If you had purchased the previously posted 1958 Cutter Jet de Ville and you were cruising up to your local marina for a fill up, Pennzoil wanted you to use their oil for your mixture and this vintage sign is how they would have let you know. Hang this vintage Pennzoil Outboard Motor Oil sign on your dock and the one guy still pre-mixing his outboard oil just might stop in for a fill up. Feast your eyes on this motherfucker – 1964 Hallett Barron v-drive. So, so, cool. Where do I start? The tuck and rolled glitter red over white interior is an absolute perfect match to the rest of this Hallett’s style. Top this whole package off with a matching pearlescent white tandem axle trailer with white walls and all I can do is try to figure out how to lift this entire boat through the picture window into my living room for permanent display. This Shepherd couldn’t wait to get out of its Ontario, Canada birthplace and enjoy the warm sun of Vincent, Alabama where it currently resides.
The seller does a nice job of demonstrating this boat’s condition through a good amount of quality photos.
The old mahogany plywood boats don’t get as much respect as the older planked woodies, but this is still a very good looking Shepherd. This is kind of the money shot to figure out what you’ve got to work with on this little Ski Sporter.
This thing is so gosh-darn fast that turbulence over the bow the past 50 years wore the fiberglass away.
Guessing the fiberglass engine cover is missing, probably similar across all Ski Sporters and Sweet 16s, but still, you’ve got to track one down or build it. This Collegian in Labanon, Indiana is powered by a Chrysler Crown six cylinder engine pushing out 135hp. The seller claims to have spent nearly twenty grand on the restoration of this old Correct Craft and it looks it – lots of new wood, a 5200 bottom and 15 coats of spar varnish later you can now buy it on eBay where the current bid is just short of $9,000 with the reserve not yet met. I did not put that little glimmer in that picture with Photoshop, that’s real shine, people. The all-new for 1958 Cutter Jet de Ville would set you back a staggering $845 according to the brochure posted by the owner of this little gem in Middlebury, Vermont. I am such a sucker for the old Mercury Kiekhaefer outboards, and this one done up in the sunset orange to match the Cutter Jet de Ville is like a shiny, yummy Skittle. The front of this vintage Cutter Jet de Ville would look really cool with some period correct chrome goodies – like a spotlight and dual horns.


The seller claims it’s all original – Cutter Jet De Ville, Mercury Mark 55 Thunderbolt outboard and the trailer. Do you have a large, empty wood shop just begging of a new project to gobble up floor space, keep your attention for the next 14 months, then be forgotten until you die and your children sell it off?Then you, my friend, are a perfect candidate for this 1951 Chris-Craft racing runabout project boat.
The low, frameless windshield with a single driver cockpit and the thought of a thru-hull exhaust roaring out the back gives me goose bumps.
If you share my passion for forgotten projects that are worth about half of what you have invested in them, shoot out to eBay where this Chris-Craft racing runabout in Mattituck, New York could be yours for a current bid (reserve not met) of about $5,000.
I can get past the missing engine when I lay my eyes on that original wheel and those gauges.
You show me a Chris-Craft with a lot of rotten wood, missing parts and no engine and I’ll show you an empty checking account. We see a lot of Century hardtops but this Coronado hardtop slider complete with porthole definitely deserves a little attention. I feel like if President Kennedy and Jackie O were going for a boat ride around the Hamptons, this would be their vessel of choice.
This Century Coronado sliding hardtop is currently listed on eBay in Couer d’Alene Idaho with a Buy it Now of $37,500.
Like a Ford Skyliner retractable hardtop, only it slides and shares its window with a Thunderbird. This Glastron Seaflite is a nearly 60 year-old marvel of sculpted coral over white fiberglass.
Fitted with the hardtop, which requires hands and knees ingress and egress, it certainly gets attention. This Glastron Seaflite has got all the right moves, and maintains nearly all of its original parts, pieces and trim.

She's fully loaded and has everything you need for a great day on the water with family and friends! She also has a handsome dash with full gauges and compass, and a mounted Lowrance fish and depth finder.
I would actually get some sort of creepy pleasure pain out of burning my ass on the red seats in the scorching sun. This Hallett Barron can be yours with some aggressive bidding on eBay where it’s currently creeping up on $26,000 (reserve not met) in Mooresville, North Carolina. We know the original powerplant is long gone, but I like the GM 350 conversion that puts out a claimed 300hp and propels this old plywood beauty to speeds in excess of 40 miles per hour. Moving an 18 foot long chunk of double-planked mahogany takes some power, and that was the biggest six cylinder Chrysler made at the time.
Fast forward almost 60 years and  this restored Jet de Ville is hovering right around $4,500 with the reserve not yet met on eBay.


Seller claims that every single part of this boat is in original and near perfect condition. The bulbous bow moves to a downward sweeping centerline darting back up to fins that make a ’57 Bel Air look kinda meh. This is an well powered, and well equipped boat for spending lazy summer days on the water with family and friends!
In the one photo from the stern it looks to be missing, in one side view, it appears it might be in there.
It looks it and I love it.The Kiekhafer outboard engine drools style like a dental patient on novocaine. A peak in the round glass is like a jittery old black and white movie featuring a gently-smiling Jackie Onassis in a polka dot high-waisted bikini enjoying herself while her first man handles the throttle.
I really like this old boat, but I just can’t get past all the dollars swirling around in a cyclone of lost investment. If you ever had concerns about your outboard motor oil being safe lubrication, and 100% Pennsylvanian, this old advertising sign would let you rest easy. Alas, to see it on this boat is magnificent, the grain is striking and a perfect match for any type of wooden racer. The interior appears clean and its got some obvious modern upgrades to compliment the vintage wooden style. The Mercury Mark 55 Thunderbolt Four is a name that should surely be resurrected by the folks in FonDuLac, Wisconsin. The Mercury Magnum LX engine is equipped with an aluminum Edlebrock intake and has less than 170 hours on it.
You can find this 1957 Shepherd utility runabout on eBay where the current bid just broke $5,000 and the reserve is unmet.
It’s all matched up with a Bravo outdrive and stainless Mirage Plus prop to give you plenty of power. While the exterior needs a few band aids, the interior shines. The mahogany side panels are elegant, fitting of a first lady, and the pleated interior vinyl is certainly more luxurious than new. But at a $7,500 opening bid with a $12,000 Buy it Now I think this boat might be moored in its Boulder, Colorado home for quite some time.
With a Buy it Now price of just $13,897 (dude comes up with some unusual numbers) it’s the perfect boat for a balla on a budget. Restore the mahogany exterior and grab your first lady – guaranteed, everyone will be looking in your porthole.
