K&B 3.5cc outboard

I recently purchased this outboard for $77.00. I am wondering if i got a good deal or what? I plan to build a WOF 3.5cc tunnel hull and will post pics when done:

Even if it doesn't run like new, disassembling cleanig and polishing should make it worth a good deal more.
And of course, reassembly

Boy, that puppy is vintage! I do have one of those lower units sitting in my basement, just the halves, never used. Later on down the road you can do some updating to it like replacing the carb. Most parts should still be available for it but the drive may be the hardest piece to find as it is a lot different from the newer versions.
