    Default value of never used or started 1971 mercury kiekhaefer 20 hp thunderbolt outboard motor

    This motor has been stored indoors since purchased in 1971. Just wondering what it might be worth.

    what kind of shape is the wiring in?...take the small wires between two fingers and kind of roll the wire and see if insulation comes off and exposes sometimes corroded wires..

    you could buy that motor and a good 14 foot john boat and a trailer in 1971 for 1000 bucks..

    if that motor has not been turned over in 44 years then its going to need a lot of attention....carbs...wiring..all gas lines etc just to start with..no telling what you will find inside..it would be an interesting project for someone but even if it runs i would not rely on it before a lot of inspection and lubrication...to me it may be worth a couple hundred bucks if i was interested..you may get more for it parting it out.

    just my opinion.

    I'd pay $350.00 to $400 easy.
