Default snowstar pickup

I found the remains of a snowstar pickup in a pasture in my hometown. I didn't get much chance to look it over but it was still the yellow and white paint and had the snow star logo on the doors. Its pretty much just a carcass with no axles under it. The box is toast and there's another truck leaning up against it. If this was an ordinary binder id leave it but just cuz its the snowstar it makes me curious. Should I be cnecking into it? If it has the line settings ticket still in it, is the truck worth something or could I restor another truck with those specs? Id like to here what you guys think. He's got other stuff I want to contact about so im gunna try to get in touch with him. Maybe later I can get pictures.

I have only seen one, it was on Ebay, I assume most of them are rotten and crushed at this point, so I would say it is pretty rare!

Its basicly a stock pickup with a special paint job and a plow set up.I would definatly try to get it though,but I have every thing to fix it except the plow.

If you can, take a few photos of the SnoStar logo and stripes.

well i went and checked out the snostar some more. i dont think its worth saving.the boddy is too far gone. the grills smashed in, its pretty rusted out on the bottom and the roof has a nice size kink in it. i looked for the linesettings ticket but it wasnt behind the glove box. the motor is still in it but its so rusty and cobbled looking. im gunna ask the lady that owns them if i can get some stuff off it like emblems and cab lights but i think ill just let it rot there

I disagree, it may need a frame off restoration but it is worth getting a hold of, there is no documented Snow Star Pickup in the IH community making it the rarest IH pickup ever built.

Be nice if some one interested would have a place to store it if they could pick it up cheap enough.
I have a barn I put scouts in until someone can fix them up or what ever, but it's just to far for me to go get it.

Thats an afulley long drive for me,but any idea what she wants for it/does she have the title,looks like front axle might be missing.

I agree, that truck is unbelievably rare. Even if most of us don't have the means to restore it, it deserves the chance for someone who does to get it rather than part it out.
