3.1 hp @ 4000 rpm     Ser. #2775
This is an example of the first Mercury model my father sold.  The "deluxe" feature on this motor is a conventional float carburetor instead of the more basic poppet valve type carb.  This motor was traded in to Grubb's Marine about 1962.  It was serviced and painted.  New old stock decals were installed.  It was put on display in the business for many years. I took it to the very first Antique Outboard Club meet I ever attended in 1969 and I have run it occasionally ever since.
