Default Rarity of a Jensen Model 80?

I would like to know the rarity of a Jensen model 80 twin cylinder occillating marine type engine. It was a 90 degree vee configuration with a single throttle control/reversing lever. As far as I know it was sold as a loose engine only made for the radio control boating hobbiests.

I don't think that I have seen a model 80. Can you post any pictures?

you should contact Jensen with your questions. They are still in bussiness and I have gotten historical info from them in the past. They have always been willing to help.

Steve has a picture of the 80 on his website, but I think he sold it.

80's were built in 1959 for marine use, mostly only sold as engine only if you have one with a Jensen boiler you may have the only one ever built
