The XX sleds were made starting in 1970. The XX295, XX1400, and XX1440 were made and possibly others.  The 400 and 440 used an AMF modified version of the 493 Hirth engine called the "BP"  These engines were also used on the 71' XX1400 and XX1440.  AMF top end used reed valves.  The 295 was a 295 R Hirth. 

The '71 XX1300 and XX1340 used an Arctic Cat skid suspension system for the track.  This suspension looks similar to the Panther skid frame .  The '70 models used the normal '70 track and bogie system.

The '72 XX sleds were aluminum, and only came in XX1300 and XX1340 models.  The '70 and '71 XX sleds were steel.
