Not familiar with the movie, but is it a Liberty Mini Mog?

This is the scene, but I had assumed it was a prop.

It was some variation of the "half-track". It's been so long since I saw the movie that I don't recall the specifics. If you scroll through the Google image search for half-track, you should spy something similar:

From the director's description: And so they arrive together, in a strange ramshackle buglike half-track vehicle, at the borders of Annexia. It is as cold and barren as Interzone was hot ...

Looks like an old Bombardier snowmobile, with wheels swapped in for the skis.

Bombardier B-12.

It is worth noting that this particular model is fairly iconic and well known in Canada. You don't see too many that are still running, but there are quite a few rusting in backyards in the North.

As seen at the National Museum of the American Indian!
