My uncle Bob Stoltz was a Small Kiekhaefer Mercury dealer up til Stoltz Craft stopped making runabouts... So early 50's until about 1965. My brother tells me that Bob would put whatever motor the customer wanted in the hole on the 25's. If they wanted an Evinrude, that's what they got. I remember seeing an engine in one of them in the 70's but I don't remember what kind.
BTW: if anyone can find ANY info on the Stoltz Runabouts of the 50's and 60's please let me know. One thing I do know about them is that they built a bunch and shipped them to Calgary where another manufacturer added a windshield, completed them and put their name tag on them. Don't know what name that was..... I think i need to call my cousin again.
