1968 Larson Eagle: The owner of the huge Larson Boat Co. out of Little Falls, Minnesota was a minority owner of Polaris. At the end of the 1967 model run, Polaris had year-end inventory of its Colt and Mustang models. It seemed logical for Larson to snap up this inventory and re-craft the machines into the 1968 Larson snowmobile line. They became the Larson Falcon, Hawk and Eagle. This Eagle has a JLO 252cc, 10hp engine and an 18 in track. It sold for $895. Larson could use a means to keep its boat manufacture employees busy during their off-season. Larson surely had capable fiberglass and upholstery divisions. It was a great fit. And while 1968 brought a new design at Polaris, its 1967 models lived on one more season at Larson.
