    Hello to all;
    Previous posts opined that this is a Scott-Atwater sold by Firestone. It does have the steel gas tank, w/ dents of course. Also has some fuel that’s been in there for an eon.

    About what year is it, and what HP?

    I can’t see a manufacturer plate or model number, but haven’t pulled the cover.

    I’d like to find a good home for it, despite the lack of a large fan base. Won’t see it scrapped, but time for it to go.
    I have it posted on the local CL for $30, w/ little interest. I hope providing info will help. It’s worth at least that in scrap. Heck, at $10 a pop, the black widow spiders in it make it worth at least $40!

    All opinions welcome.

    Many thanks and happy motoring.
    Alan

    Hi Alan,

    Yes; I’ve seen your Craigslist ad; I got the Voyager from you to pass on to another member a year or three ago. I’m over on the coast. Your Firestone is a late 40’s model….3.5 or 3.6HP single. I already have a couple….plus a genuine Scott version….and a Corsair version.

    Good running well made simple motors. I have the twin cylinder versions as well from that same vintage. The Firestone twin that I have here does not seem to have an ID plate on it either.

    There’s a nice list of Model/Years here:
