    Guys,
    While I was surfing thru some pictures on a site I found on line I came across this photo ! Never knew Western Auto contracted Mercury to build it and wondered if any of you have ever seen a prototype of it or an actual motor ?

    Back when I was a kid I collected many of the K&O model outboards but never saw anything like this ! It resembles one of the K&O’s except for the size, If you look at the scale next to it, it’s much bigger @ 17″ tall !

    The guys that collect and restore the toy motors used rough ones to make some models that were never built. This might be one of them.

    Nothing rough about that one!

    It’s a fine piece of engineering and an excellent example of what can be done! ☺

    Lovely job,but the ruler showing the size is in mm not inches. Converting from mm. makes it about 5 3/4 inches overall.

    Good eye Monte! I thought K+O’s were smaller than this one.

    170 mm would be about 6.7″.

    Guys,
    Thanks for all the comments ! And Monte very good catch on the MM scale, my bad for not seeing that! Also on the distance up from the skeg bringing it to about 5 3/4″ height !

    But no-one has commented on it being a reality, or mentioned hearing / seeing that Mercury even considered producing a 6cylinder for the Wizard line ? I’m sure Western Auto would have loved having something like this to add the their line of Outboards !

    As for the lower mid section being from a Mk 20, not too sure that would be the case as it most likely would have been from a Mk50/55 full shifting unit ? Just sayin !

    Thanks again for all the great comments
