condition: like new
make / manufacturer: Goodyear
model name / number: Sea Bee

Beautifully restored 1948 Goodyear Sea Bee 3 horsepower outboard motor(Model #025-3563)made by Gale motors in Galesburg,Illinois.At that time,Gale Motors was the third division of OMC(Evinrude/Johnson)and continued thru the early sixties.
A couple small dents in the gas tank were removed by air pressure and then the complete motor was sanded and painted to correct colors.Everything on this motor is in like new condition.The original I.D.plate with I.D.number,starting instruction,and oil/gas mixing is still on the motor below the carrying handle.Even the lower motor cowls(covers)are on this motor which are almost always missing from outboard motors of this era.This motor is complete with no cracks,or welds and flywheel and prop turn over with strong compression.Motor was ran in barrel of water before restoration and still may run today,but I am selling it as a display and showpiece motor.In my opinion,the 1948-49 Goodyear Sea Bee motors were the nicest looking outboard. motors ever made and even futuristic looking for their era.This is a rare motor,and you would be hard pressed to find this motor in this condition anywhere.This beautiful and unique motor would be a tasteful edition to a professional office,retail store,summer home,restaurant/bar,man cave,etc.This is a great piece of nautical/industrial history when the U.S.A.dominated the manufacturing world.
The price of this exceptional motor is $750.00.The custom made whale tail outboard motor stand is INCLUDED.Cash only.
I am retired ,live on the n.w.side of Ft.Wayne and can show during reasonable hours.Will respond to all serious replies with name and phone number only.NO TEXTING.Will take down ad when sold.Have a good one..Bob
