    This was OMC’s first factory racing engine since the 1930s, and marked their official re-entry into factory supported outboard racing. We purchased a few of these over the past couple years and are finally getting around to restoring them. With Laura Tiger.

    As far as I can observe, Jimbo raced everything that OMC made at some point. X-115, Strangler V4, CCC V6, Mod 50, Rotary and V8.

    I sure remember when those motors showed up. All of a sudden Mercury was not the only one in the game.

    In the 1966 Orange Bowl 9 hour two brothers from West Palm Beach ran a motor that looked like a prototype of those motors. They won the single engine class.

    Ah yes..........the Golden Meteor..........I think the civilian version was 90HP.........the GT cowling had scallops that paralleled the cylinder banks. That meant the lower pan and mid section die castings were different. You would have thought that OMC engineering leadership would have made them common? It's probably an indicator that there still was "2 camps" at OMC in the 60s. Expensive difference. As a kid, I thought the Golden Meteor was like the Saturn V rocket.......a giant! Twenty years later and the V8 made the Meteor look like a kicker motor.
