Description

THIS IS A RARE OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE SOMETHING NO ONE ELSE HAS OR CAN HAVE. THE FIRST PROTOTYPE AND FIRST HULL PRODUCTION IN A 16 FOOT RUN ABOUT CRUISER WITH AN INBOARD INSTALLED FACTORY PRODUCED MOTOR. THERE WERE A LOT OF OUTBOARDS PRODUCED BY CHRIS CRAFT, BUT WHEN CHRIS CRAFT JOINTLY VENTURED WITH THE THOMPSON BOAT COMPANY TO PRODUCE A INBOARD OF THIS SIZE AT 16 FEET, IT WAS SHORT LIVED THOMPSON WENT INTO RECEIVERSHIP SO THE PROJECT NEVER CAME OFF THE GROUND OTHER THAN THESE (2) . BY THE TIME CHRIS CRAFT BOUGHT THERE WAY OUT THEY SCRUBBED THE 16 FOOT INBOARD KEPT THE MODIFIED HULL DESIGN NOW THAT THEY OWNED THE RIGHTS TO IT AND WENT WITH THE 19 FOOT THROUGH 22 FOOT CORSAIR WITH A LARGER V8 AND MODIFIED THE DESIGN BY THEIR ENGINEERS AND PARTED WAYS WITH THE THOMPSON COMPANY.THESE BOTH ARE VERY COMPLETE WITH ONLY A FEW MINOR TRIM ITEMS MISSING ON THE PROTO TYPE #1 ITS ALL THERE the running condition is unknown but looks like the day it was stored no oil leaks or anything out of ordinary SEE PIC /// AS HULL NUMBER ONE HAS HAS A RESTORATION STARTED BEFORE I AQUIRED BUT WAS VERY GLAD TO GET IT AND DROVE 2800 MILES TO GET IT. that boat was stored inside covered for years the gelcoat I believe is more than salvageable and could be back to shine which was my original intention. THE MOTOR WAS BEEN SENT OUT AND COMPLETELY REBUILT STILL SHRINK WRAPPED FROM REBUILD AND ALL OTHER NEW PARTS TO GO WITH THE POWER TRAIN. BUT IT IS A STARTING OF A BASKET CASE PUTTING THE POWER TRAIN AND DRIVE ASSEMBLY TOGETHE, GOING BACK TOGETHER WILL BE AN EASY TASK, BUT SEEMS TO BE ALL COMPLETE THE ORIGINAL WOULD MAKE A GREAT BLUEPRINT TO FINISH HULL #1 AS IT IS UNMOLESTED AND A GREAT GUIDE FOR THE OTHER ONE. YOU CAN RESTORE BOTH AND HAVE THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS.BOTH OF THESE CANDIDATES WILL BE EASY RESTORATION PROJECTS SINCE ALL MAJOR PARTS ARE ALL THERE GUAGES, INTERIORS, AND DASHBOARD, EXTERIOR WINDSHIELDS, GLASS AND TRIMS ON BOTH BOATS ARE STILL ASSEMBLED AS ORIGINAL AND READY TO DIS ASSEMBLE FOR A COMPLETE RESTORATION OR JUST PUT IT BACK TOGETHER AND POLISH IT UP CLEAN THE INTERIOR UP AND USE I, DRIVE LINES AND ONE WITH ALL COMPLETE TRIM PARTS AND ONE WITH 98% OF EVERYTHING THE MINOR MISSING PARTS CAN BE FOUND ON LINE AT INEXPENSIVE PRICES. I AM ALMOST READY TO START ON THE RESTORATION OF HULL # (1) BAG AND TAG EVERYTHING AND FINISH IT UP TO ITS ORIGINAL GLORY AND THEN START ON THE ORIGINAL PROTO TYPE. I CALL THESE BOATS BROTHER AND SISTE, , I CAN AND WOULD DO THE RESTORATIONS FOR YOU IF REQUEST BUT THAT CAN BE DISCUSSED AFTER PURCHASE.
