Identifying my outboard

Hi All,

Ive just acquired a boat and motor and can't find an actual year and type for the motor. Was wondering if anyone could ID for me with these pictures. Im a bit confused because i can find the 'Starflite' and the 'Four-Fifty' but this has both decals and i can't find one that looks like this. Serial number is 50514 05073. Any help would be very appreciated. Cheers

That is a 1958  50 HP. The very first V4 outboard motor and the progenitor of the V4, V6 & V8 series of Johnson and Evinrude outboards. That is a classic.

 

You can obtain the service manual at www.outboardbooks.com and find out much information and have a source of parts from the members of the Antique Outboard Club,  www.aomci.org
