it was in excellent exterior shape. It ate two belts in an hour. I suspect the belts were vintage also.

Despite the belt problems the engine sounded great. There were riding two up on it and were ending up a 20 mile loop. So the dang thing certainly had heart.

Adding a little more interest to this was that the guy was wearing regular sled wear and the woman, in her mid-20's, was wearing a snowmobile "suit" like I wore in the 70's.

It says everest on the running boards....you can see the "EST" of it, the rest covered by snow.

Def not a 73 look at the molded rubber bars, and the gas cap etc....much newer than 73

I blew up the picture a bit. Is this the section of the running board you are seeing?


It says 377 Electro.

I didn't see another section.

Then yesterday when I was out I saw to of these together:

.

This picture is off the internet but these two were going strong through the woods.

Around here when we get some snow that's going to be around for a while everyone seems to pull their (really) old sleds out from the back of the garage and goes out on the trails. The only two trailside breakdowns I saw yesterday were newer Skidoos.
