This is a one-of-a-kind prototype. It was built in the early 1970's by NorthSport Industries, Inc. of Sault Ste. Marie, MI.
Interestingly, the Timberwolf served as the "Pace Sled" for the 1970 Soo I-500 International Snowmobile Race. This Werewolf is the race version of Northsport's original model, the Timberwolf. Their intent was to run this machine in the I-500 Snowmobile Race, which is held in Sault, MI in February. It has a JLO 744cc engine.
This Werewolf was owned by the late David Strickland of Sault Ste. Marie. Dave did some survey work for one of the Northsports owners, and was given this sled as part of his payment. The company was going under at that time.
There is a picture of this Werewolf on the Timberwolf display board. Note that the picture shows a windshield and does not have a headlight. The holes for the windshield are visible on the hood. The current headlight assembly was added at a later date by Dave.
