It has not a real engine. For display only.

Length overall 30”

In very good condition
I picked up the exact same model on Fleabay several years ago. Made in the far east somewhere, flimsy piece of crap---.

For the Higgins nuts ...

Vintage 1950's Classic Higgins 17' Sport Speedster by Sterling Models wood kit

"For your consideration is this 1950's Sterling Models "Higgins 17' Sport Speedster" boat display kit. The kit came from an estate sale and is an open box but appears to be complete. It also includes the instructions, and metal hardware such as the steering wheel, the box itself shows a good amount of shelf wear. The model also includes the original Higgins decal (see picture) but I have no idea if a nearly 60 year old decal would still be okay. The model is designed so that an electric motor can be added to the boat."

While it may not be my place to say I really feel this thread should be re-titled “the enabler thread”.
