1971 Rupp Magnum

What was your intended objective when you started the build?

We wanted to build a cool sled that may have been a thought at the Rupp factory back in the early stages of performance muscle sleds. We built a sled with our favorite sled chassis and power plant to call our own (no offense to the factory built Rupp).

What motivated you to start your project?

Rupp never built a Magnum with a Kohler F/A motor. We decided to clone a ‘71 Magnum F/A and install an eye-catching Kohler SS motor. We had a vision for a sled that will spark great conversation and catch the eye of other vintage sled-heads.

What was the most unique and creative thing you did to the sled?

Kohler SS 440 power plant

What are you most proud of?

The build got its roots one night with my brother and I sitting around talking through ideas to now completion.

What do other people say about your sled?

Not sure yet, not many have seen the finished sled. I hope folks will think it’s cool and original. I hope all the Rupp followers like our idea and appreciate the sled.
