Default Man-U-Troll

Bought this trolling motor today. I've never seen one before. It's unique because it's hand pumped. Was wondering if someone could tell me when they were made. The company name is Universal Projects Inc Jacksonville Florida.

They came out in 1964. They originally sold for $42.50. They were called a Man-U-Troll.

I guess I should have read closer. I now see you had the name in the title.
