I have an everest that looks just like yours except black and with a 340. *Engine runs like a top but the body is shot. *Its also one of the most uglyest designed sleds i ever saw. *That showroom grabber head light offset really doesnt work for it.

Those are some nice looking old sleds. Brings back fond memories.

I have a old Everest. *The engine runs mint. *It used to be super sleek untill my friend smacked a tree. *Then the sled went totally downhill. *Te cowel fell off when my brother jumped a snowbank and the cowel flew forward and he landed on it. *Now we drive it with no cowel. *It still good except for all the fumes that get sent up to you.

I got my old everest running today. Runs very good. It even idles, and it hdn't been run in at least ten years. All I have to do now is take the rear susp. in to work tomorrow and heat up the front arm a little with the torches and drive the frozen shaft out, clean it upa and reinstall, then its off to the cabin where the guy at work is going to take it off my hands.
