Nice find. Is that all of it or have you begun to disassemble it? I just got my son's '66. I bought it for him 30 years ago been sitting in his garage for 25 years ata least.
Like the last post says get the manual and parts books, helps a lot. They're all similar but enough different you'll want the books. I have a manual covering 1959 to 1966 lists models: Bobcat, pacer, scat, super 10, model 165 & Hummer. If you determine one of these models will work for you, let me know I'll send a copy of the wiring diagram.

The first thing you need to do is go to the 'How to Restore' section and read up on the literature for your model. After that read up online about how a two-stroke motor works (unless you already know). Then purchase a Parts book and a Service manual for your model. Reprints are available at reasonable prices. If you're just attempting to see if it runs score a wiring diagram and apply the knowledge you already have with cars. Once you've gone through (some/all) of these steps you'll know the right questions to ask the members.
Best of Luck ...and again, Welcome!
