1972 NORTHWAY RX440 RACER
SCROLL ALL THE WAY DOWN THE PAGE 
TO SEE ALL OF THE PICTURES.

* Owner / Restorer: Dennis Bill from Flushing, Michigan 

* Northway was founded in 1970 by Stan McRobert. The original name chosen for the new
company was Norway, but was soon changed to Northway. A few prototype sleds were built
under the Norway name, but were never mass-produced. About 600 Northway snowmobiles 
were built for the 1969 - 70 season. The sleds were completely redesigned for 1971 and
production peaked at 6000 trail sleds built for the 1972 model year. Northway produced
snowmobiles until the 1974 model year, but over-production by all snowmobile manufacturers
and the oil shortage spelled doom for the company. 

* This sled was 1 of 21 factory-built racing machines assembled in 1972 at the Northway
production facility, located in Pointe-Claire, Quebec, Canada. It is powered by a Sachs RX440cc
engine. The color of the sled was chosen to match the lime green color of a salad bowl that the
founder of the company had in his home. 

* This snowmobile was originally purchased by Bill Jones of Lyndhurst, Ontario, Canada from
his uncle, who owned a Northway dealership in Gananoque, Ontario. After his death in 2000, his
daughter and son-in-law started the restoration. They disassembled the machine, but never
found time to get beyond that stage. It was at this point that Dennis purchased the sled,
disassembled, and in 3 separate stalls of their barn.

* Restoration was completed in just less than 2 years.
