This is a one-of-a-kind snowmobile built in 1969 by Northsport Industries, Inc. of Sault Ste. Marie, MI. The owners of the company were Dr. Tom Robinson and Professor Dick Zabelka and Marv Dahlman as a company officer.
Interestingly, this Timberwolf served as the Pace Sled for the 1970 Soo I-500 International Snowmobile Race. It was discovered in St. Ignace, MI by David Blair, Moran, MI, and he has donated this machine to the Top of the Lake Snowmobile Museum. 4 members of the Museum Board have restored this wonderful piece of history to its original glory.
The Timberwolf was promoted as a high performance family machine. It also could be used by utility companies, commercial fishermen, the Michigan DNR, and ski areas. Six or 7 of them were built. Each machine was a different color. They were a fiberglass, twin track, rear engine JLO 395, single cylinder machine. With the number of accidents on the St. Marys River, they decided to make them with the ability to float. Production ended in 1974.
