Yep, my Dad bought two escort 440 starcraft snowmobiles back in 71 I think, were used, enjoyed and taken care of, mostly covered and stored inside for years. Just grabbed one from our camp in Ct. and brought it up to Vermont to clean up and get going again. Would consider selling the pair. Have manuals as well.
