Does Anyone Have Some Images Chris Craft Girl Jacki Paddock?

Jackie on the left. Not sure who in on the right – Jackie sure knows how to appear in a photo for sure.

We got a question from Lori Rose a relative of a Chris Craft Girl, looking for pictures that might help tell more of her history.

I wish Herb was still around, we could ask him.

I’m looking for a Chris-Craft model she was my sister-in-law’s mother back in the 50s. We’re from Algonac I grew up in Virginia Smith’s home. Did you ever by find some photos of Jackie and Virginia together? Jacklyn Paddock was her name. Do we have any images of Virginia?

We did find Marilyn Wilson & Marion McSweeny “The Twins” and Ruthie Malus

Sadly Jackie has recently passed away, her husband and his grandmother was a Rose which apparently was all part of the Smith family tree as well. Jackie worked at the original Chris Craft in Algonac for sometime.

Not sure? She will be in one of your Water ways or ads.

I would look in the 50’s these are too early


For the record, this is NOT HER!

So all you internet sleuths, sloths… look into your archives. Do we have any more shots of Jackie? Virginia? We will be on this!

On the right?

    I think we need to consult our resident babe expert Troy. If it is a bikini babe from any era, he can find information and pictures of her. If not Troy, Floyd can help us out. She was pretty. It will be interesting to know more about her life.

    Ms Jacklyn Paddock was quite a cutie. I don’t know or have any information on her or others used in CC ads. But I do know I like leopard prints. I can be of assistance there.

    George B. would be a good source.
    I spoke to Bob Davis out of Algonac about this; he said that Chuck Ames would have a been a great resource, although he just passed away.
    Chuck worked in the kit boat division, and then went fiberglass & also helped develop the jet boat for Chris Craft.
    …interesting history all around us!
