Looks like a survivor to me.
Well worth getting going. You may expect a bit more than what you have listed but they are good runners for sure.
May want to look for a complete parts or donor motor or for parts on Ebay? They made those for about a zillion years.

That's a good price for a motor with an excellent reputation. You should be able to get it going easily assuming it hasn't been abused.

They were strong little motors for the rating. I had a '62 model and ran it for years.

I'd do what I could to find the parts, IMO they are great little engines, fast for the size for sure.
