THE 1957 MERCURY MARK 55E
HOW TO ORDER
Alterscale is pleased to announce the production of the next model outboard in its vintage series, the 1957 Mercury Mark 55! $189.97 + $11. S&H. This is a LIMITED COLLECTOR'S EDITION! The model has beeen produced in two color variations: Quicksilver Green cowl with tan lower unit and Sarasota Blue cowl with tan lower unit. The Quicksilver Green version is limited to 500 models; and the Sarasota Blue is limited to 275 models. Both color options will be in substantially lower quantities that our recent Mark 75H model. Now you can add one of the most classic vintage 1950's outboard models ever made to your collection. The model will be in 1:8 scale, a full 6 inches tall. Detail like this has never been seen in a scale model outboard. The fabulous four-cylinder powerhead is duplicated in every detail; a miniature medallion is on the face plate; the pull cord handle and choke pull are on the top cowl. The pull cord actually "pulls" and auto retracts just like the real outboard. Soon it can be on the shelf in your den!
How did we do it? Mercury Marine has once again opened its archive of stored outboards for Alterscale's technical experts and model makers. We measured every bolt, screw and casting of an actual 1957 Mark 55. The clamp tightening grip even has the correct molded ridges. The propeller is painted, just the way they came from the factory. And yes, of course, the "wrap around" cowl segment removes to display the powerhead and the model has an operating electric propeller! The stand houses batteries which operate the propeller action. Get ready to enjoy the memories!
You could expect no less from Alterscale.
