This was my first sled and the pic was taken many years ago.
I would like to restore one of these some day but I have no
idea what model it is. Can anybody tell me what it is from
the picture? Thanks!

I'm thinking that it is a 1974 Olympic but not sure at all!
One thing I doo know is that the little sucker took a huge
BEATING before she finally gave in. And
i've been hooked on Doo's ever since.

I agree, looks like an Olympic to me.

I grew up on a 68' and it took a beating also.  

good luck, I'm sure you can find one to restore.  I have seen a few of them for sale.

That's exactly what I was thinking too. And I don't
exactly remember the grab bar on the front but it
probably just broke off early on. I rolled it a lot
and even snapped a ski off.

My ski-doo reference book isn't here, but I would guess around '71 or '72.

i had a 72 Olympic. and the first pic is not a 72.  it is similar but i did not have the side vents on the hood.  it is very similar otherwise with the pop up light, front fill gas door, ect.
i'm guessing newer, 1973 Olympic

Hey thanks guys! It kind of bums me out that I only have the
one picture to go by but at least I have that right. On my
usual route to work I noticed that one of the old barns has
a couple old Ski doo's near the front door that might just
be what I'm looking for so I think I might jusy stop by and
chat with the farmer. Maybe he will trade me for my 1969
Olympoc.

According to Phil Mickelson's Ski-doo Buyers Guide, the '70 Nordics had black hood vents & the '71s had yellow vents.
