Older motors are usually less. Has to be priced right enough. Is it rebuildable? Including controls,prop,etc.?LU Good? Pretty much has to be a good deal in case it has to be rebuilt or someone wants one to build a race motor with it. Lots out there for $2500 or less. TFF/BBC/Craigslist/Boat Trader. See where price point is on one like you've got. It still cost almost as much to build an older one as a new one. Parts & machine work isn't cheaper because it's older & parts actually can be more because of availability issues. A running 91 Merc 200 around $1500-2000. A running 94 Merc 200 $1700-2800. All controls around $150-250. I have a running rebuildable 1994' 200 Vindicator that I'd be happy to get $2500 for. 1 cylinder at 95,5 cylinders at 102-112. Estimates to completely rebuild from $3800-4700. 2005-2010 motor running with controls range from $6400 to over $9000. So therein lies the problem. Sell mine & spend 6 to 9K or spend 5K rebuild & still have a 22yr old motor????
Sorry for the long post but I send good luck wishes for you to get em sold.
