Presented is a magnificently restored 1924 Evinrude ELTO
Light Rudder Twin Rowboat Motor that is strictly for display. It is for those who appreciate the restoration as a form of
industrial Folk Art. Hundreds of hours were spent in cleaning, stripping, painting, chroming, polishing replacing decals, and then
reassembling everything into a finished motor. The end result is a nostalgic display
of Americana as an expression of manufacturing art.
of complete old engines is limited, and the restoration labor intensive so that the supply of the finished product is very
limited. For example, we have only one example of this wonderful old outboard motor
in collector quality condition available.
The design is by Ole Evinrude in 1921, and it is the motor that was the rebirth of his second outboard
career. It is referred to as the "silvery" Elto Rudder twin. The motor is stationary and the boat is turned by using a rudder
much like an inboard vessel. Cooling is by water forced in the rudder and up to the power head. Ignition is via battery and
an Atwater-Kent timer under the flywheel. Fuel is supplied by a poppet style mixing valve, not really a true carburetor. A
very novel design for its time. Credit engineeratoddjobmotors.com
It is intended for "Display Only". Not Running!

Evinrude is one of the most enduring names in outboard motors and celebrated its 100th Anniversary in 2008. The patriarch
of the name, Ole, and his wife and partner Bess, were in and out of the business a number of times before Bess succumbed to
ill health in 1933 and passed on. Ole, unable to recover from his loss, died 14 months later at age 57. His son Ralph, took
over the reins and became the new president of OMC. Many advances were made during Ralph's stewardship and after WW II, the
company enjoyed the boom in boating that followed. After 50 years at the helm, Ralph Evinrude retired as chairman of OMC.
Ralph died in Stuart, FL in 1986 and leaves his second wife, the actress Frances Langford, to follow in the boating tradition
with a large yacht and marina. The company breaks the billion dollar mark in sales after his death. But after this milestone,
the impact of increased government pollution regulations increased costs while sales were declining. This ended with the company
filing for bankruptcy in 2000. Seeing an opportunity, Bombardier of Canada acquired the Evinrude assets and the company was
reborn in 2001, and is operating successfully today.
