        Hi,
        I like your thinking. I am new to this forum, but I collect vintage formula outboards, and I am always interested to talk anything formlua. Do you have one or quite a few, I personally am looking to add number 9 to my collection. I like the deep V hulls, and I am always interested in buying any V-hull formula especially outboards.

            I bought a 1974 Formula 180 recently. Still a bit of work to do after a failed first day on the water.

              hope you all have better luck with yours. i purchased one that seems to have everything going wrong and i haven't put 20 hrs on it in two years of ownership!

              latest is an apparent leak in one of the two fuel tanks (31pc)

              getting all to familiar with pulling the engines!

                I have been doing some searching on hear about Thunderbirds and don't find much. I just bought a 1978 Thunderbird and am interested in learning more about them so, I too would be interested in a Formula Forum.


                It's a little quiet in this thread.

                      Re: 1978 FORMULA 255 - fully restored

                      I have a 100% restored 1978 Formula 255 with a completely rebuilt Ford 351 and a 4 Barrel Holley. My father bought the boat new and I purchased it from him four years ago. A vintage Formula forum would be great!!

                        Audemars, your story sound familiar. Is this your boat here? http://www.formulaboats.com/vintage_...DreamBoat.aspx

                        Post some pics!!!

                        I'm guessing you're into watches, too, by your screen name.

                              Where in Indiana? What are the details? I don't have a Formula yet, but I'm keeping my eyes out for a nice pre-'70 233 with the teak trim inside the gunwhales to restore.
