TOPIC: 1962 or 63 HydroSwift

1962 or 63 HydroSwift 6 months 3 weeks ago #134233

My buddy gave me this 1962 Hydro-swift its a real barn find, his grandpa kept it under a car-port and wrapped up in a bunch of tarps and a boat cover. it looks like it has a mercruiser 1 stern drive I haven't found the engine id plate yet but the manufacture plate states its 100 hp, GM block.
it came with a buunch of cool vintage stuff swim wear, a vintage depth finder, a couple diffrent pitched props and a 9 hp trolling motor that looks brand new even though its a 1965.

I am a bit confused on ordering parts.

but I will be replacing hoses and belts, the water pump impeller and the grease in the lower unit. I have a buddy that know more about boats than I do and I also ordered a repair manual.

any advice is welcome

Wow - what a great time capsule to find and save! I remember having a skin diver wet suit top like that. Things look in great shape. Sorry I don't have helpful information, but the experts will. Congratulations on your find. What an amazing package of extras! The little outboard alone is a great find. As far as those props looking new. I have 3 similar vintage merc props and I spun the hub out of one due to drying and deteriorating of the rubber hub. You can hit redline instantly when that happens. Good luck with all!
