OUTBOARD MOTOR DISPLAY
Year: 1960 Name: Might Mite Model:
500 Serial Number: 871 H.P. 1.75
Overall size: 30“ H x 16“ W x 5“ D Weight: 21 1/2 pounds
is an actual 1960 outboard motor that was resurrected from a yard sale, garage or attic, and reconditioned into a stunning
and unusual display. All its external parts have been repainted, re-chromed and polished, and then mounted on a backboard
with a starter cord, spare prop and two cans of outboard oil adding that extra special touch. The backboard is what was used
to carry the motor and supplies while hiking to a favorite lakeside camping ground. The display is designed to be used standing
on the floor or when mounted on a wall providing versatility. It has taken literally hundreds of man hours to achieve these outstanding results.
It is intended for "Display
Only" and is not a running motor!

All Neptune outboards were built by the Muncie Gear Works of Muncie, Indiana from the mid-1930's until
1995. In 1957, the Neptune AA1 and AA 1A series outboard motors, were named the Mighty Mite,
and their tanks were painted maroon which is the color used in this display. It became one of America's most famous outboard
marques. Over the years these fine little engines became a historic American icon. They were based on a very simple inexpensive
design that was small and light weight. This 1.75 HP model dates from 1960, weighs only 17 pounds. The entire display weighs
21 1/2 pounds. The starter cord, spare prop, and two empty cans of outboard oil are included.
