Default Does anyone recognise this drive?

Hi guys, this is my first post here! Looking at buying a boat that has a very strange mercury outdrive setup. Looks to be a model 2 transom assembly, possibly a tr top box, and Speedmaster lower. Can anyone shed an light from these pictures?

Also is anyone familiar with a "Tunnel Craft Eliminator" hull?

Edit - can't post pictures thehulltruth.com/boating-forum/1056239-tunnel-craft-eliminator-anyone-know-pics-inside.html has them posted.

Is it a Super Speed Master Version of the Mercruiser II drive - Early 60's?

I'm really not sure. The strange things I haven't been able to place are viewable in the tht thread. The transom shield is a through bolt design, from what I've found so far Merc only has this design with the model 2. The upper is also finned, which doesn't seem to be normal.

On the sides of the upper it has "mercury", but on the rear it is "Kiekhaefer mercury".

Yeah this one is on a tunnel, with the height of the drive it would just about be a surface piercing drive.
