I HAVE HAD THIS FOR ABOUT 35 YRS NOW, AND JUST FINISHED REBUILDING IT. THERE ARE NOT TOO MANY OF THESE AROUND, AND I HAVE 2.

Nice old sled. I have never heard of a Caribau Marine. What does that have for a motor? Do you plan on riding it at vintage rides. Vintage sleds are a blast.

That is an interesting one. Man the running boards are tiny! Its a little strange that the hood is that light blue with the rest of it being yellow.

That looks really nice! It should be a show winner.[thumb] I didn't know Caribou made a sled like that. It looks almost like a copy of a mid-60s Ski Doo.

This sled was sold under the Montgomery Wards name in 1967. The colors are original, as I have 2 of these and have seen 1 other. I do ride it on occasion, it runs like a champ. The engine is a 250cc. Sachs with an HR series Tillotson carb.

Oh I see them now. They must be separate from the Caribou who made the twin tracked year round sleds without skis.

Damn right about the running boards...Hockey skates would fit in those boards. But hey, this is the stuff that made snowmobiling what it is today[thumb]
