Description

No RESERVE - Must sell my original 1959 18' Chris Craft Capri. I bought it from the original owners son in 1999. 10 years ago the hull and motor were completely gone thru and restored. The entire boat was re-bunged and is super tight. In 2007 the original 283 engine was fixed/rebuilt and restored and only has a hand full of hours since. Comes with the original trailer, a copy of the plans, parts catalog, and operation manual and many extra parts and original pieces. With a little bit of time or money this boat could be an award winning show boat. The boat books out at $38,300 - I moved and it will no longer fit in my garage.
This 59 year old boat is being sold as is (please see the pictures) I think it needs a new oil gauge pressure line run,the steering wheel horn button could be repainted,the original back seat has a small split in it, and the hub caps could have dents taken out of them. What is not original - I had (2) 20,000 gallon bilge pumps installed. It has a new gas pump and filter (originals are included with other spare parts in the sale). It also has a airplane throttle control which allows minor adjustments making it much easier to plane on the water.
Own a piece of history - this is the same model that is featured on the cover of the book Wood through Water and in numerous movies. Please ask any questions prior to bidding. Thanks Sean - feel free to contact me with any questions @303-906-1616.
