Meet the latest barn fresh barn find from longtime fellow Woody Boater Don Hardy of McCall Boat Works. You may recall Dons other barn finds, like the pink Hemi U22, and the mountain barn find Barrel Back that just won at Tahoe, or Twinn Finn the stunning 1958 Chris Craft Continental. Well, he has done it again. This specific 1961 has it all, and is about to undergo a full preservation for the Tahoe 2014 show deadline.
Don had found the continental earlier this year, but just picked it up from its home in the barn since 1972 in the Castro valley in California. As you know here at Woody Boater, this is one of our fantasy boats, and we are also frieks about originality and low hours. Well, this one has 149 original hours, AND is very original. the interior is perfect according to Don. Dang… Dang and more dang. OH… and a big block 430 motor! DANG!!!!! Double dog doodelly dang dang!
Congrats to Pascal the new owner and Don. Looks like a fantastic winter project!
