1967 Ski Daddler Cruiser 22

Ski Daddler snowmobiles were manufactured in York, PA by AMF Western Tools, Inc. which was a subsidiary of the American Machine and Foundry Company of Des Moines, IA. Ski Daddler introduced 2 models in 1966. They were the 5810 Power Sled and the 5920 Clipper. For 1967, 3 models were introduced: the model 5811 (10.2hp Sno-Scout), model 5812 (12hp Super Scout), and model 5813 (21hp Cruiser 22).
The Cruiser 22 featured a 22 track, a 540cc Mag motor, electric start, dual head- lights and had a forward and reverse transmission. The unit weighed 450# and retailed for $1299.95.
For the 1968 model year, 5 models were produced including the Sno-Scout, the Super Scout Mark I-II-III and the Wide Track 22 with 24hp.
From 1970 to 1972, 15,000 Ski Daddlers were produced before production stopped at the end of the 1972 model year.

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.
