SEARS SOLD SNOWMOBILES THAT WERE PRODUCED BY LARGE SNOWMMOBILE
COMPANIES LIKE ( TRAIL A SLED - SCORPION ), OMC, POLARIS AND SKI DADDLER. 

SEARS SNOWMOBILE HISTORY UPDATE
AUGUST 2016

1966 CLIPPER SNOWMOBILE - BUILT BY AMF SKI DADDLER.
BELIEVED TO HAVE BEEN SOLD IN SOME SEARS USA STORES IN LIMITED
NUMBERS. SEARS HAD 2 SLEDS AVAILABLE FOR 1966.  SEE BELOW FOR THE
OTHER 1966 SEARS SNOWCRUISER MODEL.

2 TIMES A YEAR, I TAKE A WEEK TO GO THROUGH OLD NEWSPAPER ADS AND
TRY TO FIGURE OUT SNOWMOBILE HISTORY FOR A CERTAIN BRAND.
SEARS SNOWMOBILES ARE COMPLICATED.  THE 1966 - 1971 MODEL YEARS HAVE
GIVEN ME PROBLEMS SO I DECIDED TO DIG DEEPER AND SEE WHAT I CAN FIND.

ADDING TO THE PROBLEM IS SEARS, LIKE SEVERAL DEPARTMENT STORES,
BOUGHT OUT UNSOLD SNOWMOBILES FROM BIG SNOWMOBILE COMPANIES AT
GREAT DISCOUNTS.  SEARS THEN SOLD THESE SLEDS FOR MANY YEARS UNTIL
THEY WERE ALL GONE.  THEY OFFERED THEM IN THE CATALOG OR IN NEWSPAPER
ADS WITHOUT PRINTING THE MODEL YEAR. 

NOW YOU HAVE TO WONDER IF THEY WERE EXAMPLE: 1969,
1970, 1971.  IN SOME CASES, YOU SEE THE SAME ADS IN DIFFERENT YEARS BUT
THEY NOW HAVE DIFFERENT MOTORS SIZES.  THEY MAY HAVE SIGNED AN
AGREEMENT WITH SOME COMPANIES AND SPECIFIED THAT WE WILL TAKE SOME
SLEDS EVERY YEAR BUT YOU HAVE TO UPDATE THE MOTOR SIZES EACH YEAR.

SOME TIMES, I HAVE OPENED THE DOOR ON CERTAIN BRANDS AND HAVE FOUND
THAT WHAT WAS THOUGHT TO BE THE CORRECT HISTORY WAS NOT RIGHT.

I AM NOT 100 % SURE OF THE INFORMATION FOR SEARS BUT I AM GOING TO
PRESENT MANY NEW ADS THAT WILL AT LEAST LET YOU SEE SEARS IN A
DIFFERENT LIGHT AND MAY CORRECT SOME PROBLEMS WITH THE CORRECT YEAR.

IN PARTICULAR, I AM HAVING A LOT OF TROUBLE WITH THE 1969 - 1971 SEARS
MODEL 309 CC WHICH WAS MADE BY OMC FOR SEARS.  THE DECALS ON THE
1969 SEARS MODEL 309 CC MODEL HAVE BUGGED ME FOR YEARS AND NOW
OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS, I WILL SHOW YOU SOME ADS AND ASK QUESTIONS.

I TRY ON MY SITE TO OFFER THE CORRECT DATES FOR ALL YEARS OF SLEDS.
I WANT PEOPLE TO HAVE THE BEST INFORMATION AVAILABLE.
IT IS NOT EASY WITH SEARS.

OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS, I WILL BE UPDATING MY
SEARS SECTION ON THE BROCHURE PAGES.

HERE ARE SOME OF THE SNOWMOBILES THAT SEARS OFFERED OVER THE YEARS.
