Further Comments

This 1964 Century Resorter has only been owned by two families in its 52 years of life. I am the 3rd owner (son of 2nd owner). First 20 years of its life were spent actively on Chain of Lakes in Fox Lake, IL. Second 20 were spent in outdoor storage in southeast Louisiana where the boat deteriorated to the point of requiring full restoration. Luckily boat was brought to TX in 2005, only 6 months before Katrina roared though SE LA. In doing so, it was spared of certain destruction and was able to be fully and professionally restored top to bottom, inside and out, in 2007. 

2007 Restoration included: Any and all rotted wood replaced. Gauges reworked. Original hours left intact on tachometer. Currently 597, was 579 at restoration. All chrome re-chromed. Stainless polished. New stainless fuel tank. Motor completely rebuilt. New Edelbrock marine carb. All interior vinyl was replaced. New seat foam. Bow and stern pennant poles restored. New flooring. New step pads. New windshield. Marine grade plywood and new mahogany planked bottom with 5200 sealer. Does get some water in bilge but easily handled by automatic bilge pump. Custom built RoadRunner trailer (with electric brakes) and break away tongue (for easy garage storage) included. Tires in excellent shape. New brake drums, pads, and bearings in 2016. 

Boat floor is covered with easily removable carpet to keep floor cool to the feet. Original center mounted ski pole. All lights and gauges work.

Garage kept since restoration. Less than 20 hours of use since restoration. Fresh water use only. Never in salt or brackish water. 

Modern bimini top (red to match) fitted to provide much needed shade in the TX summer sun. Original swim ladder. Foot pedal throttle.

Ford 390 Interceptor with Velvet drive 1:1 transmission. Fully rebuilt. Less than 20 hours on rebuild. Cylinders were bored .060 over so total displacement is 401 cubic inches. Mallory electronic ignition module in place of points. Barr Marine exhaust manifolds. I have an original set of manifolds and an extra oil pan. Boat does 40+ mph easily. 

Wood and varnish are in excellent condition. All interior is in excellent condition. 

This boat needs nothing to enjoy and show! Boat runs and rides great, just like a wood boat should! Used on central TX lakes this summer. Titles in hand. Boat and trailer registered in TX.

Asking $19,500, Or Best Offer. Highly motivated seller.

Can provide more photos as needed. Water tests arranged for serious inquiries only. Please reply if interested.  Thank you.
