Model: Model 40, Little Model 40 | Year: 1950
This rare, well maintained outboard is owned and cared for by Charles Palfreeman. Notice the 'T' at the end of the serial number. Charles points out that this indicated it was equipped with a tilting tiller which became standard on later forties. On more modern British Seagull outboards the 'T' indicates the outboard is equipped with a twist grip throttle. Be sure to view his other outboards: SD | FVP | LS
