A New Feature For Woody Boater. What’s in Your Drawers?

Century poster 22

A very Rare 1958 Century Brochure

Today we have decided to start a new regular feature called “What’s In Your Drawers” Thanks to our first Drawer puller Seth Katz for sharing some of his goodies that are tucked away around Katz’s Marina. You know the kinda stuff we are talking about. You see it and think, oh that’s cool, and then put it away in a drawer and forget that you even have it. Today, we do have a bit of a theme though, since we are seeing a bunch of cool Century and Chris Craft Brochures. Blue Arabian and 1948 for WECATCHEM stuff.

    I was going to drop my drawers and take pictures of my junk for you, but my wife talked me out of it.

    I have always loved the Century 1958 illustrated color brochure…Maybe because I own a 1958 Raven!

    How about some original 1941 advertising. The big sedan is near and dear to my heart!

    At my age – unfortunately – there’s not much in my drawers anymore. I do have some old catalogs on my shelves, however, and today’s post might prompt me to look at them again.

    I do have that header shot brochure in my collection. Neato!

      Is there a way to make the images clickable so they can be enlarged to read? Pretty neat images.

    if you right click on your mouse it says view image and they blow up. Sorry, for some reason it does this now on my stories, Texxs still do that. Texx’s stories is so perfect.. Damm him!

    From the red tags to dealership I gained more knowledge than before about the break-in and storage than I knew before. I wonder if anyone else really read it.

    Great feature. Please disregards any stains you may see in my photo. It was probably something on my camera lense.

      Thank you Floyd for removing them first.

      If the idea here is to submit pics of things we forgot we had how will we know we have them? I’m so confused.

    Dang, Karen & I just cleaned our drawers of old Chris-Craft stuff and shipped it to the CCABC Archive in Dallas. Had I known, there were some cool pre-war Chris-Craft brochures in the boxes that would have been perfect for your theme. The only things left in the drawers now are old stained drawers that no one is interested in (except floyd r turbo).

    Many century items including everything on this page except for the 2 1949 price lists. I have 1949 price list but mine is dated December 1 1948. Also many Chris Craft including a 1930 original 8 page pull out from a magazine… see cover below. I have never seen another for sale… And 2 model brochures from Century Boat Co 1928… The oldest literature I know of for Century…
