Thumbs up Mercury Blueband 90hp is it any good

I am considering purchasing a 1979 model Mercury Blue Band 90hp outboard.
Can anyone please tell me if this was a good motor in its time. I expect to do a lot of work to this motor to get it up to scratch but is it worth all the time and money I will have to put into it.

And is it possible to buy parts for this motor.

Cheers and thanks in advance.

That's almost a 30 year old engine you want to renovate. Parts will be difficult to find and expensive. I guess it all depends on how cheap you're buying it for - and how much work you're gonna have to do to it. (would you buy a 30 year old car?) Sight unseen.... I can't even guess (though I wouldn't take it even if it were free).
