Specialty and Vintage Snowmobile News and Reviews from snowmobile.com, currently featuring a review of a 1968 Sno-Skat, a kit-built 180 lb very simple and low-profile sled. They were powered by whatever engine a person bought off the shelf, typically a 5 hp Briggs and Stratton. It's just like a kid's go-kart for the snow, and must have been a blast in 1968. Also featured is a 1972 Coleman-Skiroule RT, with a discussion of how offbeat genius designer Tony MacKeen used to sculpt his ideas in foam to get an idea of the three dimensional interaction of components.
