About Stamp

The third set of Historic Land Vehicles stamps - to be issued once again in a souvenir sheet format - depicts farm and frontier vehicles, including three used on farms and three used in off-road conditions. The world's first practical snowmobiles were invented by Joseph-Armand Bombardier, and produced in his workshop at Valcourt, Quebec. While today's snow-travelling vehicles are mostly associated with small machines such as the Ski-Doo, the earliest products were multi-passenger vehicles. Bombardier recognized the demand for even larger vehicles to be used by schools and for transporting workers to mining and logging areas. Introduced in 1942, the B-12 was equipped with an updated track system with independent suspension on each axle. It was easier to drive and gave a smoother ride than its predecessor. Most B-12s were equipped with Chrysler engines and designated as B-12 CS.
