Snow Blower

Never seen one like this before.

Is it possibly a "Home Brew"?

They were made from 1964-1968 and had two models a 24'' 4HP and a 26'' 6HP
I have never seen one in action but I would guess they work just as well as the Tubeframe blowers since the design is basically the same.

As for rarity, I wouldnt consider this extremely rare but its definitely something you dont come across every day.

We sold them at our dealership. ......They were good, reliable units.

The model in the listing is the 6hp 26" width Arctic 60. ....They had Tecumseh Sno-King engines.
