johnson motor

8 posts in this topic

Does anyone know how to figure out the year of a johnson motor by the model & serial #'s? It's an older 5 1/2 hp. motor...I'm thinking it's a late 50's - early 60's, model #CD-12, serial #1203471. Any help would be appreciated.

I tried www.iboats.com but no help there. Maybe I'm looking in the wrong place.

ACCORDING TO PETER HUNN'S BOOK `THE OLD OUTBOARD HANDBOOK' YOUR CD-12 WAS MADE IN 1955. SO YOUR ESTIMATE WAS RIGHT ON

If it's a '55 Johnson, the colors should be a dark red (maroon) over an off-white or cream.

Nope Clayton, it's more of a faded green color.
Anyone know how much this motor would be worth? It runs like a charm.
Thanks for the input guys.

I thought that faded green (blue/green) was 1950s vintage Evinrude -- But, how would I know,I'm color blind?

I do remember by father-in-law running a 50s era Johnson 5.5 that was two-tone, with the red/cream design I mentioned. But, it might have been later 50s. We had a '57 Evinrude 7.5 that was all one color--the green/blue.
