Na more I reckon, nice second hand engines in the 60-90hp bracket are fairly hard to find. I reckon £1500, or possibly even more. Its worth what someone is prepared to pay for it at the time...When I was looking I would have paid £1500 for that engine as there were very few about!

Its a better engine than that. But the Chrysler isn't worth £1500 +.

More than double if you sell it via ebay. Reserve of £1500. You'll get it easily as long as you make the description as detailed as possible and include your mobile number on it-it's hard to find a good outboard 2nd hand. I sold my ancient blueband on there for £525 a few months back and I couldn't even show it running as it was off the boat.
