probbaly not the answer you wanted but:

It was Carl Eliason on the motor toboggan he patented it in 1924.

(oldtimer enough for you wise "edit for bad language"!
)

production sled??

When did the first consumer liquid-cooled sled appear?
Brutanza Engineering of Brooten Minnesota introduced the LC44 Brut in 1972. A 440cc, 50hp triple with CD ignition lay flat (ala FireCat) in an aluminum chassis, which utilized heat exchangers for cooling. The Brut (which also came in a 294cc liquid cooled twin) was eventually sold to Massey Fergusen and then again to Scorpion, however, like so many other sled manufactures, it never made it to the end of the decade.
