1970 Dauphin: "The Way to Go on Snow" The Dauphin snowmobile was only made for 3 years from 1969 through 1971. The Dauphin was manufactured by Les Industries Dauphin Ltd. of Grand'Mere, Quebec, Canada.
In 1970 there were 11 models and this is the D1150 model which was powered by a 246cc Hirth engine. The seats were very elaborate with the Dauphin design engraved. Almost 2000 were made in July, 1969 for the 1970 season. Dauphin also built the Manhandler snowmobile for J.C. Penney's. The Dauphin line was bought out in 1971 by Dufrane Motors of Malone, New York to produce their own 1972 Sno-Chief (identical to the Dauphin, but red & black).
