Three Sno-Cat 743’s which were used in a Antarctic expedition in 1966. The massive four-tracked snow vehicles made the journey to the South Pole in support of the Roi Baudoin Base, which had been established by Belgium – one of the 12 original signatories of the Antarctic Treaty in 1958. The Oregon-built Tucket Sno-Cat’s were returned to Europe and ultimately placed in barn storage. The paintings on the Sno-Cats are by Belgian comic artist Hergé who is the artist behind Tintin.
