Coming up for auction in the USA in September is this unique Polar King 'Snow Cat'. Looking ready to tackle anything that Buller or Falls could throw at it, the Snow Cat features a pressurized cabin and seating for eight, so you and your mates won't have to wait in line for the chairlift!
Polar King International Inc. are a US company, better known for their refrigerated trailers and standalone outdoor refrigeration units. The Snow Cat is believed to be a one-off created by the company as a show vehicle.Powered by a supercharged Buick V-6 engine, the Snow Cat features wide rubber tracks, presumably to spread the vehicle's footprint and prevent it digging into deep snow.
Inside, there's a well-appointed, motorhome-style interior trimmed with real timber and burgundy cloth upholstery. Entry is via a step-ladder at the rear and there are storage areas aft of the troop carrier-style face-to-face seating for the passengers. The driver sits in a central position up front.
The Snow Cat is one of the consignments on offer at the Auctions America by RM 'Auburn Fall' auction event in Auburn, Indiana, this September 1 - 4. Coincidentally, Polar King's headquarters are also in Indiana.
