Yup! and it articulates. With the wider tread and the weight distribution, I bet it works well in powder. Good Luck, Rick

The Bolens diablo rouge were build from 1967-1969.  I own a modal 500 myself.   I have talked to this guy he very firm on his price and dont understand he is asking way to much for it.  

 

1967- diablo rouge 500

 

1968- diablo rouge 502

1968- diablo rouge 503

 

1969- diablo rouge 502

1969- diablo rouge 503

Engine and trax could be for about anything you could hook up to it.  Would it last in dirt?  Be about same as a Winter Gravely wouldn't it?  Price don't seem to bad for something rare to me.  BUT, is this really just a 2-stroke sled engine in it? Bet it is.
