roll over. this was at least 4 years before honda brought out their bikes.
Maybe peterson may be familiar with these?

Yep, Thiokol did make a three wheeler, along about 1970, they were called Terra-Cycles. I'm sure I have some photos of them also, I will look them up in a few days when I get back home.

Sorry to revive an old thread, but looking for a little clarification here. The guy who has this DMC 1450 is calling it a 1998. Obviously, that does not seem possible unless I am confused. It has DMC badge on the side. What does the serial number start with an L? Shouldn't it start with an L? How can I figure what year it is? I am guessing 1984?

Mine have a DMC badge for the DMC and a LMC Badge for the LMC, but 84 was the transition year. That was probably one of the last 1450 ever made. LMC was still a division of DMC in the 80's.

only my LMC has exterior markings and they are decals.

A historical Thiokol / Juggernaut / Foremost Nodwell Question for you.

Juggernauts were built in the early 1960s. My question is who really built them? Did all three companies have involvement? Most of them just said Juggernaut on the sides of them. Depending on the required payloads, the number of axles varied in a configuration of four tracks. The track carriages underneath pivoted to provide turning. I'm sorry for not knowing how to size the pictures correctly. Scroll to the right for this picture.

Here's another one. Look at the right fender, right under the name Juggernaut in yellow and you'll see the name Thiokol in either chrome or white. Also right under the hood emblem is the name Thiokol

This Juggernaut just has the name Foremost on it - no Juggernaut or Thiokol.

I'm 99% sure the undercarriages were made my Foremost / Nodwell. I'm not sure who Juggernaut was? That was Thiokols involvement - did they assemble them?

Thanks,
Bill
