1969 Polaris Colt

What was your intended objective when you started the build?

To rebuild it completely original

What motivated you to start your project?

My son. I had the sled since before he was born and always wanted to restore it. One day he decided it was time and we restored it together.

What was the most unique and creative thing you did to the sled?

It is unique that there are no other 69 polaris’ at any of our local sled shoes.

What are you most proud of?

Rebuilding it with my son. Teaching a 14 year old about 50 year old snowmobiles is priceless.

What do other people say about your sled?

Everyone loves it. I get many compliments.

    That is a beauty for sure,nice job. That was the first snowmobile my parents bought back in 1969,there were 7 of us kids. Mom and Dad would ride double on it, and back then there were no snowmobile trails,so they made there own. When they would go on a weekend snowmobile trip with others they would have to make their own trails and maybe get 25 to 30 miles a day on,plus repairs along the way. My dad raised the seat around 2″ with some c channel and put hinges on one side and under the seat was used for an extra belt and a few tools. Great memories for sure.
