    Ultra rare 1928 Model A Snowmobile. This rare collector has a great story and history about this exact classic. There were 3 models the Snow Flyer, Snowbird and Snowmobile made by the Snowmobile Company.

    Here is a bit of history from the 3rd buyer.



    1928 FORD MODEL A SNOWMOBILE



    Talk about RARE!! This is by far the most intriguing classic. I have ever had the pleasure of buying. What make this one so special is I know the complete history down to the day it was Purchased by a Mica mining company in Quebec, Canada for the purpose of transporting workers to and from the mine. That was her job for about 7 years before the family I purchased her from bought her and used her in the harsh winters in Quebec for around 10 years. She then sat in a barn for 50 years before the son's decided to ship her to Washington and get her back on the snow. The barn was about to collapse so it was time. They got her started in one hour after working on her and she had not been started in 50 years. I



    There were 3 models, the Snow Flyer, Snowbird and the Snowmobile made by the Snowmobile



    Company. These were mostly meant for doctors, miners, isolated deliveries and mailmen to get through the deep snow....THIS ONE HAS BEEN USED MANY TIMES IN THE LAST TEN YEARS IN THE EASTERN WASHINGTON WINTERS! SHE WORKS!!



    As you can she has been repainted and word is she she was grayish black color. She has been restored as a driver.

    Has a Title and additional information.

    That thing's pretty awesome, I wonder if it worked anywhere close to what they show or if they were picking their spots. Also I hope they got that poor horse out of there that was floundering.
