the ※1)first outboard prototype was developed
  by combining the Tohatsu ※2)T42C 1.2hp engine for the sprayer, with an American made lower unit. This prototype was used to develop into ※3)second outboard prototype using the dealer’s precise specification requests, which would later become the base design for the “OB” series.

After modifications to make their original motor suitable for mass production, Tohatsu released the ※4) “OB” in 1956, the first domestic outboard for the Japanese consumer market.
