1965 Johnson Skee Horse: Outboard Marine Corporation (OMC), Waukegan, IL, joined the snowmobile ranks in 1965 with near identical Johnson and Evinrude models and manufactured snowmobiles through 1976. In 1966 the Snow Cruiser became the Canadian OMC entry in the market.
The 1966 Johnson Skee-Horse has an opposed twin cylinder lay down design with a single coil and 14hp motor.
The transmission system has the ability to be disengaged when starting the machine. It also has leaf springs, a "neutral" pull-out switch and hand and parking brakes.
The original skis were formed with twin grooves to act as steering keels. These soon wore through and were replaced with a single keel type ski with replaceable wear bars.
