Only Sno Sport Wakes UP Winter was a slogan used by Rupp Manufacturing of Mansfield, Ohio to promote the 1967 Rupp Sno Sports. The 1967 Rupp Sno Sport had several improvements and changes from the 1966 Rupps. The Sno Sport still utilized the all aluminum chassis but with stiffeners added to the running boards. The engine was placed in a lay down position with the cylinder and piston reversed which allowed the exhaust to be located behind the motor. Track clips were added to the double sprocket track for improved reliability. The one piece hood and belly pan was still used but with fake grill decals and with no front bumper.
The 300cc Hirth engine produced 16hp. The plastic gas tank is mounted like a glove in the front of the nose cone and was a source of cracking and leaks. A replacement metal tank was supplied as a recall item.
