This machine is the Model J-90-H, which has a 244cc, 9.2hp JLO motor.
The 1965 front engine Mustang is credited with saving the snowmobile fortunes of Polaris after the disastrous debut of their original front engine Comet in 1964. The 1964 Comets were basically all recalled due to their poor performance.
The 1965 Mustangs performed very well, were light, nimble, and most important, they were reliable.
Originally, the 1965 Mustangs were offered with a hand actuated brake and a round cylinder shaped gas tank mounted directly behind the engine. Before the end of the model year the brake evolved to a brake lever mounted on the handlebars and the gas tank was built into a rear storage compartment located on the back of the chassis.
