This is a prototype to the WWII Weasel. These were
military light personnel carriers. They are amphibious.
Driven by a Studebaker 6 cylinder 178c.i. gas engine.
Transmission is 3 speed manual with a 2 speed rear end.
This is the wider 20 inch track model. Engine was rebuilt.
Top is custom made with Lexan windows. Comfortably
carries 7 including driver. Over 30,000 were made so parts
are easily found. This is a VERY reliable vehicle. Believe it
or not, it does over 50mph. And yes, it still floats!
The weasel is ideal for mixed terrain travel. It's much faster than the
typical snowcat over packed terrain.
It does not do as well as the other cats here in deep fresh powder (over 3 feet)
