This boat is all set up for running....The motor is not included....The first two pics are with the motor so you can see what it looks like with a motor...This would be very good for racing...It drives very good and responsive....It is very light without the motor....It had a big Chevy 454 in it...The hull is in very good condition...The paint is fair..It does have some small dings from the dock and most of them could be either polished out or touched up if you wanted...There is a crack in the glass just above the exhaust on the left but it would be easy to fix...It has aluminum stringers along the rails inside and the rails are glassed in and are not rotten at all...The entire bottom on the inside was re glassed about 4 years ago and it is in very good shape...This is a very solid hull and could be used as it is no problem at all...All of the v drive is in working condition and it has a set of overdrive gears in it, they are about 1.28 over...There is a set of 1 to 1 gears that are included..It is a casel V drive...It is the older in and out style but it works perfectly...There is no reverse...only forward and neutral...The driveline is rebuilt and balanced and the prop shaft is straight with no vibration..The driveline cover is included also and the yoke around the driveline is all good for protection from the driveline....With these gears it would run at 78 mph at 5000 rpm...We had a 5000 rev limiter and GPS so we could track it....It does leak a little...I have had to replace the seals in the rudder and prop shaft every year but that's just a v drive....The steering all works good also...It is a single cable....and the throttle cable is all good too and the foot petal works perfectly...The interior is ok but not the greatest..The seats could use some work but it they are faded some but they are not torn up.....It has 2 - 11 gallon gas tanks on the side...I had them professionally built and they have baffles inside them to keep the gas from sloshing around and they are vented in the front...They are made from aluminum and have shut off valves on the outlet so you can use either one or both at a time...The left side has a tube so you can see how much gas there is in it...The prop is a 11X14 bronze propeller.....It has a few minor dings but works good.....With a big block this will handle a 16 pitch prop...This is a very nice setup if you want a project or just want to stick a motor in it and go...You can be going 70 mph and let go of the steering wheel and it goes straight as an arrow...I really don't want to sell it but I only used it once last year and it just sits around and I finally sold the motor so I am now selling the boat...My loss...I will miss the boat for sure...The wiring is all good but it doesn't have any electronics for the motor...The trailer is in good shape and it has brand new tires last year...Please look good at the pictures....I will require a $500.00 payment in 48 hrs and the rest in 7 days...I can hold the boat for you for up to 30 days if you need me to so you can make shipping arrangements....There is a cover for it but it isn't much good..It does keep the sun off of it and the cats out of it but I would probably replace it....There has never been a title for this boat...only a bill of sale... I have had it for about 25 years...We completely redone the paint and interior a few years ago and it has been covered or stored inside the whole time...I will be looking into getting a title for it through the county but there are no numbers on the hull and back then a bill of sale was all there was so no guarantee there but I will provide you with any paperwork you require and I will update the listing when I find out about getting a title.....Feel free to ask any questions...If I think of anything else I will amend the listing as I go..This is a bargain at this cost...I have put allot of money in this and the price doesn't cover even a third of it....But I'll take my chances...That is how it goes with boats...everything you see in the pictures are included except for the first two pics...I thought it would help if you could see the setup with the motor....Thanks for looking...
