Recently acquired from a local estate sale is this: Vintage 1955 MERCURY Thunderbolt Mark 55 Toy 40HP Outboard Motor as shown in our photos. Notice the early motor cover with airplane style decal on the cowl.This is the first Mercury outboard that was made by K&O. It came from the Bernie Wager collection and he started to restore this great old Mark 55 and what you see is pretty nice so far however, when I pick it up it's way too light and most likely needs the internal parts.
I don't see any wiring but it still should make a nice winter project for a collector. Check all of our photos to be sure this listing meets your satisfaction and that you have the parts to finish this outboard motor. When complete this old Mercury Thunderbolt Mark 55 should make a nice outboard for someone's collection.
