Looking for Info on Antique Evenrude Motor

I have an old Evenrude motor that belonged to my Dad much of his life. He passed away 2 years ago at age 81, and this motor is in my garage attic. I would like to pass it along to an antique motor enthusiast, but can't find information about it's value. I'm sure it doesn't currently work and would need TLC and some new parts. I have photos but don't see a way to show them here. Following is a serial number listed on the motor. Any help is appreciated. Thank you 4425-00959 Made in USA.

Re: Looking for Info on Antique Evenrude Motor

A model 4425 is a  1.5 HP from 1948-51, a popular motor.  Keep in mind that because of the number of older outboards still around, they do not have value like a car of the same year might have.

 

Condition is everything and needing work and/or missing parts greatly lowers the price.
