Argo Snowmobiles

Hi, just signed up for the vintage forum.
I found a very complete 1973 Argo 400 snowmobile in the bushes and have found out there is not much information on the sleds.
Made by Ontario Drive and Gear company in the early to mid 70's makes it pretty cool.
Does anyone have any information, manuals, parts, etc. for these sleds, there must be more out there.
Will get some pictures soon.
Thanks

Pictures on their way, got it home today it is in very nice condition complete with the original leather tool kit. Needs a good clean up and a windshield but i would think it is a rare one. First registered in 1972 and I think they only made a 100 units.

Here are some pictures in its natural state. Some cleaning up required but its actually in pretty good condition. The mileage is suppose to be correct but hard to believe. The guy I bought it from had it for 20 years and put 20 miles on it. The track looks like it has never been used.

That's quite the find! Keep us posted as you clean it up and get it back on the snow. It's always fun watching someone else's projects!
