This is not in the under $5k range, but still is a very affordable fun boat. We love these simple painted Rockets, and so did Tom. One of two owners. The other good news is that lots of work was done, like chrome, engine etc.
The not so good news is that she is still on her original bottom. Now, its Wisconsin, and maybe she will soak up.
As you may recall we featured one a couple years ago, with a new bottom for around $18K and that was a bargain. The varnished ones that are later years, 1950’s are AMAZING little boats and can handle rough water. The price range for these painted ones is 10K -15K with original bottoms, and not a whole lot more with a new bottom. These are a softer period look for the 1940’s though which was an amazing period for Chris Craft. But that was then and this is now, and now on ebay. So are we just alone in our love of these fun painted boats? Red white racers? Red and white anything? Where there other colored boats?
