    Polaris TC 250 project

    A coworker of mine was tearing down his dad's old barn and said there was a vintage Polaris sled inside. It was getting hauled to the dump unless I wanted it, naturally I told him I'd take it. Its a 1974 TC 250.

    First sunlight in 20+yrs.



    One of the first lay down style engines.


    The purpose of the lay down engine and low profile hood design was so that it could be hauled in the back of a station wagon, the windshield also flips down for transport.

    I pulled the motor to weld the steering stem and clean things up. Sled was actually in really good shape for its age.


    Motor back in and running.



    Time for some fresh paint



    Finished. Runs and drives good. Only around 500 of these sleds made. Now its going on a shelf in my lean where it will probably sit for another 20yrs lol.

    They were made in both 175 and 250, the 175 was a little more rare.

    That's cool I have a 250 and it looks identical to yours, Is yours a 175 for sure? Are you considering to sell it? would love to another one so the kids could play?
