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.
If you restore it, post pictures of the project
