Re-powering these boats can be done fairly easily with newer OMC sterndrive powerheads and lower units which are fairly plentiful and relatively affordable. Any of the GM engines from the 120-4, 225-V6 Buick, or any of the 283-305-307-327-350-400 Small Block Chevies are good candidates. Even the Chevy V6's from the 400-800 Series can be used with good results. Most of these alternatives would not significantly alter the original look, but would extend the useable life of the vessel and provide added reliability.

if you really love the boat like I do mine, you might want to see about upgrading it, it is a lot of work but worth it in the end. I have a 64 and when my outdrive goes out I am going to upgrade it to newer stuff. it takes away from the original look of the boat some, but makes it easier to get parts for and you will get more trouble free use from it.
