Arctic Enterprises built 1015 Panthers with the 760cc JLO engine option in 1970. The 760 JLO engine was basically two 372cc singles put together on a common crankcase. Horsepower was rated at 45-55 depending on what specification sheet you looked at. All 760 Panthers came with the ACS Expansion Flow exhaust system. Because of the massive size of the engine there was no room for conventional mufflers. The 760 engines were not fast unless a lot of modification was done on the engine. Most Panthers (stock) would run about 55-60 mph on a good day.
This machine was restored and raffled off by the ASBA Snowmobile Club in March, 2012. The $5122 raised from the raffle was donated to the Top of the Lake Snowmobile Museum Building Fund! Jon Selvig, winner of this sled, asked if he could put it on display at the Museum! Thank you to everyone involved
