I'm looking for either a set of vintage 70s Tracker Midtracks or Tracker Fulltracks.
Trucks in used condition and/or in need of a slight cleanup are welcome.
Just let me know if you have something you'd part with!
Thanks, Steven

I'll take a look for ya. I know I have lots of mid-tracks but I might have a decent set of fulltracks I could let go. If so, I'll pm you.

Most noticeable difference in vintage is small pivot and gnarly pivot.

Then there are other things  like fully threaded axles, plain bottom base plates, oval around "tracker" on the base plate. All those things are on the early, small pivotTrackers

Yep, the first Trackers had small pivots and fully-threaded axles. The first full lineup (ca. 1977-78) consisted of Full, Mid, and Half Tracks - which were approx. 7", 6.5" and 5.5 inches from axle tip to tip. Magoo, you might have a set of ExtraTracks there, which cam out later.

Here's a pix of the lineup from my stash. Not the best examples, but they'll work for the sake of demonstration. Front to back: Full, Mid, Half.

Edited my search: I accidentally mentioned Half Tracks, but I meant MID Tracks !

Mid Tracks or Full Tracks is what I'm looking for...

Those look like Indy hangars on Tracker plates.

Yep you are correct, looks like Stage II Indy hangers on Tracker baseplates which I will assume are the Gnarly pivot because I don't think you could get an Indy pivot in a early narrow pivot baseplate hole.
