Not a mercury, evinrude, yamaha, suzuki, but a Johnson 55$500(Chanute, KS)
I have an 1979 Johnson 55HP. I just took it off my 16ft alum boat. It runs good. Just replaced starter, water pump, and had seals put in the lower unit last summer. The only reason I am selling it is because I bought a bigger motor. This motor does not have factory trim, but I have a CMC 130 power tilt that I would consider selling with the motor for an additional 400.00 (cmc is on ebay right now). I could pallet ship, but I would expect shipping to be in the $200 range. It does come with controls. Any questions give me a call, Mike @ 620-212-2866.
