BEAR CAT HISTORY
BY DAN CLANCY
David - Found some history on the Bear cat Talked to the son of one of the owners / builders of the Bearcat Snowmobile. Your Bear cat, mine, and (1) other Polar Bear cat were all sold from a Dealer in Olean NY. A man ( Frank ) was the one who use to make the delivery to the Dealers from the shop in Oneida NY. The main Office/dealer for them was just North in Marcy NY on Rt - 49.
He said the only dealers for the Bear cat were in NY only. The dealerships never made it out of NY.
They were all put together in a building the size of a (2) door garage.
If a customer wanted to pay a little extra for a custom color, they would do it at a extra cost.
the Chassis were made from a company called Apex, which also made
chassis for Arctic Cat
said they all very good running machines. His family was a Boa-Ski
Dealer and a Roll-O-Flex
I have been told by another source from a friend of the family no more than 100 ever made.
Frank saids either way they are very rare to see today.
I am 1 of 2 people ever to contact him for information for a long time.
