This afternoon we received an e-mail from a viewer in the south to let us know about this rare Cadillac powered 1956 20′ Century Coronado. According to the Century Boat Club website, only 240 Coronado’s were produced in 1956, and the original Cadillac powered versions are considered by many to be the rarest of the rare for that model year.
The Coronado is being offered for auction on Saturday, April 28th by Wayne Evans Auction Co., Inc. in Columbus, Georgia, you can go directly to their website by clicking here. From the photographs the boat appears to be fairly complete, but some further research may have to be done regarding the tri-carb set-up on this Cadillac engine to confirm if it’s one of those Cal Connell specials.
