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 FIBERGLASS CRUISER WITH AN INBOARD FACTORY PRODUCED MOTOR WITH A STERN DRIVE. THERE WERE A LOT OF "OUTBOARDS" WITH OPEN TRANSOM AND BOLT ON OUTBOARD MOTORS MADE THAT LOOKED CLOSE TO THIS MODEL THESE PRODUCED BY CHRIS CRAFT, AND THOMPSON //////// BUT NO INBOARD STERN DRIVE CORSAIR MODEL, LIKE THESE WHEN CHRIS CRAFT JOINTLY VENTURED WITH THE THOMPSON BOAT COMPANY TO PRODUCE A INBOARD STERN DRIVE 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 AND MODIFIED HULL DESIGN TO A COLD MOULDED PLANK LOOKING HULL NOW THAT THEY OWNED THE RIGHTS TO IT AND WENT BACK WITH THE STRAIGHT SHAFT INBOARD MOTOR DESIGN WITH THE 19 FOOT THROUGH 22 FOOT CORSAIR MODELS WITH A LARGER V8 AND MODIFIED THE HULL DESIGN BY THEIR ENGINEERS AND PARTED WAYS WITH THE THOMPSON BOAT COMPANY IN 1967 IT TOOK THAT LONG (2) YEARS FOR THEM TO SEPARATE FROM THEM.. THESE BOTH ARE VERY COMPLETE WITH ONLY A FEW MINOR TRIM ITEMS MISSING ON THE PROTOTYPE #1 ITS ALL THERE the running condition is unknown on the prototype but looks like the day it was stored no oil leaks or anything out of ordinary I believe there is no issues with the motor and seems to be complete like the rest of the boat . SEE PIC /// AS HULL NUMBER ONE HAS HAD A RESTORATION STARTED BEFORE . I PURCHASED IT BUT WAS VERY GLAD TO GET IT AND DROVE 2800 MILES TO GET IT. that boat was stored inside covered for 30 plus years the original hull gel coat I believe is more than salvageable and could be back to shine which was my original intention along with the interior and chrome trim .. 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 TOGETHER BUT IT IS ALL THERE BY LOOKING AT IT IN ALL THE BOXE, GOING BACK TOGETHER WILL BE AN EASY TASK, BUT SEEMS TO BE ALL COMPLETE THE ORIGINAL PROTOTYPE WILL 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 GAUGES, 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 MINO, MINOR MISSING TRIM BADGES AND PARTS FOR THE PROTOTYPE CAN BE FOUND ON LINE AT INEXPENSIVE PRICES NOTHING THAT WILL PREVENT USAGE AND RESTORATION. 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 PROTOTYPE .
