1950's Air Sled: This sled was handmade in Ely, Minnesota in the early 1950's. Similar to rigs built by Trail-A-Sled, this particular model is a one-off production. According to legend, this unit was used to haul the mail and groceries over the frozen lakes of the north country. The engine was made by Continental Motors, and is similar to the engines used on the Stearman biplane, which was used to train pilots during WWII. This engine was designed to power tanks such as the amphibious LT-4 Water Buffalo, which was used in the Pacific theatre of operations. Air-cooled, rated at 250 hp and swinging a 7 ft. diameter Maxwell Banks pusher prop made of birch, this powerhouse will propel the sled at over 100mph.
You know what those speed merchants say: "There is no replacement for displacement."
