  • 55 hp Nissan Value

    I am considering selling my 1986 55 hp Nissan (NS55B). The motor is in absolutely excellent condition. However, when I looked the motor up on the NADA website, it showed a value of around $3,500. Could this be anywhere close to right? Just seems very high to me (not that I would complain with $3,500)!!!

    Anyone have a good idea of what the motor might actually be worth?

    Re: 55 hp Nissan Value

    Book value is a couple of hundred. Parts are not available for it so it has no real value as a working engine, but piecing it out for parts could net you as much as $1500.00 to the right people over time.
    My answers are like Zen...It may not be the answer you want, but it is generally the answer you need.

    The 3 Rules:

    1) Look in your service manual first...Then ask me if it is correct.
    2) Understand that your desire to repair your engine does not mean that you have the ability to do so.
    3) If you are confused, take your engine into a dealer..Then let them be confused...At least, in theory, they sent someone to outboard 101.
