      What I'm looking for is a good vintage stock F engine. I'm not the best at the models, etc. just looking to complete the boat, drive it, and show it.

      Thanks,
      Tom

          Frank sold it a fellow in Georgia a while back, it was a nice engine but not one of the originals. Doug sold another look alike to a fellow in Louisiana, not my brother, last year. Alan contributed parts for both.

            $25K to $30K...Yikes.

            26 production units... Did they build additional tower housings and gear cases?

                I believe Frank Erion has another 75 H. Don't know if he would sell it or not.

                  My brother has two but not for sale. Tom the mod motor is not a 75H. It has a 55H foot and an after market mid section, no cowls. I sold an engine with a speedmaster for and 75 block to Brandon J. Doug built a clone our of a Mark 78 and sold it to Fred in LA.

                    The 75 H motors are like factory 68 Hemi Cuba’s and Darts, only about 60 of one and 55 of the other were made, but there are and were more of these racing than original. I think gentleman wants or maybe wants a clone is good.

                      Yes, there were extra towers and units sold. Between prototypes and production there was about an extra 50 or more towers and feet made to be replacement parts or for people to make their own 75Hs from their own blocks and such. I have the correct tower, foot, correct KA-6A carbs (only made for 75H), and I have a line on one of the flywheels (has an additional mark for Alky). There are only a few real serial number Mark 75H blocks, of which I probably will never have one, but don't need one. Mine will be completely real other than the block not having the correct serial number.

                      The other route is to get a slightly later Speedmaster or Super Speedmaster, on a custom tower and a Mark 75, 75A, 78, 78A powerhead and have fun for a lot less. I have one like the one pictured above, except mine has a Speedmaster (one year only) lower unit.
