Rupp info
« on: January 17, 2022, 06:39:57 am »
I have 2 Rupp Snowmobiles and a lot of parts that belonged to my late husband. They are on a trailer and have been sitting in my garage over 20 years. One is a Magnum. I would like to find out what they are worth as I eventually would like to sell them. I do have photos and will have someone upload them soon.

    these are the Rupps that I need info on.  They are located in Connecticut.  I would like to know what they are worth.  They are on a trailer and there are several more parts.  (I hope I loaded the photos OK. I'm not good at computers)

    Nice looking machines. Hopefully more of the resident Rupp experts will chime in.

    the 71 Magnum is a hard to find highly desirable sled especially one in that condition. If it were mine I wouldn't let it go for less than $3500. Hope this helps. Sorry for your loss.

    In todays inflated vintage sled market I would say that $4000 isnt out of line for the Magnum.  Dont let any one steal it from you for much less.

    They both should make you some decent money. 800 Mag is right in that the 400 Magnum should be worth $3500 complete and pulling over. There wasn't a whole pile of Magnums built being meant for competition. The Sprint 44 I would guess $800 to $1200 in the same condition; pulls over and complete. But then again worth is up to the buyer; I may pay $4k for something that one of the others here wouldn't give $900 bucks for.
    geezus hun where you gonna put that one?                                     76 MERC S/T 250; 75 RUPP Nitro 2 440; 75 YAMAHA GPX 338 plus a half; 73 RUPP Magnum 440: 73 SPEEDWAY Blue Max plus a half; 73 RUPP Nitro 340; 73 SKIDOO TnT 340; 72 RUPP Nitro 400

    The Magnum is very desirable and would be an easy sell at reasonable price.  I could see $4000, maybe?   A fully restored one would go for much more is my guess.

    I remember those on the oval track and they were a force.  The Gessweins from Milbank South Dakota spent a lot of time in MN winning races in 71.  Jay Sperry didn't do bad either.

    My brother and I put a lot of miles on two 71 44 sprints, they are great sleds. Unfortunately they didn't look that good when we retired them. You shouldn't have any problem selling them for a pretty penny. Here in Colorado, there's no Rupps left, because I bought them all. So if you were closer they would already be in my garage.
