Default value of this boat motor..???

I have this motor on a boat/trailer that im looking to sell. Boat is junk. The motor is a 1956 johnson seahorse 30 hp. From what I have found online it was made only 1 year and is somewhat of a rarity. It does run excellent but dies out after 20sec or so of runing. I'm not looking to repair it, just looking to sell locally. Any boaters out there have a clue on value...???

A collector would love to get their hands on that . As for not running , they are simple to figure out . Call a wooden bost restorer or someone who loves the old wooden boats . They will be able to give you a value . A guess ? Maybe 500 bucks or less . Its a buyers markiet , but I think if you hold onto it and find the right place , you could get some money for it . It certainly looks in good shape .

A few links to start referencing .

Wow, when did you get that? It sure is in good shape for its age, sounds like the running issue is the fuel pump, the motor I just got did the same thing. Not sure what it would be worth though but if you scan CL you will see that outboard motors pull a high price tag.

yeah I see that 70 something 25 hp are going for 1000 on CL!!!!

I traded my neighbor a wanger paint sprayer for the boat, trailer and motor.

I really just wanted the trailer to build

Just checked compression, both cyl. are reading 105 psi. and to try and pull this thing with the plugs in is INSANE! I need a battery hooked up FTW! hehehehhe
