there is a museum in christchurch, NZ that has loads of gear and a couple of vehicles from expeditions into the antarctic. It's kind of funny because the museum is next to the botanic gardens so from lying on the grass in the sun you then find yourself looking at all this sub-zero survival equipment and you have to tell yourself that NZ is as close a jump off point as you can get to the antarctic (from civilization, anyways).

The one on the museum page has an A on the door where this one has a B. Maybe sister vehicles on the same expedition? Unless someone brought in a chopper of some sort I'm guessing this photo was taken in the process of abandoning ship smiling

I don't know how but somehow it appears they got it out of this predicament... "Door Code B" is apparently now sitting in Medford, Oregon awaiting showing in a new museum.

Actually it didn't make it, there were 3 of these made and the one on display was one of the other 2.

I got this from the link you posted.

"As far as I can work out, the first Sno-Cat to reach the Antarctic (on the Magga Dan) never received a door code. It can easily be distinguished as it has the two rear side windows, which the other three Sno-Cats don't. It was probably the one named 'County of Kent' which was lost in a crevass fall on the Ross Sea ice shelf at the end of 1959."
