Built on Lake Hopatcong, this 1948 Barnes Craft sedan is the only one known to exist. She is now back at Lake Hopatcong after spending some time out wondering around the country.
She is now parked at Katz’s Marina awaiting her time in the chamber of perfection at Katz’s. “Shangra La” sports a 1948 Chrysler dash, a Chris Craft M engine and lots of history.
The interior has copper in place of inside planks. The owner was in the plumbing supply business and had access to copper sheets, the roof of his house was and is copper, now a nice shade of green.
We will be updating the progress of this preservation/restoration from time to time. Our hats of to Katz’s for saving a Lake Hopatcong Treasure.
