Fun old video (mark25)

Post by LarryR »

This one was on the Pine Tree Site underneath a lot of cobwebs.

Note the all red top on the mark25 icon_thumbup.gif . Some of you :eek: have suggested that mine is not an original paint style since the rewind top isn't white. Speaking of white, do you suppose Elmer proposely flooded his old ads with male blond wunderkinds :?:

Reminds me of FastJeff's burgundy tower on his motor. Johnson colors look quite DIFFERENT too.

I've seen three now that I am quite sure wore born all Sunset Orange, although most were refrigerator white on the top.

Hmmm... Are those burgundy "Pacemaker" outboards?

I thought we had pictures of the remanufactured monochromatic painted line of Mercurys branded, "Pacemaker". I think Steve Stevenson in Neenah, WI has some 4x6" and 8x10" color glossy photos of them and they look just like the engines in this movie.

I hadn't heard of these "pacemaker" engines. Maybe mine is one of them. who knows. :?:
It was formerly owned by JW in Georgia.
In any case, there was no sign of white paint underneath and the red looked original. I can't say that it wasn't painted red during a top level "remanufacture".
I think the white looks goofy, always did. Lots of folks paint the tops tan; although not correct, I think it looks better than white.
