    Why people are calling it a basket case, I think it’s just a misunderstanding. In your description of the motor the last thing you said is he took it apart and cleaned it. So, it sounded like it’s a bunch of parts, aka basket case. Sounds like a nice motor. I can’t help with a price because mine was free. They range.

    By your description it sounded like the motor was apart and in pieces. Any motor that is delivered in a “basket” is a basket case. Obviously it was a misunderstanding.

    I’m guessing that where you live a motor like that doesn’t turn up very often.Here in WV motors of that vintage in any condition are very rare.If you want it buy it.Buy the time you travel to someplace to pick one up or have one shipped you’ll have at least added at least $100 to the price of a cheaper one.This one you’ve seen in person and know the seller,also worth dollars. The picture below is from my ICloud acct.I posted it just to see if it could be done.Try posting by copying and pasting the image.

    1922-23. I’d pay $400 for that if it was local.

    Pictures speak 1000 words. Yeah, that’s a very nice one. Condition is great, lots of nickel playing still there, looks clean. If it runs that’s probably a decent price. You mentioned wanting to restore it I think? What’s left to do it looks great, maybe a dust off or a little polish and elbow grease but it doesn’t want much.

    Excellent example of a 1923. I wouldn’t touch a thing. The decal isn’t correct, but no one sells the right one so it’s tough to criticize it for that. The coil might need attention if you intend to run it.

    Thanks for all the help. I pick the motor up Monday or Tuesday next week. It looks even better in person as opposed to the pictures.

    Excellent Robert! Enjoy it. Now that you have a few antique outboards you should consider joining the club, if you haven’t already.

    Above is an issue I have experienced more that once.
    I have posted to different video links from my you tube
    channel yet only the first one comes up. That is what
    I’m seeing anyway.
