Elgin outboards retailed through Sears & Roebuck from 1946 through the early 1960's. Two companies provided outboards to Sears bearing the Elgin name West Bend, and Scott-McCulloch. The little 2hp West Bend made motors remained on sale the longest being offered through 1961. Elgin's were a budget motor retailing for about 20%-25% less than major brands of similar horsepower. The Green Elgin's of '46-'57 are one of the most common old outboards around.
