Question about Boating
Near as I can tell, it's a 1979. As of 1980, Johnson/Evinrude used two LETTERS at the end of the model number to designate the year. (See attached) Your model number ends in a number and letter (1A) which leads me to believe it's earlier than 1980. Prior to 1980, the last two numbers of the serial number were the year. That's how I surmised yours is a 1979, by the last two of the serial. G02651879
Hope this helps.
