I have had my share of Citations over the years but I was curious if any one year/configuration stands out as being rare or even close. Seems to me the 80' model year must have been the highest production seeing that I see them for sale ALL THE TIME. (I'm excluding the late 80's Citations)

I did try to do some searching and I couldn't find any info on the topic besides a few random people claiming certain years are rare. Any info on production numbers of Citations?

1978 Citation in a shortened Olympique chassis of the time, was a late release and then 1979 model was the last of that style before the 1980 to 84 larger versions came out. the 78 and 79's were smaller with the 300 twin in them. Great kids learner sled.

Bombardier way over produced the 1980 models. My Dad purchased a Crate of 1980 3500's in 1981. Buy 1 get the second for 1/2 price.

My Brother had to buy his, mine was purchased by my Dad. He bought the 1974 400 Olympic for my Brother in 74.

I got home first so I chose the Upside Down one from the Crate, (less Corrosion). Rn it 1 1/3 season and traded it on a 1979 300 Enticer Special Twin.

My friend, (who's father ran a Doo Shop) ran a 1978 300 Citation, basically a Slider Elan in 78 when I rode my Brother's 400 Olympic. I liked the Citation it was way lighter than the Oly. The 78 would have been the lowest production Citation.

Love the 78-79 models kind of remind me of a baby RV.

I agree with DOH the 1980 Citations must have been the most common - Over the years every Citation SS or any SS bare engine I have run across is the 1980. The one year only engine. Would like to find a 81-83 to compare.

Never have personally come across real 1981SS(106 track) or 1982 or 1983 SS chassis (114inch). Really like the looks of the seat on those longer sleds.

But I can tell you this - the short track SS is a real wild ride once you get it studded right ...
