1974 Mercury 440: The 1974 Mercury 440 (S/R) was powered by a CCW 438cc 40 hp, 2 cylinder horizontal engine and cost $1,225.00. The 1974 slogan was "Snowmobiles which defy the others". The 440 models had a slide rail suspension with a unique cleated track. They also had improved stability & steering with the biggest innovation being the introduction of a stabilizing bar on the front leaf spring suspension - a first in the world of snowmobiles! This bar allowed a snowmobile with a track of 15" to profit from the same stabilizing as a snowmobile with a track of 18" with better resistance to rolling, more stability in the turns and smoother ride on the trail.
