21 Feet 1955 Chris Craft Cobra

This 1955 Chris-Craft 21’ Black Cobra is perhaps the first-and-only true vintage Hot Rod boat in the classic-boating hobby. This boat is believed to come about as a collaboration between Jim Street and his friend, George Barris. Prior to Street’s passing in 2017, he was known as the only original Cobra owner left, having purchased the boat new in 1955 at the age of 21. Street special-ordered Hull No. BR-21-010 custom from Chris-Craft through his local dealer. Since even the top-option Cadillac V-8 was not powerful enough for Street, he ordered the boat without an engine. This enabled him to install a Henry Meyer-built Cadillac V-8. He took delivery in February 1955. Soon after, a blower was installed to make the boat even faster. The hull modifications included painting the hull sides and iconic fin gloss black, blonde-stained covering boards, eight Buick porthole ventilators and quad exhaust tips. The Interior featured an array of added instruments, a port-side dash and a Batmobile-style twin-grip yoke steering control. This is the boat seen in the iconic "Beach Photo" staged with the Golden Sahara and was the featured attraction at the 2nd annual Bakersfield Motor and Boat Show in 1959 alongside the Golden Sahara II. In the more recent years the boat has had the bottom refastened, interior redone and a new wiring harness installed. We also had the super charger rebuilt and the engine gone through. We are trying to preserve the history Jim Street has created with this boat. Included in the sale is the trailer seen in the pictures.

19 Feet 1938 Chris Craft

Flyin’ By is a 1938 Chris Craft Double Cockpit Forward Custom Runabout powered by her original Chris-Craft Model LC (146 HP) flathead 6 engine with twin Zenith carburetors. (Her original block was replaced at some point along the way as well a matching exhaust manifold). Her hull number is 48264. She was delivered to her first owners in Detroit, MI on August 12 1937 and then subsequently sold to a family in Bloomfield Hills, MI in 1960 where she was enjoyed on Michigan’s Lake St. Clair until 2016 when she was purchased and brought to Lake Champlain in VT for her preservation and numerous upgrades noted below. Flyin’ By is a very unique boat and she is mostly original other than the typical safety and convenience upgrades to keep her and her crew safe. Upgrades are as follow: automatic bilge pump, original 6v electrical system was upgraded to 12v, Fireboy Clean Agent Fire Extinguishing system and a Fireboy M-1 Gasoline Fume Detector (installed 2017), new water intake pump (2019), True 3M 5200 bottom (completed 2019), transmission rebuilt by Robert Henkel (July 2019), leather seats reupholstered (1980 and July 2021). She comes with a custom fit Sea Lion tandem axel trailer with 6 bunks and brakes (spare tire) and a custom fit canvas mooring cover suitable for trailering. She’s ready to go with her original "Chris Craft" flag mounted on her bow and an American flag mounted aft of the engine compartment as well as dock lines and 3 custom embroidered fenders for docking.

16 Feet 1947 Chris-Craft Rocket

This model is also known in the Chris-Craft record books as a “Special Runabout.” The boat was bought in northern Michigan in the summer of 2016 and was in need of restoration. A complete restoration was conducted over the next three years from 2017-2019. This Rocket is wearing its atomic blue hull paint replicated from the original color. Due to the wood shortages following WWII, as well as the increase in demand of power boats in order for Chris Craft to fill orders, some boats were made from white cedar not mahogany. This model being the only Chris Craft boat made completely out of white cedar, varnishing does not have a similar appearance to mahogany. Leaving a few examples of this model to be painted in the only paint available in the Chris Craft Factory, “atomic blue,” or Chris Craft engine paint. Estimated to be one of 40 hulls originally painted in this color “atomic blue.” This Chris Craft is currently in heated winter storage and available for viewing and testing (weather permitting).
