This particular Ski Doo is a unique model K-62 as the cab design is that of an A-62 model.
J-Armand Bombardier was looking for ways to reduce weight and to improve the performance and durability of the new Ski Doos.
The results of his weight reduction program became available on a 1962 model name the Alpine, which only weighed 250#. These machines were to have a 6hp engine and a new flexible suspension system with additional bogie wheels. The name Alpine was never used on the machine and the new lightweight Ski Doos were simply given the model number A-62. The K-62 (Kohler) and J-62 (JLO) were the other models for 1962. A little over 3,500 machines were manufactured for 1962. The A-6 model steel cab pushed in to 24.5 at the top, while the K and J models were straight sided and 27.5 at the top of the cab. This particular sled is unique in that the cab is bodied as the A model but has the K model engine and serial number.
