6hp @ 4000 RPM  Serial Number 261353
This motor was offered to satisfy requests for a 6hp motor for waters that had a 6hp limit.  It was simply a relabeled 7.5hp Merc with a limit placed on how far the speed control could be advanced.  The ID plate has an unusual orange-red background.  It was also equipped with a 3 blade prop.  They did not sell well.  I purchased this motor in 2004 from a Maryland collector.  I supplied a prop like original and lower cowls that were missing.  I got it running well.  The fuel tank has a brush paint job of the wrong shade of green.
