I got this motor as a part of estate.
It was in storage for a while.
It looks great for the age.
Motor , tiller handle, prop all turn freely.
Forward and reverse engage properly.
Compression is 110psi.
It came with 2 original L-9J plugs (NOS).
Original 6 G can included.

Found this info on web:

"This was a limited production racing engine incorporating a special racing lower unit with forward-neutral-reverse shifting capability."

It did not have spark.
I ordered new coil , put it in, tuned up points, disassembled and cleaned carburator, put new LU lube.
Motor started with first turn.
Runs great, forward\reverse engages properly, piss jets run fine.
I made some water can tuning based on my OMC knowledge (this is my first Mercury, I am OMC guy), so it might need some fine tuning when it is on the water.

I added picture of the motor running,
I have some small videos of it running, if you are really interested I can email them.

Now this is RUNNING vintage collectible motor as far I know.
