Hi Nantuk,
Snowbirds were a small enough and obscure enough brand that the full model list is not yet known.
I started a webpage that I hope will become the definitive Snowbird resource:

https://scotlawrence.github.io/snowbird/index.html

But the Snowbird enthusiast community, small as we are, has never heard of a 1033 Snowbird..until now! Yours is the very first discovery! I know that doesnt help with your quest though..sorry.

Could I please include some of your photos on the page as a new model for the list? If yes, could you perhaps take a front 3/4 view? Like this?



Now we know a 1033 snowbird exists, i'll do some research on it, see if google can come up with anything..
Are there any model and serial numbers on the engine? If yes, please post them, that will give us a model year..

Thanks! A very interesting find..maybe we can dig up more info about it..

Scot

Take the belt off and bring it to an auto parts store. They can measure the length for you and than compare it to belts of the same width to find out what width it is. Once you know the belts length and width you can order an after market belt of the size you need online cheap.

That’s kind of a rude move

If they’re measuring your belt you should buy a belt from them

As a business owner I’d throw you out of my place and would tell you your not welcome back

That was my first thought too. My local "mom and pop" auto supply which has only 3 narrow rows to get to the back counter has very reasonable prices. Never mind the larger Napa's

go to tractor supply, they have the belt measurer right next to the belts....they have kevlar belts that are better then the generic mom and pop store belts, and cheaper as well. If you get the wrong size, they exchange gladly.
