Back in the late 70's or maybe the early 80's there was a snowmobile named the Budweiser Super Sled or something like that. It was actually a converted mid 60's streamlined twin engined AA/FD. Sometime between the mid 60's and the late 70's it was changed from a dragster to a sled. It had twin blown small block chevy's and was completely enclosed by an aerodynamic wedge shaped fiberglass body.  I'm not sure if it ever actually raced or if it was just a Budweiser promotional tool. The last information I have is it was seen somewhere in Minnesota around 1980. I am trying to locate, or at least learn what happened to this car/sled and would appreciate any information any of you might have. Please contact me if you have any info that might aid in this search.
Thanks, Dennis [email protected]

Your talking about the Bud Sno King. The Goodyear speed tracks are no longer available for running it, that is why it is kind of dead merchandise. I think it is in Mn. but not sure.

I think I know the one you are talking about.  I started life as one of the Arctic Cat King Cats.  I saw it brake the world record on Green Lake by Spicer in the mid 80's.  I think the guy that owned that sled also owned the one in the pictures above.  He also had a dragster type sled with like 4 Yamaha 4 cylinder motors in it.  If I remember right he was from the Red Wing area in MN.  Pretty cool sleds.    Riley

Everyone, thanks for all the help so far!

It sounds like the sled I'm looking for could be the one Riley described - possibly the four engined dragster. Does anyone know the name of the owner of he rear engined car pictured above? It sounds like he might be the person I need to speak with. Or does anyone have any contacts in the Red Wing, MN area that could help me out?

Thanks again, Dennis
