Well 1964 was the first year they had the rounded edges like that. The bumper kinda throws me through a loop. In 1965' is when they started offering bumpers but they were no way near as elaborate as the one you see in the picture. Plus in 65' they had a raised indentation on the hood. In my opinion it's a 1964 with a custom bumper added.

I would have to say its a 1966 massy ferguson snow troller model!! you can tell becuase they used the ccw engines. and in 66 was the only year they used black leaf springs on the yellow paint scheme. as well as black wheels.

I knew it had to be 61-63, its just that they didn't make a lot of bulbble nosed sleds in 61 and 62

That thing has got to be pretty rare?

Any clue on what it is worth? I would never ride it and put it in a bubble in my living room.

I believe that there were only 600 of those made that year.

Has nothing to do with anything, but the biggest clue was the cowl, the words are actually molded into it.

Hmmm, I thought they made Kohler engines until 1963 when they bought Rotax.

Okay read up on it and in 1962 Bombardier used the first Rotax motor in their snowmobiles. Not to doubt you but to me it doesn't seem to fit the bill, cause if I remember right the bubble noses didn't appear until 1964.

Well, I'm going on what the told me, and he said it was a 61.
It's just possible that he was wrong?
