It's an old-timer, for sure! I think Doc Frankenmerc has one similar.

Yes, price is really good!
I will know tomorrow if I will be able to get it - there are two more contenders .....
I would like to get in touch with Doc Frankenmerc..........
6 HP would be perfect for my FeatherCraft 1960 Skippy S12C dinghy.
Thank you for the info guys!

well, as it turned out this is NOT the end of the story!!
Thanks to tip from ed-mc2 I am getting KD-4 off Craigslist that looks very promising - it's complete for once, has not run in years but the owner thinks that it is restorable. According to a serial number motor was made in 1947. I don't know anything about this motor other than looks incredibly COOL :)
Need to get a parts list so I can see what this thing looks like inside B)

If anyone else is looking for one of these motors-or other Mercs from this time period-I have a bunch of them that I am looking to sell.
