restored 72 Nordic 440 discounted

Price discounted by $400. Beautifully re-done 1972 Nordic 440.  I have performed all of the work on this sled myself with the exception of the seat. That was done by the master in Caribou, Maine, Kendall Sutherland.  This Nordic was an excellent candidate to begin with.  Purchased from the original owner who bought it new in Meredith NH back in the day. Sled has a little over 2000 miles of travel on it. Always lived indoors and was well maintained. Never crashed.  It was running and driving when I took possession of it.

The sled received a complete tear-down, including the engine.  All engine parts thoroughly cleaned and inspected. Original Styr crank bearings spun freely. Engine freshened up with new gaskets and seals.  All wear parts were replaced as needed including new sprockets, bearings, and seals front and rear. Original track is in good condition. It has, of course, tightend up with age. Extended link plates were installed to restore correct slack and alignment.

The muffler was sourced used, very difficult to find as it is a one year one model only piece. It has two repairs... where both inlet pipes meet the can. Test running seems to reveal no exhaust leaks.

Cab is damage free. It was wet sanded out to 2000 grit and buffed for a beautiful look. New graphics from doodecals. NOS OEM clear windshield. Front bumpers and grab bar are original and present well. Rear grab bar and brackets are NOS. Chassis, skis, springs, and all misc. parts were wet sanded to 320 grit primed and finished in John Deere Medium Gloss Black.

Wooden seat frame was completely rebuilt with oak and three coated with oil base primer and oil base high gloss black. Main frame finger jointed and doweled. This seat is like a living room sofa.

A very nice Nordic with no flaws. Starts and runs, everything works. Two hundred and seventy three hours put into this project (yes, I keep work logs on all my restorations).  $1,200.

The Nordic can be picked up in Ashland, Massachusetts, 20 miles west of  Boston near the junction of  I-495  and the Massachusetts Turnpike.
