"Where the history of snowmobiling comes to life"
1975 Ockelbo

1975 Ockelbo

1975 Ockelbo: The Ockelbo sled began production in 1964 by the Ockelbo Industri AB in Ockelbo, Sweden. They were distributed in Sweden, Finland and Norway. None were sold in America as they were devoted to the European Continent. In 1970 they were the largest producer of snowmobiles in Europe. Many were used by reindeer breeders and for forest work.
This sled is powered by a 2 stroke Sachs 293cc fan cooled engine & weighs 353 lbs. Front & rear suspension is equipped with rubber bands for greater flexibility. Over the years many different engines were used in the Ockelbo (JLO, Trioman, Sachs, Sachs Wankel, Lloyd, MAG (Motosacohe)).
In 1975 Ockelbo was sold to Karolin Investi, who also bought Rajd Industri, AB Company, a rival snowmobile.

On Sept 20, 2019, The Top of the Lake Snowmobile Museum was awarded a grant of $12,500 for Operational Support from the State of Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs (MCACA) and the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA – ART WORKS). The grant was awarded through the MCACA peer review process and was one of 561 applications to compete for MCACA fiscal year 2019 funding. The grant requires a 1:1 match and helped the museum leverage the $12,500 of support from its annual income and the many donations from supporters. In particular the museum has received grants from the Graymont Community Economic Development Fund and the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians. It has also received significant donations from the Antique Snowmobile Club of America, The Midwest Vintage Snowmobile Shows, Inc., many snowmobile clubs, several recreational and snowmobile shows, the museum’s internal $1,000.00 Challenge, and many museum members. The grant funds will be applied to museum operating costs. Applicable costs include internal operations, marketing, travel to shows within the State of Michigan and cost of employees. The MCACA peer review process allows for each grant applicant to be competitively considered by a panel of in-state and out-of-state arts and culture professionals. This ensures the taxpayers, who support this project through legislative appropriations, and all other visitors or residents in Michigan will have access to the highest quality arts and cultural experiences. A complete list of grant awards around the state is available by contacting MCACA at (517) 241-4011, or by visiting the MCACA website at
