Further Comments

This extremely rare Higgins has been restored within the last five years and has been used each summer since the restoration. I am the third owner, and the boat has been in Idaho since new. It has all the original gauges, steering wheel, with all the bakelite in excellent condition. All footpads, and chrome are in great shape. The flooring is the original inlaid linoleum; however, there are a few tears. I wanted to leave it as original as possible. It has been stored inside almost all its life, and that is evident.

I have refinished all of the mahogany plywood trim.

The engine is a 1952 Chris-Craft MBL straight six, with a single side draft carburetor. It runs great!
