ONE OF A KIND CUSTOM BUILT CLASSIC. This beautiful classic was designed and built for one customer in 1953 by Valco Aluminum Boats, a Div. of Valley Aluminum. It is the only boat of its kind. Valco is known worldwide as a leader in the manufacture of riveted aluminum boats.
The boat was originally designed to power with a Chrysler straight 8 but was reconfigured for a Chris Craft 180 hp V8. The Chris Craft was not enough power for the runabout so in 1975 a rebuilt Chevy small block 350 w/300hp was installed giving the boat exactly what she needed. This was added to the original Chris Craft Paragon hydraulic reverse gear transmission and Walter V Drive.
The hull design includes steering skags or skid rails at the bottom if the chins on each side to keep the boat from skidding thru the turns. It also has boarding steps on each side of the hull into the aft cockpit.
The engine is fresh water cooled and looks and sounds to be in excellent condition. It also has duel mufflers to tone down the exhaust a little, although it still sounds great!
Bow has room to add another fuel take and has the filler cap already in place.
Boat comes with 2 spare props, one toque and one speed.
Hull is completely foam filled making the boat unsinkable.
This is one of the coolest boats I have ever seen! The paint is in good shape and the polished aluminum hull will polish out to a mirror finish

ConditionBoat is in very good condition. Drop her in the water and go. She really only needs a good polish and wax to look like a solar flare on the lake.
