New owner of a special build Mountain Lion 6x6. Unlike anything I seen before and just about exactly what I've been looking for. Most ATV's are a little too whimpy for what I wanted...had been looking at old Army Jeeps, etc. This will fit my bill just right. Needs a little work but that's going to be fun. This has a 20hp Kohler hooked to a Ford Escort tranny with disc brakes in the rear. Full time 6x6 with a 4 speed on the floor, power steering, Hydo dump bed and hook ups in front for a plow. Will need full maint prior to starting up....fluids, carb rebuild, etc. The story I've heard now more than once is this was a small company, now out of business, that built a handful of these as spec machines...some possible for the DOD. It's built "tank tough" and will work perfectly for firewood gathering and snow plowing. Will post a few more pictures as we get working on it.
