This pair of 1963 Arctic Cat model 250's were bought in Wausau, WI from a fellow antique snowmobile collector. They were both basket cases. One was restored in 1983 with parts stolen from the other to make it complete. In 2003 I restored the other one, having to fabricate the missing items. After finishing the second one, I re-restored the first one, so the pair matches. The model 250 has a 10 h.p. Kohler engine, with forward, neutral, and reverse transmission. They are both equipped with optional saddle bags. One machine has an optional wheel kit, for low snow or summer use.  Rodney Dragan / Howards Grove, WI

1966 J.C. Penney Foremost
I found this snowmobile in 1989 north of Duluth, MN. It was sitting in a woods behind a house. The tunnel was rotted, but all of the critical parts were there. A new tunnel was bent and with a little paint it looks like new. Arctic Cat built around 200 of these machines for J.C. Penneys for the 1966 model year. Most of them went to the Alaskan Pipeline. Penneys spec'd a lighter gauge sheet metal for the tunnel so they would not weigh as much as a similar Arctic Cat. The Foremost snowmobile had a problem with the tunnel buckling. So they were retro-fitted with brackets to reinforce the tunnel. Only problem was that now they weighed more than  the Arctic Cats! It has an 8 h.p. Kohler engine, barn cleaner track and nylon slides. It has a fiberglass hood. The disc brake and gas tank are similar to the 141-D Cat.
