The current motor is actually a little too new,it's a 1968.I have a period correct 1963 that need exstensive rebuildiing,have all the parts but is time and labor intensive. The 1968 is perfect,original spark plugs and perfect compression.It will do till I get the 1963 redone. I can email pics to someone who knows how to post. Robert

Robert , one of my fondest memories was a couple mile race between this , with me and a buddy in it and a G3 with a 6 cyl Merc. Don't know what HP just that it was a 6. He had the speed to get past me but it was on a twisty turning little creek maybe 60 to 100 feet wide. Every time he tried to get past me , we would go into a turn and my wake would get him in the rear quarter and he'd have to slow down and get back inside my wake again. Being a Formula dealer you should appreciate this pic. In case you can't make it out...It's a Thunderbird

Robert's "new" 63 looks like it was hermetically sealed for about the last 40 years. I doubt I'll ever see another G-3 this nice.

Funny thing it has a 40 hp cowling,but it's a 60. Surely this doesn't mean that T2x would cheat Just kidding,Rich.
