1972 and 1973 Mud Bug Page
From this paper ( back view ) we can tell it was made in Cleveland, Ohio. It came in 3 models ( for this year, 1972? ). They were the 371-700 ( 5hp ), 371-730 ( 7hp ), and the 371-735 ( 7hp with electric start ). The lit shows they all came with a 3" adjustable frame. They wieght's was 180lbs, 190lbs, 205lbs repectively. They claimed to be able to climb a 40 degree hill, and also sideways stability was at 40 degree Hill too.
They used a foot pedal for the trottle, Dual rear brakes, and a automotive style differential ( one wheel peel ), a front ski was a optional attatchment. The color of the 371-700 model was "Lime". The other 2's color was "Apricot Metallic Flake". Not my choice of colors. But then I wasn't buying back then ;).
The paper ( pic ) above is for Model 371-730. At the bottom of this page you can see the Dealers price ( coded ) and the retail price. To break the dealer price code just remove the first and last digit and that was the dealers cost. Which is $311.56 and the retail price was $409.95. The ski was $25.08 for the dealer and $33.00 is the retail price. It also came with a 6 month Warranty. Not bad for back then.
Here is the 1973 Models. They made 3 models in 1973. They were 372-710 ( 5 hp ), 372-720 ( 8hp ), 372-725 ( 8 hp w/elecric start ). Other than that the specs are close to the same as the 1972 models.
Here is the 3rd 1973 page ( above ). At the bottom you can see the dealer cost ( coded as above ), and the retail price. How ever on this paper it shows the bulk price for the dealer also. They also added 2 optional Items: A luggage rack ( $17.95 ), and a Light kit for the 373-725 model ( $19.95 ). If you have any info not posted up here for these models, and would like to get yours up here. PleaseE-mail me now by clicking right here. Thanks Howdy
